Review Hot Tub Time Machine is the poignant story of three men, adrift in their 40s, who try to recapture the lost joys and squandered possibilities of their youth. I'm not entirely joking, though the movie itself is a nonstop barrage -- somewhere between a riot and an orgy -- of crude, obnoxious gags and riffs. If you are a connoisseur of sexual, scatological or just plain stupid humor, you will find your appetite satisfied, even glutted. But viewers of a certain age and background -- let's say those who know the lyrics to "Jessie's Girl" by heart, even if they never really liked that song -- are likely to endure the merry anarchy with a twinge of pained, slightly nauseated nostalgia...Nick, Lou and Adam, whom we first meet in the throes of early middle age, are still haunted by memories of the 1980s, when they were young and dumb and full of potential. Here in the weary present, Adam (John Cusack) has just been dumped by his live-in girlfriend, and you have the feeling that this kind of thing has happened to him many times before...Nick (Craig Robinson) has a stable if not quite happy marriage, but his job in a dog-grooming salon provides regular, humiliating reminders of the musical career he might have had. And Lou (a frighteningly manic Rob Corddry) is an alcoholic, divorced, wildly self-destructive train wreck of a man. But the movie doesn't really ask you to pity these guys; they feel sorry enough for themselves already, and their misery seems well earned in any case...Nick, Lou and Adam are miserable in 2010, but one thing that becomes clear pretty quickly is that they weren't all that happy in 1986 either. "All we had was Reagan and AIDS," Adam laments...And even if, as the movie suggests, they -- we -- had so much more, including heavy metal and not-yet-old-school hip-hop, cocaine by the bushel and spandex by the mile, it was not easy to be young. Just look at the faces of the younger selves Nick, Adam and Lou sometimes glimpse in the mirror. These guys are confused and terrified...The cultural detritus piled up everywhere, to be recycled, cherished, mocked and travestied, provides small -- but nonetheless real -- compensation for the spiritual deficits of modern life. Is it crazy to write that sentence in a review of "Hot Tub Time Machine"? Not really: the movie itself proves the point. It's fun, it's sad, and it's kind of sad that it's so much fun.

Lou Lumenick, New York Post A raunchy, endearing and often hilarious cross between "Back to the Future" and Reagan-era cheese-fests such as "Hot Dog: The Movie."
