Hot Tub Time Machine

release year: 2010
genre: comedy
viewing setting: home DVD, 5/17/10

synopsis: A group of friends finds themselves catapulted back to 1986, where they have a chance to re-live some key events in their lives.

impressions: It's silly (forget about the science involved) but very entertaining (crude humor of every kind.) If you're easily offended, skip this. If you liked American Pie, Role Models, and so on, you should see this one.

something this movie has that no other movie has: A squirrel that gets puked on and then runs around.

acting: John Cusack, Craig Robinson, and Rob Corddry are the three buddies; Clark Duke is a cousin who also goes back. Chevy Chase is a mysterious maintenance man.

final word: Raunchy but highly entertaining comedy.
