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.

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.

Say what you will about The Hangover, but at least it had structure. At least it felt like an actual movie.

Someone in particular really lifts the movie %u2013 his name is Crispin Glover and he is a comic genius. You might remember seeing him in a more exciting and more humorous time-travelling movie from another era.

(Rob) Corddry's performance is so aggravating that he makes Steve Urkel seem tolerable.

Star power and a quirky premise alone are not enough to sustain a feature length comedy when too many of the gags are inadequately developed.

With its broadly drawn characters, dated pop-culture humor and tired gags, Hot Tub Time Machine comes off like the edgier Gen X edition of Wild Hogs.

Utilizing pervasive social media and numerous promo screenings, the movie looks to open well. It's just too bad Pink and company declared open season on an embarrassing decade then armed themselves with a urine-filled squirt gun.

What could be a platform for retro fun, inventive plotting, and outrageous humor instead becomes mired in tired time travel clichés, trite '80s shtick, and lazy comedy.

I can understand why John Cusack would like to find a time machine to take him back to 1986. That was the last time he was making popular movies.

How bad must a movie be to be good fun? How dumb to be smart? Whatever the case, Hot Tub Time Machine doesn't make the cut.

... when all of a studio's hopes and dreams are pinned on a movie as insignificant and tossed off as this, maybe the lion's got no more roar left in it.

If you've seen the trailer, you've seen the best bits.

A potentially wry comedy about time travel plunges into a hot tub of tepid juvenilia.

Pink's derivative vision plays out like a mullet in the new millennium.

In the end, it turns out the funniest thing about Hot Tub Time Machine is its inspired title. And you can enjoy that without paying to see it.

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

Hot Tub Time Machine is 'The Hangover' lite. Very lite.

Yes, there are some laugh-out-loud moments, but this is a one-joke movie.
