5 sentence review of "Hot Tub Time Machine"

5. "Hot Tub Time Machine" is what I call a cotton candy movie.

4. Cotton candy tastes really sweet on the tongue when you're eating it, but it quickly evaporates to nothing and, in a half hour or so, you're ready for a meatier snack.

3. Cotton candy movies seem very good during the initial viewing, but you can't remember much about them even a few minutes after the movie.

2. Regarding "Hot Tub," I recall Craig Robinson being funny, Rob Corddoy being annoying and even telling my buddy I thought the movie was better than last year's over-hyped dog "The Hangover," but I couldn't defend any of those statements by quoting a joke, plot points or much of anything memorable from the movie.

1. However, I recommend "Hot Tub" and cotton candy (maybe at the same time!) because even if you don't get much out of them, they sure seem fun while they last.

  1. From the trailer, it struck me as "Back to the Future" with a hot tub instead of a DeLorean. Sounds like it could use Christopher Lloyd.
