Storyline
Three friends on losing streaks: Adam, whose girlfriend dumped him, Nick, with a dead-end job and a cheating wife, and Lou, a suicidal alcoholic. To help Lou recover from car-exhaust poisoning, Adam and Nick, with Adam's nephew Jacob, go to a winter resort that was their old party place. It's now a dump, but the lads rally for a night of drinking in the hot tub. Somehow, the hot tub takes them back to 1986, on a fateful night for each of them. Maybe if they do everything the same way they did that night, they'll get back to the future so Jacob can be born. There are serious temptations to do things differently. Will they make it back to their sorry lives? And what about Jacob?

User Review

Unexpectedly Hilarious

Rating: 8/10


I went to a screening of this film and didn't expect very much out of
it. However, this is probably one of the funniest movies I've seen in a
while. I laughed almost the entire length of the movie, which is
something that hasn't happened in a long time. The movie is extremely
well-written. John Cusack really carries the movie with a great
performance. Chevy Chase really doesn't do much of anything. Comedy was
sort of in the vein of "The 40 Year Old Virgin." The film doesn't take
itself seriously at all, which is part of the fun. It doesn't really
get bogged down too much in the science of time travel, and focuses
mostly on these four guys trying to get the hell out of 1986. A great
watch. Very entertaining. Highly recommended.
