You might not fall out of your seat laughing, but the film is consistently enjoyable from start to the very clever and amusing finish and with its brisk 93 minutes, it's worth taking a dip in this tub.

What Hot Tub Time Machine critically lacks is any sense of wit in its humour. Vomit, urination, male nudity and gay panic jokes take up a large amount of the film's time.

Like most guy-centric films these days, this film is ragingly homophobic and misogynistic, and you know what? These are some of the best parts. It is a testament to the wit of the writers and the charisma of the cast that we are never turned off.

If the filmmakers had thrown in some variety, it might have worked, because I'm sure they were going for more than just a feeling of indifference.

Those drawn in by the name will surely get exactly what they expected and then some.

It not only wears its absurdity as a badge of honor, but quite literally looks us in the eye and dares us not to laugh.

Well played, Hot Tub Time Machine, well played. You defied expectations, in a good way, and managed to evolve from "potentially silly concept" to "fairly funny film."

Yes, it's funny. Often really funny.

Through its slack editing and direction, Hot Tub Time Machine gives the impression of a halfhearted effort, as if the film's name and story were wacky enough that any old gag would do.

it has the timing and insight of a Borscht Belt comic from the 1930s.

The Hangover meets Back to the Future in this hilarious and unapologetically adult buddy chuckler.

Hot Tub Time Machine is rough around the edges ... [but] it offers us closure on a decade of great comedy -- from the very silly Anchorman to the deathly serious Funny People -- in which childish men are forced to grow the hell up.

Hollywood nam ovim filmom pokazuje da, s vremena na vrijeme, zna stare ideje iskoristiti na svje i zabavan način

It doesn't care to explain how a jacuzzi becomes a de facto DeLorean ... nor does it get too bogged down in its butterfly effect meddlings -- it just wants to be a piece of good-times stupidness.

Despite the naff-sounding name which could easily have been a throwaway offering, it's actually one of the more fun comedies which sees grown men reduced to acting like teenagers.

Despite being more muddled than a frat house 'cocktail', still manages to maintain a level of charm.

Greed is still good for these children of the 80s in the high concept mess Hot Tub Time Machine.

Admirably turns a potentially one-note joke into a consistently funny package.

Mindlessness done pretty well. Three middle-aged friends and a Gen Next tag along whose lives haven't turned out as they'd hoped travel back to 1986 via the titular device. Stupid fun ensues, some of it involving Crispin Glover.
