hot tub time machine - movie review

Brook Bennett, Jake Rose, Aliu Oyofo and Clark Duke

OK..its not in 3-D. That's a plus. Of course, there are times you wonder if the computer generated John Cusack's face. They did find someone to play his younger version. If only, he could have been in it longer.

See, it all boils down to some Russian drink that does something to the hot tub..and they all go back in time, 20 years ago. Even the nephew. Its really a buddy film. And well, you have the gross factor to consider because you know, guys are going to watch this.

But you've got a great cast. Cusack is even excutive producer. You have some new faces, like Charlie McDermet from THE MIDDLE and some old ones too, like Chevy Chase and Crispin Glover. And there are those who are unrecognizable.

But excellent job from Craig Robinson on the Office. He was great. I do love this big guy. Clark Duke, part of the Kick-Ass movie and better known as that religious dude on Greek was sweet too. And the comedic relief of Rob Corddry. Which I could only take so much of.

I won't say its right up there with The Hangover. But it has its moments. Silly. Naturally. And a decent soundtrack of 80s tunes.
