Film: Hot Tub Time Machine

For some reason I assumed that this was a comedy aimed at teenagers,
fortunately I was wrong.

Three middle aged men (and a nephew of one of them) find themselves transported back in time to their hayday of 1986.

Full of crude gags this won't be everyone's cup of tea but I thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish.

The cast look like they are having a great time and John Cusack delivers his best performance since Grosse Point Blank as the guys try their best to re-enact the events of the time in order to keep their future intact.

If your looking for some light hearted entertainment, your over the age of 30, are nostalgic about the 80's and you have an open mind you won't be disappointed.

  1. I'll place it in my NetFlix cue then!

  2. Hi Alex,
    If you like the sound of it I'm sure you'll enjoy it. It was better than expected.

  3. I think I skipped it in the theater because I was afraid it would be worse than expected!

    Looking forward to your Movie Dirty Dozen on Monday!

  4. does it compare well with The Hangover?

  5. Still working on that dozen Alex....

    Michael, I'd say I enjoyed it just as much, well maybe The Hangover just shades it.

  6. I was curious about the Hot Tub Time Machine. Thanks for the review.
