Movie Review: Hot Tub Time Machine (2010)

Three unpleasant jerks (Nick, Adam, Lou) and Nick’s cellar dweller nephew (Jacob) head off to a run down ski resort to muse on their miserable lives. They get drunk in the hot tub and are transported back to 1986.

There is excessive swearing, Nick (John Cusack) runs into his ex Jenny (Lyndsy Fonseca of ‘Nikita’), Jacob sees his mother and learns who his dad is, Chevy Chase lurks and a jerk ski patrol dude annoys. They manage to change their lives. This was okay but did it have to be so sexist?

Best Lines:
“Lily moved out.”
“Is that what all the shuffling was?”

“Does he have any family?”
“His family all kind of hate him.”

“Remember when I was 12 and he tried to bite me?”
“Yeah, but you had that coming.”

“I write ‘Stargate’ fan fiction so I think I know what I’m talking about.”
