Hot Tub Time Machine- Movie Review


As the title so brilliantly suggests this movie is about a hot tub that doubles as a time machine… Similarly to Back 2 The Future and Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure the four main characters-played by John Cusack, Rob Corddry, and Craig Robinson and Clark Duke, go back into the past. But instead of trying to change how things went down, considering that their lives pretty much suck, they’re all fairly determined to relive every experience (some awesome, some not so awesome) in the exact same way.

Where the real laughs come in, is when the main characters try to overcome the temptation to fiddle with their 1980’s pasts, flirting with the possibility that say by them not squirting mayonaise on their pants before saying a speech at their mother’s second wedding they might cause the internet to never be invented.


There’s a wise old time travelling guru in this movie too (sound familiar?) and I found the 80’s references to cassettes and Street Fighter to be worth a chuckle considering that this is the era that I grew up in…

If you like time travel or hot-tubs then this movie is one that you should definately catch.


It opens in South Africa on… well who the hell knows, probably sometime next year haha. Go watch it on the net or dont, piracy is naughty and illegal afterall.
