The Spirit of '76 (1990)

01/01/1990 (US) ComedyScience Fiction 1h 22m

A close-up look at the most embarrassing decade in history.


Future Americans decide to time travel to 1776 to ask the founding fathers for the solutions to their problems. A glitch in the time machine changes their destination to 1976. Still believing themselves to be in 1776, the time travellers attempt to study this "ideal" civilization. 70's jokes, props and stars abound.
