Plot: 5 college boys, Takuma, Masaru, Shunsuke, Atsushi and Daigo all belong to sci-fi club, but they are not interested in science at all. They usually just hang around, play baseball or card, or take bath at the public bath. One day, they accidentally spill Coke on the remote controller of the air-conditioner. In the sweating bath-like clubroom, suddenly a time machine appears. Eventually, they decide to go back to 'yesterday' to bring the remote-controller. The mission ought to be quite easy, however, gradually they come to be worried. 'What if we change the past? Aren't we going to disappear like in movies?'
«Summer Time Machine Blues is mainstream entertainment but it is actually entertaining which, unfortunately, stands out as quite a major achievement among recent Japanese entertainment films. Motohiro has demonstrated here that he can navigate a teen sci-fi farce as well as a humorous bureaucratic police drama, that is to say, rather well.»
«When it comes to sci-fi comedy, Summer Time Machine Blues is, quite possibly, one of the funniest time travel movies ever made. Sure, maybe later, I'll want to go back in time and reverse such an overwhelmingly positive endorsement, but somehow, I doubt it. Summer Time Machine Blues is a fun movie - for any era.»

«Absolutely hilarious film, that is as funny as it is clever in its plot construction. ... Summer Time Machine Blues has a seriously wicked plot and is a blast to experience. Highly recommended film that should appeal to anyone that watches the film.»
«Summer Time Machine Blues is a great little film that does not try to be the best time travel film ever made, but it fits the niche very well. ... Now for the part I thought that was lacking in the film…the acting.»
