Pax is an archaeologist from 1000 years in the future. After a particularly interesting excavation, he finds a romance novel and becomes intrigued with words that no longer exist in his time, like love. As part of a study he travels back in time to seek out the author and learn what it’s all about.

I’m not exactly sure why this movie exists. It’s strange. It seems like the only people who would really enjoy it are on the verge of puberty, but it also seems mostly geared toward adults. I’m not sure why that makes sense. Their target audience just seems a bit broad from the viewpoint of the creators, but very narrow from the viewpoint of the audience. Someone needed a reality check when making this film.

The actors weren’t impressive at all. If anything, the characters seemed over-exaggerated so much so that Muppets could have replaced them and made the story more believable. The plot itself didn’t completely suck, but the nuances that made up the whole simply didn’t work as well together as well as the writer probably hoped. There were a few cute scenes, but no more substance than that.

In the end, it’s a TV movie. No one will mistake it for anything different.
