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

I'll go, it's a comedy, it'll be dumb and funny. And it was dumb. But it wasn't that funny yet.

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."

Those of a certain age will find this an enjoyable blast back to the past.

An irreverent, guilty pleasure, frat boy comedy, it blows a big fat raspberry at sci-fi fans and tells them to stick their Flux Capacitors where the sun don't shine.

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

Gross, silly, stupid - yet this 80s time-travel comedy is surprisingly funny...

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.

It's passably funny in spasms, but in the end the outright vulgarity palls and you wonder what the two leading ladies in the cast, Collette Wolfe and Lizzy Caplan, thought of it all. Not much, I'd say.

It should be difficult to make a 90-minute movie completely devoid of any redeemable qualities, but the filmmakers here might have succeeded.

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.
