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.

More Movie Taglines:
- A close-up look at the most embarrassing decade in history.
- Cheryl Dickman: What sign are you? Because my mood ring just, like, totally changed colors.
Dr. Von Mobil: We, the People, have a right to remain silent. Anything you say may be used against you. One nation, invisible, with Liberty and Christmas for all.
Miss Liberty: Let's take a look at the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, because in a sense that's where it all starts: A lie from the President to manipulate Congress in order to fund an undeclared war? Now not only does this render the Tripartite system functionally useless, but it's clearly a violation of the Oath of Office prescribed by the Constitution itself.
- Production team includes a number of relatives of famous movie people. One of the executive producers is Roman Coppola (son of Francis Ford Coppola). Sofia Coppola is credited for costume design. Produced/casting by Susan B. Landau (daughter of Martin Landau).
Cameo: [Devo] as people in the future.
Originally, the woman in the porno booth was going to be topless except for suspenders over each breast. When Julie Brown was cast, she got them to change it to her wearing a bikini top.
