yes, I just saw the episode of "The Big Bang Theory" where the gang buys a full size replica of the Time Machine. it was pretty cool, and when they "used" it they did a really good and funny job pretending to be moving in time.
of course, my friend had never seen the movie, and thought it was funny as well- though for slightly different reasons. sure, I'd like to show her the movie, but the trailer may have to do for the moment. it's a good adaption of the book.
