Three friends on losing streaks: Adam, whose girlfriend dumped him, Nick, with a dead-end job and a cheating wife, and Lou, a suicidal alcoholic. To help Lou recover from car-exhaust poisoning, Adam and Nick, with Adam's nephew Jacob, go to a winter resort that was their old party place. It's now a dump, but the lads rally for a night of drinking in the hot tub. Somehow, the hot tub takes them back to 1986, on a fateful night for each of them. Maybe if they do everything the same way they did that night, they'll get back to the future so Jacob can be born. There are serious temptations to do things differently. Will they make it back to their sorry lives? And what about Jacob? Written by
I love kitsch and this movie is just that. I like the idea of a hot tub time machine and can only applaud any writer who came up with such a rubbishy idea for a movie. Liked the back to the 80's bits as I too was one of those people dressed liked that. I loved Poison and Skid Row and make no apologies for being a teen in the 80's. Fun movie, just don't expect high art. Think Weekend at Bernie's and you won't be far wrong as far as comedy goes. Well chosen cast. They are playing a bunch life's losers and we can all equate with that. Like I have said in other reviews, I'm a sucker for movies so bad they are good but this one is just a little better than that.
