Is it wrong to want to nominate Craig Robinson for God?
Dudes go back to high school to... er, fix things?
Cheap Substitute of Back to Future. Actors are ok, and they did their best to play in a movie with tasteless humour+vulgar sex cuts. Drama?Comedy? a little of both but neither of them were well done...
This is really rotten… Repetitive, boring, not funny, Hot Tub Machine doesn't use its great cast potential to make it worth, but for make a cliched comedy movie without any scene worthy of laugh.
If you're GenX, the hilarious "Hot Tub Time Machine" will fill you with the joyous raunch you crave. Unapologetically heavy on absurdist sex and genius '80s references, this is a massive triumph in laddish and banal buddy movie humor, and serves as a bridge from proudly bawdy predecessors like 1999's "South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut" to modern day purveyors of the lascivious like "Sausage Party" and recent indie music industry spoof "Stadium Anthems."
Three now-grown high school friends (John Cusack, Craig Robinson, Rob Cordry) return to a ski lodge frequented in their glories of youth to reclaim some mojo from their soul-destroying adult lives. They inebriate in the hot tub, only to wake and realize they're back in 1986 -- and that's because the hot tub is actually a time machine. Ludicrous? Straight up. Sidesplitting and completely aspirational? Absolutely.
Rest assured, vomiting, urination, and fornication happen here en masse. But "Hot Tub Time Machine" isn't just time-tripping, gross-out Eighties nostalgia: In its deceptively big heart, it's a film about the enduring nature of childhood friendships under intense pressure from the debasing rigors of modern American adulthood. That balance of gleeful filth and relatable mid-life sentiment has allowed "Hot Tub Time Machine" to earn its chops as a true comedy classic.
"Hot Tub Time Machine" is a hit-and-miss comedy that often tries too hard to get a laugh. John Cusack helps bring a little more class and dignity to the film. Rob Cordry arguable steals the movie...but that is a good and a bad thing.
Sebastian Stan was super loyal to America since hot tub days 😂🤣😂
its not an original idea by any means, but does enough to make you laugh at points.
THIS WAS THE GREATEST MOVIE OF ALL TIME AND IF YOU DISAGREE I HATE YOU
Hot tub time machine is surprisingly satisfying and worth the trip.
Great fun flick. Makes me smile just thinking about it.
