Time machines are popular devices in science fiction, and now a buddy comedy is using a hot tub time machine. When I was forwarded the link for the trailer I thought at first it was a joke.
But Hot Tub Time Machine is a legitimate film, directed by Steve Pink (Speechless, Accepted) . The cast is a bit surprising,
including John Cusack (2012), Rob Corddry (Children's Hospital), Craig Robinson (The Office), Clark Duke (Greek, Kick-Ass) and Lizzy Caplan (True Blood). I used to associate John Cusack with smarter films, even his comedies, but this looks disturbing like Wild Hogs and Old Dogs. There's even a Wild Hogs reference in the trailer!
With a Snakes on a Plane-type title, Hot Tub Time Machine doesn't bother trying to dress itself up as anything other than what it is. Although I find the yellow lights in the hottub a bit disturbing, but hey, it's a buddy comedy.
Check out the trailer after the jump.
Hot Tub Time Machine is scheduled for release on March 19, 2010.
