frankqbNot quite the "so bad its good" classic it pretends to be, HTTM has a few funny moments and acknowledges them all with its tongue very much in cheek (note the recreation of several famous 1980s movie scenes), but ultimately it's not all that great. Predictable story and predictable humour. Mildly entertaining anyway. 12 years 2 months ago
TorgoToo much gross-out humor and cussing make this comedy less enjoyable than it could be, but it has its moments. John Cusack deserves better. 7 years ago
SiskoidHot Tub Time Machine is essentially The Hangover with time travel, so I was at war with myself as to whether I would ever watch it. Turns out, it's a pretty fun movie. I like the actors, whose screen presence transcends the fact they are written as entitled, prejudiced jerks. I like the riff on Quantum Leap, even if the time travel mechanics aren't ironclad. I like the 80s jokes and soundtrack, though I'm left cold by much of the crass gross-out humor. It's biggest flaw is that it has nothing to say. It's a coming of (middle) age movie, but it has no strong opinion on what that means, or how its characters should grow as people by revisiting their youth. Anything they should confront about themselves is magically fixed by the changes they introduce in the time line, so I guess it's just a power fantasy where you don't need to change, everything else does. But it doesn't really know it's saying that. It's not saying anything. So I'm content to have found it amusing and I will leave it at that. 3 years 9 months ago
