Consensus: Its flagrantly silly script -- and immensely likable cast -- make up for most of its flaws.

It may be a generational gap that turned me off, but I thought it was all quite ridiculous and the dialogue worse than coarse. Trust me and not those in their 30s. It is not worth your time.

No masterpiece, perhaps, but Hot Tub Time Machine is post-pub perfection.

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.

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."

Rafer Guzman

Hugely raunchy and undeniably funny, with Cusack adding just a hint of sweetness.

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.

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

Director Steve Pink offsets the satire with moments of genuine warmth.

The Aristocrat

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.

With such a fantastic title, one would have hoped for an inventive script filled with wit and one liners. Sad to say, there's way too little in the wit… More

Was this film necessary? I think not -- unless you're a child of the 1980s who never matured emotionally. Awful acting and a worse script. The costumes… More

This is a silly plot. Middle aged men go back in time via a hot tub. Back to the 80s where they have to relive it all before getting back to reality.
