Hot Tub Time Machine

PhotobucketPhotobucketMindless comedy about a group of friends that time travel back to 1986 to the glory days of their teen years.  A strictly hit and miss affair.  Your enjoyment of this will depend on whether you feel most of the jokes work or fall flat.  I side with the latter.  It doesn’t help that many of the gags involve bodily fluids and are of the gross-out variety.  Perhaps it would have helped if the main characters could have shown a little more humanity.  Actor Rob Corddry, as their buddy Lou, spends most of the movie, happily excited to see a guy lose his arm.  He is so sleazy, it’s unclear why he even has friends.  There are several laugh out loud gags (starting with that title) that do hint at what the movie could have been.  But the film has such a grimy, low budget quality, it actually makes the viewer feel physically dirty.  I suppose that’s an accomplishment in itself.
