Wendy's Films of 2010 #64: Hot Tub Time Machine (2010)

You might have heard this comparison before, but I found Hot Tub Time Machine to be akin to The Hangover. Kind of like its less impressive, but still amusing little brother. It's not nearly as funny, but it definitely has its moments. The story goes that three old friends and one nephew go to an old hangout for the weekend, wind up getting crunk in the hot tub, and wake up in 1986. The cast is appealing, and their antics (filled with hi-top fades, neon ski suits, and Mötley Crüe) are quite entertaining. There isn't too much to set this film apart, but if you like John Cusack and feel like a silly comedy, this one's a great option. It's not out quite yet, but keep an eye out for it in the coming months.
