The first screen adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut's novel by the same name does the remarkable task of faithfully capturing the popular novelist's vision and manic black humor. Billy Pilgrim (Michael Sacks), a buck-toothed Everyman, living in middle-class America, becomes unstuck in time. In a dazzling cascade of time and space shuttles, Billy travels to the planet Tralfamador, where he lives with a glamorous movie star, and bounces through past events of his life.

120 minutes. Rated R. Directed by George Roy Hill and starring Michael Sacks and Ron Liebman.
