Hot Tub Time Machine (2010)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
Three friends on losing streaks: Adam, whose girlfriend dumped him, Nick, with a dead-end job and a cheating wife, and Lou, a suicidal alcoholic. To help Lou recover from car-exhaust poisoning, Adam and Nick, with Adam's nephew Jacob, go to a winter resort that was their old party place. It's now a dump, but the lads rally for a night of drinking in the hot tub. Somehow, the hot tub takes them back to 1986, on a fateful night for each of them. Maybe if they do everything the same way they did that night, they'll get back to the future so Jacob can be born. There are serious temptations to do things differently. Will they make it back to their sorry lives? And what about Jacob?

More Movie Taglines:
- Jacob: [from trailer] Do I really gotta be the asshole who says we got in this thing and went back in time?
Lou: Outta my way stool
Jacob: I've dated a lot of girls, hot ones. Lou: You've dated a lot of guys, gay ones.
Lou: [to Jacob, while Lou is shocked that the former does not have ritalin] Don't fuckin' lie to me, every one of you people have ritalin.
- Craig Robinson came up with the Michael Jackson joke used on the trailer, as well as the "It must be some kind of hot tub time machine" line that he deadpans directly into the camera.
When the boys travel back in time and open their suitcases to find Adam's filled with drugs, Jacob asks "Who are you, Hunter S. Thompson?" John Cusack was actually very good friends with Hunter S. Thompson. Cusack was also considered to play Hunter S. Thompson aka Raoul Duke, in the film Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998), (before the role went to Johnny Depp), Most likely an in joke to when he replies "I thought I was."
Shipped to theaters under the title "Bulldogs".
As a fun inclusion for the fans, the light-blue Chevy pickup with the "sidestep" bed is just like the one the kids in "Red Dawn" used to escape into the woods, and "Red Dawn" is also the movie that inspires Blaine, the chief antagonist, to believe that the time travelers might actually be some kind of "21 Jump street communist spy battalion type dudes."
One of the clips shown on TV, inside the ski lodge, is a Saturday Night Live sketch by Eddie Murphy. The classic skit has Murphy looking, singing and acting just like the legendary James Brown getting into his hot tub.
