Hot Tub Time Machine

I saw an advanced screening of "Hot Tub Time Machine" last night and it was pretty funny, albeit a bit predictable. I don't need to bother with spoilers since the title pretty much explains the premise and there isn't much else. There really isn't much to this movie as far as plot goes but the thing that was so good was simply the dialogue. I felt like I related to every character in the movie in some way. I was just like the asshole character in some ways, especially waiting for the "arm thing" to happen (OK, that is a spoiler so you have to watch it). I was also a lot like the geeky character for obviously reasons. But so much of the dialogue was just the same type of shit that we talk about at our BR407 meetings or with my other friends. It was just the same kind of debates and arguments over silly things. My favorite line in the movie was an argument over what had just happened and it went something like this:

Jacob: This is scientifically possible!

Nick: Tell us how it's scientifically possible, Professor Hawking.

Jacob: I will, 'cause I write Stargate fan fiction; this is my bread and butter, man!

Nick: Oh my God, I seriously almost passed out you're such a dork.

I lolled several times in this movie. If you get a chance, I recommend it. It probably won't get the best reviews since it wasn't original or anythign special, but if you just want to see a good laugh out loud movie, go see it.

Classic B-movie potential!- cult favorite D listers, "Black guy" from the Office, Crazy weird guy from the Daily Show, and a has been B+ almost A lister Cusack combined with an outrageous plot line.

On a related note, are you relapsing back into depression Stank? Do you like this movie because you also wish to be teleported back in time? Do you wish that you had a chance to become a different Dawg? Are you crying yourself to sleep at night wishing you could reboot your life...:sad:

Oh well, I'm sure with the economy and all you can get a great deal on hot tubs.

Nope I am as happy as I have ever been. The dark cloud of 2009 has long since passed...it went back to Canada. ;)

Glad to hear on the positive outlook Stank. On a side note, if you ever feel like another few laughs - check out Cop Out.

It's been getting bad reviews all round, but it had some good laughs. Kind of a "park your brain at the door and enjoy" flick.
