Storyline

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 <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

Crispin Glover, who plays the bellhop at the hotel, also starred as George McFly in Back to the Future (1985), another time-traveling movie that takes place partially in the mid-1980s. Additionally, he lost his arm in an accident whose cause isn't shown until the end, just like the cause of his son Marty's hand injury isn't explained until the end of Back to the Future III.

Goofs

(at around 1h 02 mins) After the end of the scene where Jacob sees the repairman at the cigarette machine, the next scene opens with Nick still passed out and leaning against the side of a urinal. After Nick wakes up you can see a smudge of his makeup on the side of the urinal for the rest of that scene. See more »

Quotes

Lou: It's the fucking 80's guys. Let's do what we want to do. Free Love!
Jacob: That's the 60's, dipshit.
Adam: We had like Reagan and AIDS. Let's get the fuck outta here, okay? Do the right thing, Violator!

Forget reality and enjoy this movie
26 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Although as a warning this movie had some pretty intense language, and very crude humor I enjoyed it so much. The actual plot of this movie as depicted on the trailer is in no way realistic at all which adds to it's humor. Isn't that what we go to the movies for? A little escape of reality for a while? This movie from first moment to last is hilarious in every way and the jokes keep rolling. This movie is like all of the greater 80's movies piled into one with a mix of Back to the Future. Every character in this movie had a significant number of hilarious jokes, and the entire audience was laughing hysterically. In my opinion this was better than The Hangover because every 2 minutes I found myself laughing harder and harder at every joke. Great movie.
