Movie Review – Hot Tub Time Machine
Hot Tub Time Machine
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.
What Worked: Ok, here we go. Hot Tub Time Machine. Do I really need to say more? Based on this title how could you not immediately want to run out and see this? Still no? Whats wrong with you? Ever since I saw the red band teaser trailer back in July, I’ve been hyped up to see this. One of the great things about this, besides how funny it is, is the cast. Besides John Cusak, the other 3 leads are usually “second bananas” and are only cast in small roles. But this brings out the people who I’ve watched for years to the forefront. With as much hype as this movie was getting before it came out, it had to great. No one was saying a bad word about it. And they all turned out to be right. When I heard it was “this years The Hangover“, i was annoyed because I hate movie comparisons like that. But it really is this years The Hangover. If, for some strange reason, you didn’t like that movie, then you’d better skip this one.
What Didn’t Work: Going into this I knew it was going to be stupid. But good stupid, not Disaster Movie stupid. So, if your one of those people who cant watch a movie without noticing all its plot holes and being bothered by it, than this isn’t the movie for you. And if I had one complaint, it would be how much the ending makes no sense. But its a time travel movie. Those never make any sense.
