Hot Tub Time Machine

Nothing could persuade them to take a dip... fresh, clean? What's that?

I think this is the most random movie, movie title and movie idea that has ever came to macrobert. But don’t tell our Operations Manger that as she is super excited to see this film. I on the other hand cannot see the how this whole film will pan out!

Hot Tub Time Machine features a group of best friends who’ve become bored with their adult lives. The film stars John Cusack, Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson and Clark Duke. So what do you do when you are bored? Why you go off to a ski resort of course and have an entertaining night drinking yourself stupid in a hot tub! However, this is no ordinary hot tub (I now sound like a M&S advert eh?) – when these group of guys wake up, heads pounding, gasping for a fry up, they find themselves in the year 1986. This is their chance to change their futures- one will find a new love life, one will learn to stand up for himself, one will find his mojo…and one will make sure he still exists.

Sorry folks I can’t say I remember what it was like in 1986 as I wasn’t even born yet! I’m a 90s girl at heart; all shell suits, crop tops and stone wash jeans.  But I’m guessing this weekend is a chance for you to don your legwarmers, perm your hair and chuck on your leather jacket while Madonna blares in the background! Come re-live your youth at the macrobert this weekend with lots of laughs as well when you come to see Hot Tub Time Machine. It’s an easy going film, and one which allows you to enjoy gross out comedy, buddy bonding and time travel adventures! Look out for our Operations Manager at the showings – although hopefully not dressed like Madonna, Elton John, Freddie Mercury, David Bowie, Cyndi Lauper… you get the idea! Although please feel free to come dressed up to the macrobert! We don’t do it enough!

    That’s the last time I’m so honest about my guilty pleasures in the ops meetings!

    I enjoy a good mix of films and wouldn’t say that chick flicks and Hot Tub type comedys are up there on my must see lists but something about this film has me intrigued and I am looking forward to seeing it I admit. I am proud to be an 80’s baby (Calvin Harris eat your heart out), I grew up listening to my older sister’s 80’s tunes and love an old style maddonna or Cyndi Lauper hit so maybe that’s why, maybe it’s the Back to the Future reference on the poster or maybe it’s because I once sold the lovely Mr Cusack a cuppa. Whichever, I hope this film lives up to my expectations – especially now you all know I’ll be watching!
