Even though all it is meant to be is a loving send up of '80s comedy, all it really does is make one long for the real thing.

Pink doesn't care much for character development, which would just about be forgivable if he made a decent fist out of capturing and poking fun at 80s fashion, music and culture.

It may be a generational gap that turned me off, but I thought it was all quite ridiculous and the dialogue worse than coarse. Trust me and not those in their 30s. It is not worth your time.

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.

A missed opportunity.

It's the sort of film Cusack probably wouldn't have been caught dead in a few years ago, which is a sad, if perhaps a truthful reflection of what happens when people hit their 40s and resign themselves to the way things are.

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.

The film is ugly, gross and obnoxious, with all the vulgarity and vomiting you might expect.

As far as time-travelling farces go, file this under John and Chev's Sucky Adventure.

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

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

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.

Finds a host of familiar faces performing below their best on a time-warp trip.
