Critic Reviews for Hot Tub Time Machine
I'll go, it's a comedy, it'll be dumb and funny. And it was dumb. But it wasn't that funny yet.
An irreverent, guilty pleasure, frat boy comedy, it blows a big fat raspberry at sci-fi fans and tells them to stick their Flux Capacitors where the sun don't shine.
It may be a generational gap that turned me off, but I thought it was all quite ridiculous and the dialogue worse than coarse. Trust me and not those in their 30s. It is not worth your time.
Well played, Hot Tub Time Machine, well played. You defied expectations, in a good way, and managed to evolve from "potentially silly concept" to "fairly funny film."
Admirably turns a potentially one-note joke into a consistently funny package.
Audience Reviews for Hot Tub Time Machine
I did not to expect to enjoy this movie so much or laugh so hard, and I still laugh with each repeated viewing. One reason my expectation were low is that the whole time travel concept is so played out. However, with a title as ridiculous as this one, you know you're going to have fun! The plot delivers hope for all who have regrets and for whom life has churned out disappointments, but mostly it's the interplay between the characters that delivers. Cusack irritates me mostly, but not in this film-he's the rock that holds the group together. Its Rob Corddy's character Lou, that holds this film together. He's the loser friend that we all have who just wants to relive his glory years, and you get to do it with him here-and better the second time around (Louggle!) I love Craig Robinson in this too; I'd like to see more of his work. This is the best time travel movie since Back to the Future and one of the best buddy comedies in years. I like this one more than Wild Hogs or even The Hangover. Since this is my generation, nostalgia does contribute to the experience, but anyone will enjoy this visit to the glory days of MTV and "Red Dawn." Don't you wish you'd been at Kodiak Valley for Winterfest 86?
Well. I guess you can say this is the best movie about a hot tub time machine that I've ever seen. But I mean, the sequel's coming out soon, so who knows.
Was this film necessary? I think not -- unless you're a child of the 1980s who never matured emotionally. Awful acting and a worse script. The costumes were the only redeeming element of the film.
