The Poof Point is a Disney Channel Original Movie, based on the children's novel "The Poof Point" by Ellen Weiss, M. Friedman. This was the first time Mark Curry and Dawnn Lewis worked together since the First Season of Hangin' With Mr. Cooper


Two scientists invent a time machine. A critical part (the "vector modulator") falls out of the time machine before they get into it to test it. Nothing seems to happen at first, but when they wake up the next day they are regressing in age (mentally, not physically). Their kids, Marie (Raquel Lee) and Eddie (Tahj Mowry) seem to notice something strange is going on, judging by their behavior. Soon enough, the children realize that it is the machine that has changed their parents. The parents gradually get younger and the kids notice that the fish that their parents were experimenting on earlier seemed to just disappear after growing younger in a "poof" of sorts. The point at which something ceases to exist thus becomes known as the "poof point". The kids know they have to get the parents in the machine and reverse the effect some way before their parents, too, just "poof" away.

After managing to undo the effects to the machine, the kids learn that their parents retain vague memory of the mental regression. However, as a result, the adults have re-experienced their youth and become closer to their kids.
