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.
March 26, 2010
It is this year's funniest film so far. And it's probably even funnier after a couple of Bartles & Jaymes.

For hilarity, characterization and clever structure, The Hangover is far superior. Still, there are some laughs in this uneven but good-natured raunchfest.

Hot Tub Time Machine should have been better than this.
March 25, 2010
I am genuinely saddened not to have enjoyed Hot Tub Time Machine.

Hot Tub Time Machine is a surprisingly enjoyable way to waste 90 minutes if you're into dude humor and penis jokes.
March 25, 2010
A sort of over-heated alternative universe where a funny-again Chevy Chase shows up as the hot tub repair man, the band Poison is all the rage and the '80s kitsch is outstanding.
March 25, 2010
It's a reminder of how good it is to be able to laugh at the passage of time, because otherwise, you're crying.
March 25, 2010
A reverent, foulmouthed, shoddily shot ode to the bottom-feeding cinema of the Reagan era.

Hot Tub is the gross-out-comedy equivalent of spaghetti-testing. Many jokes are hurled against the wall. Only a few stick. Yet the sheer number and velocity of the pitches made me giddy.
March 25, 2010
Hot Tub Time Machine zooms right by, barely pausing on its way out (like, mercifully, the '80s hair it depicts), forgotten almost before it's over.
March 25, 2010
A perfect collision of high-energy and high-concept, Hot Tub benefits from near-complete lack of inhibition and a total immersion in dude-centered shenanigans.

Machine is engaging enough, but its characters' path to redemption would be more satisfying if it weren't greased with authentically '80s-style casual sexism, gay panic, and frat-comedy clichs.
March 25, 2010
It's a bro-down, and every second has been calibrated for maximum bro-fficiency.
March 25, 2010
... Unhinged, unrepentant and hilarious, unequivocally the best American comedy we've had in a long time. ... As a popcorn pop-culture snack for aging Gen-X'ers with their own memories and regrets, it's a fun, fast, fearless comedy.
March 25, 2010
At its best the film is blissfully, anarchically funny, and director Steve Pink keeps the pace crackling.
March 25, 2010
Hot Tub Time Machine isn't a good movie, but like a bubbling bath it keeps pounding at us until our resistance wears down.
March 25, 2010
A chlorinated, R-rated Back to the Future, Hot Tub Time Machine accomplishes what Snakes on a Plane did not: It offers a merrily idiotic movie to go with its willfully idiotic title.
March 25, 2010
Hot Tub Time Machine, which wants nothing more than to be a screwball farce, succeeds beyond any expectations suggested by the title and extends John Cusack's remarkable run.
March 24, 2010
What could be a platform for retro fun, inventive plotting, and outrageous humor instead becomes mired in tired time travel clichs, trite '80s shtick, and lazy comedy.
