That's not how time travel things work.
I WANT to like this film, given that I'm crazy about guinea pigs, but that very fact made me pretty mad with all the depictions of poor husbandry and generally bad animal care in this film. Yes, I know it isn't real, but I also know that kids copy what they see on screen and I pity the animals that were bought as a result of this film.
