“Hot Tub Time Machine” Movie Review



Director: Steve Pink
Writer: Josh Heald
Cast: John Cusack, Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson, Clark Duke, Lizzy Caplan, Crispin Glover, Sebastian Stan, Charlie McDermott, Chevy Chase
Plot: Four guy friends, all of them bored with their adult lives, travel back to their respective 80s heydays thanks to a time-bending hot tub.

Pros: The idea, the trailer, the theater lobby stand-ups. John Cusack and Chevy Chase in an 80’s movie had great potential.

Cons: The execution lacked big time. Never quite hit its potential.

Overall: When I heard Cusack going back to the 80’s I was geeked. I was ready to revisit the energy of Wierd Science, Sixteen Candles, Better off Dead, One Crazy Summer the list goes on. Add Chevy Chase (Fletch) and the brother who played the door man at the club in Knocked Up and you SHOULD have a winner! Unfortunately and to my dismay the anticipation, the trailer, and the lobby displays are the best and only good things about this waste of 2 hours. Save your time and money. If you MUST see this one, I’d rank it worth the barber shop bootleg.

Original Twitter Review: Hot Tub Time Machine was a waste of time. I like those actors and 80’s movies. Just didn’t work out.

    The movie definitely had some hilarious parts but not worth the $12 entry .. I suggest yo add it to your Netflix or stop by Redbox when it hits DVD
