I’m not saying that I’m definitely not gonna see a movie called Hot Tub Time Machine — I enjoy a “high-concept male comedy” from time to time. I’m saying that unless I decide to relive my college days (when my friends and I would see who could order Moons Over My Hammy at Denny’s without laughing), I’ll be purchasing my ticket at a kiosk.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sean Anders and John Morris, the gents who brought you Sex Drive, are in talks to direct the film. The story, the trade says, “revolves around a group of adult male friends who, bored with their lives, visit a hot tub where they once partied. After knocking a few back, they find it can transport them to a time two decades earlier and to their younger, raunchier selves.” Magic hot tub. Wow. Really? Okay…
Obviously, the picture accompanying this post isn’t from the movie. (It’s what my editor got when he asked for a photo of “a stud in a tub with some babes.”) So don’t let that image affect your answer to this very important question: Can you bring yourself to see something called Hot Tub Time Machine?
