Hot Tub Time Machine [DVD] [UK]
Region 2 Europe+ (
Disappointed at the way their lives have turned out, four longtime friends reunite at the ski resort where they used to party and find themselves transported back to the year 1986 by a magical jacuzzi. Adam (John Cusack), Lou (Rob Corddry), Nick (Craig Robinson), and Jacob (Clark Duke) have all seen better days; Adam's and Nick's love lives are in the dumps, Lou is clinging to his hard-partying past, and video-game addict Jacob can't even muster the courage to walk outside. A fun stay at the ski resort where the gang made some of their best memories seems like just the thing to cheer everyone up, but after a night of heavy drinking in the hot tub, the four friends wake up to find they're about to live through the '80s a second time. Determined not to make the same mistakes twice, Adam, Lou, Nick, and Jacob decide to take full advantage of the unique opportunity presented to them, and create the lives they've always wanted. Chevy Chase, Crispin Glover, and Lizzy Caplan co-star.
John Cusack, Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson, Lizzy Caplan, Crispin Glover, Crispin Hellion Glover, Sebastian Stan
"[With] a crush of very cool '80s references, Cusack chief among them' some gross-out moments that are genius...Oh, and about a billion laughs..."
Los Angeles Times
"[T]here is a brilliant send-up of the prom scene where Michael J. Fox's Marty McFly invented rock 'n' roll."
New York Times
"[A] good-natured raunchfest....With Glover on hand and Chevy Chase as a time-portal repairman in a modified Christopher Lloyd role, all that's missing is the DeLorean."
"With sharp riffs on the intersection of '80s pop culture and 21st-century culture, this TIME MACHINE is a fun dip into a pool of memories..." -- Grade: B
"MACHINE succeeds largely on the chemistry of its leads: '80s icon of uber sensitivity Cusack's puppy-dog earnestness contrasts nicely with Robinson's dispirited deadpan understatement and Corddry's relentless, needling comic aggression."
3 stars out of 4 -- "Corddry here achieves a level of comic confidence that seems almost uncanny....HOT TUB TIME MACHINE, which wants nothing more than to be a screwball farce, succeeds beyond any expectations suggested by the title..."
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Picture a randy teen comedy clad in day-glo, but consistent with today's improved hindsight and looser decency standards."
"It's a kick to watch Corddry go nuts and Robinson wow a 1980s crowd by singing the Black Eyed Peas..."
3 stars out of 4 -- "HOT TUB TIME MACHINE simmers right along like so many Jacuzzi bubbles popping with a carefully calibrated mix of sight gags, sex jokes and baby boomer references..."
3 stars out of 5 -- "HOT TUB's writers keep things simple, transporting its four loser heroes back to one weekend in 1986....[With a] playful, HANGOVER-like rapport..."
3 stars out of 5 -- "Crispin Glover's limb-jeopardizing skits are a highlight..."
