The title gave the totality of the movie that the characters will be turn back in time since it has Time Machine and using the Hot Tub to be exact. The question is how the Hot Tub became a Time Machine. Well that’s the tricky part since the place where the Hot Tub is really old since three of the main characters used to go to place when they are still in high school, an old guy that looks like a maintenance on the place who also keeps the Time Machine working.
The characters became failures of their own lives. A totally different John Cusack I believe. Because of their great despair they planned to go back on the place they use to hang-out when one of them tried to kill himself. Together with Adam’s nephew, Jacob they went back and get drunk while in the Hot Tub. In this scene it makes me wanna get drunk also and have a party. All of them shows the real effect of being drunk and everything get wild. Then they woke up and they’re back in 80’s where they’re still in highschool and Jacob not yet been born. Twist of everything starts here. How will they make it back to the real time their minds are set and what they’ll gonna do on 80’s. Do something different or do all over again on what happened on them on that era.
Afro, coloful shirts, open tops and skinny jeans with spraynet hair on the scene of 80’s never failed to show audience that they are indeed in 80’s even the songs played, fantastic! Poison also performs in the event where the characters are dealing with their own issues.
Plot is a little bit crazy with too many issues that need to be resolve but this movie indeed a funny one. Wait until you’re in the end.
