Review: Hot Tub Time Machine
4.5 stars (out of 5)
By R. Kurt Osenlund

An exquisitely ridiculous high-concept romp with the most delectable title since “Snakes on a Plane,” “Hot Tub Time Machine” is one of those rude and raunchy male comedies that's refreshingly smarter than your average rude and raunchy male. Directed with party animal-meets-valedictorian verve by Steve Pink (“Accepted”), and written by the witty team of Josh Heald, Sean Anders and John Morris (who put their slightly sick heads together to concoct outrageous, yet sharply convincing bro-man banter and behavior), the movie isn't liable to land on anyone's list of classics, but it makes for one helluva fun night out without zapping your brain cells. It made me laugh heartily and often, which is more than I can say for any other comedy I've seen this year.
