Destination: Hot Tub Time Machine
Inspiration: E!’s Film Critic Ben Lyons
“The movie is hilarious, and the screening will be a lot of fun (i.e, boozing encouraged) so I hope you can make it.”
Hot Tub Time Machine follows a group of best friends who’ve become bored with their adult lives: Adam (John Cusack) has been dumped by his girlfriend; Lou (Ron Corddry) is a party guy who can’t find the party; Nick’s (Craig Robinson) wife controls his every move; and a video game-obsessed Jacob (Clark Duke) won’t leave his basement. After a crazy night of drinking in a ski resort hot tub, the men wake up, heads’ pounding, in the year 1986. This is their chance to kick some past and change their futures- one will find a new love life, one will learn to stand up for himself with the ladies, one will find his mojo, and one will make sure he still exists!
If you had a Hot Tub Time Machine what year would you go back to revisit? Would you change the course of your life or find something out?
I can think of a few hot tubs I might revisit….hmmm….I think I prefer to focus on the ones I’ll be stepping into in the future.
Watching John Cusak and friends go back to the 80s via hot tub was a trip. Hot Tub Time Machine was hilarious and reminiscent with songs like Salt N Pepa’s Push It and Motley Crue’s Home Sweet Home.
Craig Robinson was my favorite hot tub-er, partially because of the red onesy he wore out of the tub AND partially because he plays Nick Weber, a name shared by my college crush. Nick Weber goes back to play out his dream as a musician. Craig Robinson/Nick Weber can we please karaoke Jessie’s Girl together?
Clearly I don’t review movies. Do a shot, hold your breath and dive into Hot Tub Time Machine.
