There are those who will laugh at a good projectile vomit gag, and then there are those who do not believe there is such a thing as a good projectile vomit gag. Which side of that divide you fall on should be a fair indicator of whether or not you’ll enjoy Hot Tub Time Machine, which manages to include gags involving just about every bodily fluid and function imaginable. As for plot, there’s a hot tub, and it’s a time machine. Old friends Adam (John Cusack), Nick (Craig Robinson) and Lou (Rob Courdry), along with Adam’s nephew Jacob (Clark Duke), get into the hot tub and wind up inadvertently transported back to 1986. Once in the past, the characters encounter a standard “snobs vs. slobs” conflict. There's lots of alcohol and drug use and a hearty helping of sex and nudity. It’s like a cross between Back to the Future and Hot Dog… The Movie. The talent and likeability of the cast helps a lot, and you get the feeling the filmmakers have a genuine love for the much maligned genre of '80s teen sex comedies. ***
