    Hot Tub Time Machine should have been better than this. It could have been poignant. show more

    San Francisco Chronicle

    Most of its screenplay is far too vulgar to recount. To paraphrase Mary McCarthy, every word is an obscenity, including "and" and "the." show more

    For hilarity, characterization and clever structure, "The Hangover" is far superior. Still, there are some laughs in this uneven but good-natured raunchfest. show more

    How bad must a movie be to be good fun? How dumb to be smart? (Or, in the case of "Dumb and Dumber," how pretend-dumb to be surpassingly smart?) Whatever the case, Hot Tub Time Machine doesn't make the cut. show more

    If time and space hooked up and got so hammered that they staggered beyond inebriation into delirium, the result would be Hot Tub Time Machine. show more

    In Rob Corddry's hilariously manic turn, it has the most memorable showcase for a goofball co-star since Michael Keaton in 1981's "Night Shift." show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    A loud, disjointed and not terribly funny comedy, which probably is what one expects with a title like that. The unfortunate thing is, it didn't need to be. show more

    Admirably turns a potentially one-note joke into a consistently funny package. show more

    Michael Phillips Chicago Tribune

    Accomplishes what "Snakes on a Plane" did not: It offers a merrily idiotic movie to go with its willfully idiotic title. show more

    Why John Cusack stopped doing this kind of movie remains one of the late-20th century’s great mysteries. Teaming him with contemporary comic vanguards Corrdry and Robinson is equal parts welcome and unexpected as the three relive the social, sexual, and Soviet fears of the era. show more

    Teen aged level comedy,Should appeal to teenagers and to adults that are like teenagers. Silly, tasteless, and often gross comedy. Similar to Hangover, so if you loved Hangover you will at least like Hot tub Time Machine. Some will rate it 5 stars, others 1 star.

    I thought the movie was okay...not the best comedy ever, but fun and entertaining to watch. I didn't realize how much gross stuff they would have (i.e puking scenes, etc. yuck!)...but luckily I'm not that squeamish. The F-bomb was thrown in there ever chance they got, which I didn't mind, but I can't say the same for the friend who I saw it with. It def. bothered her a bit. Overall, fun to go watch if you have nothing to do...don't know if I would pay for it though (I saw it on free movie Tuesdays). I loved the ending!

    My wife and I almost did not see this movie- the title is so strange and it had the sound of a real looser movie that you regret seeing. We took a chance and could not stop laughing. Implauusible, crazy, stupid ridiculous plot, and funny as hell. Somehow it all worked and yes it is crude and low brow but in the same way that Harold and Kumar go to White Castle was but you will have a great time and really get your moneys worth because if you like comedy. it is genuinely hysterical. It has a sophmoric quality that makes you feel really bad that you can't stop laughing because you should if you are older, I mean the humor is so low brow- but you still just can't stop as its LOL good. I can't wait for it to come out on DVD if I don't end up seeing it again with some friends.

    I thought it was really really horrible. Trying to be like "the Hangover", which was truly funny. This movie was just stupid and obnoxious and a waste of time and money. It sucked.
