Theater Thursday

It's Thursday and here at Crazy Shenanigans that can only mean one thing... it's Theater Thursday. Each week I pick out a movie I've seen and review it. Usually it's something available on dvd so everyone has a way to watch it. This week's featured movie is a recent hit, Hot Tub Time Machine
Hot Tub Time Machine stars John Cusack as Adam, a self absorbed man who doesn't have anytime for his friends and his love life has went into the toilet. Him, his nephew Jacob (Clark Duke) and two of his life long friends, Lou (Rob Corddry) and Nick (Craig Robinson) head up to a Kodiak Valley ski resort to reconnect. Since Lou just tried to commit suicide they decided to relive some of their best 1980's weekends. 

When they get to the ski resort it's run down and nothing like their glory days of the 80's. All the guys decide to spend the evening in their room's outdoor hot tub and get drunk. When they wake the next morning all seems right until they realize that everyone is acting odd. Everyone is wearing 80's neon and MTV is actually playing music videos. When Nick asks a woman, What color Michael Jackson is and she responds with black. He screams. Something is up! The guys are freaking out and head back to the room. 

That's when they realize they got into a.... HOT TUB TIME MACHINE! 

They realize that they are reliving a weekend from 1986 and that to everyone else they look just like themselves back then. They set out to make the day the same but with a few changes that could change their present world. 

If you've never seen this movie, it's funny and entertaining. They even call themselves out for saying that they travel back in time via a hot tub. Give it a shot! It's a funny movie and very entertaining.
