HTTM centres around a group of friends who decide to go back to an old ski-town where they spent much of their youth to re-live memories and make some new ones after their mundane lives start to get the better of them. After finding themselves in a Hot Tub which, from the title of the movie, does a little more than just it’s primary function!
HOT TUB TIME MACHINE follows a group of best friends who’ve become bored with their adult lives: Adam (Cusack) has been dumped by his girlfriend; Lou (Corddry) is a party guy who can’t find the party and Nick’s (Robinson) wife controls his every move.
The men decide to go on a wild weekend away, and go back to the ski resort where, as teenagers, they had the time of their lives. Adam’s video game-obsessed nephew Jacob (Duke) is dragged along for the ride but they soon realise that things have changed a lot since 1986, and Kodiak Valley is now as dull as their lives have become.
After a crazy night of drinking in their hot tub, the men wake up, heads pounding, in the year 1986. Get ready for a serious hit of nostalgia and follow them as they attempt to change their futures for the better, retracing the outrageous sex and booze fuelled adventure that was their teenage years!
Hot Tub Time Machine was an excellent movie. It’s great to see a simple idea be turned into a great comedy with silly but clever concepts and a great cast all pulled together to make it happen. I’ve only seen Duke in Kick-Ass before and I think he’s an acting talent that we’re going to see a lot more of in the future.
Cusack does what he does best and makes us laugh with his dry, matter of fact humour while it’s great to see Glover and Chase back on the big screen. If you like comedies that are a little different, somewhat silly but guaranteed to make you laugh from beginning to end, then this is it! I just wish MGM had made more movies like this, they wouldn’t be in the financial difficulties that they are now.
