After, a crazy night of drinking in a ski resort hot tub, the men wake up, heads' pounding, in the year 1986.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Well played, Hot Tub Time Machine, well played. You defied expectations, in a good way, and managed to evolve from "potentially silly concept" to "fairly funny film.""
‑ Laremy Legel,
"Hugely raunchy and undeniably funny, with Cusack adding just a hint of sweetness."
‑ Rafer Guzman, Newsday
"You might not fall out of your seat laughing, but the film is consistently enjoyable from start to the very clever and amusing finish and with its brisk 93 minutes, it's worth taking a dip in this tub."
‑ Jeffrey Lyles, Lyles' Movie Files
"If the filmmakers had thrown in some variety, it might have worked, because I'm sure they were going for more than just a feeling of indifference."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"Yes, it's funny. Often really funny."
‑ Dave White,
"Admirably turns a potentially one-note joke into a consistently funny package."
‑ Ian Buckwalter, NPR
"Director Steve Pink offsets the satire with moments of genuine warmth."
‑ Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader
"What Hot Tub Time Machine critically lacks is any sense of wit in its humour. Vomit, urination, male nudity and gay panic jokes take up a large amount of the film's time."
‑ Glenn Dunks, Trespass
"Those drawn in by the name will surely get exactly what they expected and then some."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Through its slack editing and direction, Hot Tub Time Machine gives the impression of a halfhearted effort, as if the film's name and story were wacky enough that any old gag would do."
‑ Mark Pfeiffer, Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema
"No masterpiece, perhaps, but Hot Tub Time Machine is post-pub perfection."
‑ Tom Huddleston, Time Out
"Hot Tub Time Machine is funnier than any movie called Hot Tub Time Machine has a right to be. And how funny is that? Not very, but a little."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"Like most guy-centric films these days, this film is ragingly homophobic and misogynistic, and you know what? These are some of the best parts. It is a testament to the wit of the writers and the charisma of the cast that we are never turned off."
‑ Adam Ross, The Aristocrat
"It not only wears its absurdity as a badge of honor, but quite literally looks us in the eye and dares us not to laugh."
‑ Michael Nordine, Not Coming to a Theater Near You
"it has the timing and insight of a Borscht Belt comic from the 1930s."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
