The Hot Tub Time Machine

Pop Quiz
What do you get when you mix together a Russian Energy Drink, Vodka, A Hot Tub, and Four Miserable Dudes? 
If you said: A time traveling adventure back to the 1980's, you are absolutely correct!
The Hot Tub Time Machine (2010), is directed by Steve Pink and stars John Cusack, Rob Corddry, and Craig Robinson as four Best Friends experiencing a bout of really bad luck. When they hear that Lou (played by Rob Corddry), is in the hospital after an attempt at suicide, they decide to pack up their bags, and Adam's basement troll nephew Jacob (played by Carl Duke), and escape to Kodiak: a winter resort and party hot spot from their youth. Upon arriving in Kodiak (which, awesomely enough, was filmed in Fernie, BC) they realize that their favorite place to party is completely dead, much like their lives. So what else to do then get absolutely smashed and jump in the hot tub? 

Cheers, Bro!
  Somewhere along the blurred, drunken line, a can of "Chernobyl" is spilled in the hot tub... and all four dudes are magically transported back in time to 1986. Dumbstruck, Adam, Lou and Nick figure that if they relive that night exactly as they did back in 86', they can get back to their regular, boring lives.    

F*ck Ya, Chernobyl!!!
As the guys start having fun in the past and some...distractions (wink wink nudge nudge) come along, the guys suddenly wonder if by some strange, magical Energy Drink power, they're being given a chance to change their lives. Wouldn't be such a bad idea, except that Jacob suddenly begins to flicker... alarmed, they realize that if they do not spend their evening exactly as they did back in the day, there's a possibility that Jacob will cease to exist!
Must be some kinda... hot tub time machine...

Hot Tub Time Machine is extremely raunchy, and is full of crude humor, colorful language, and some... interesting... subject matter. But I'll admit... I loved it! I laughed the whole way through, and I found it very amusing.   
The most vulgar things come spewing from this man's mouth.
If raunchy humor isn't your thing, I wouldn't recommend this movie. It's geared more towards 18 year old guys. But if you appreciate crude humor and sex jokes, this movie is for you. I've seen it twice, and would definitely see it again. It's a brainless comedy about alcohol, sex, and some peculiar male bonding. The ultimate raunchy adventure of 2010. 
El Capitain OUT!
Great White Buffalo....
Goooood times.....
