Hot Tub Time Machine (2010)


A malfunctioning time machine at a ski resort takes a man back to 1986 with his two friends and nephew, where they must relive a fateful night and not change anything to make sure the nephew is born. (IMDb)
Despite having the always fun time-travel trope, the plot feels pretty lame (it’s mostly just dumb party schtick with girls and booze), and a generally comedically flat lead foursome doesn’t help the entertainment value. There are a few good jokes (Glover’s recurring missing arm gag is great; the completely unexplained “Great White Buffalo” is a delightful bit of nonsense) and the usually annoying Lou’s manipulation of the past at the end is fun, but it’s a mostly mediocre movie otherwise.
5.5/10 (Poor)
