This HOT TUB TIME MACHINE Red Band Trailer Evokes TERMINATOR, And More!!

Merrick here...
After AVATAR and before TRON LEGACY, we'll get John Cusack, Crispin Glover and Chevy Chase In HOT TUB TIME MACHINE! This is from director Steve Pink, who scripted HIGH FIDELITY and GROSSE POINT BLANK; he was also a producer on ENTOURAGE. Until Keanu & Alex get their middle-aged BILL & TED movie going (seriously and literally), perhaps this will suffice...

    Chevy Chase

    by Series7

    Has been in dire need of money lately. I think it started with the under rated Karate Dog, then Chuck and now this and that NBC show that's already been cancelled before the 4th episode airs.

    Scriptshadow review of Hot Tub

  • July 24, 2009, 3:07 p.m. CST

    Not an impressive trailer

    by YackBacker

    It seems too... cute. And two f-bombs in one sentence, Mr. Cusack? Old guy tries too hard to fit in, methinks. But let's see some more before passing judgment.

    "How'm I supposed to get a job?"

    I was hoping this would RULE - IT DOESN'T! WTF!?

    by Mennen

    This dialogue is some very UNFUNNY SHIT!

  • July 24, 2009, 3:22 p.m. CST


    by OzzyManDiaz

    This might work

  • July 24, 2009, 3:22 p.m. CST

    Not safe for work because of the 80's blow I suppose

    by iamnicksaicnsn

    And the f-bombs of course.

  • July 24, 2009, 3:23 p.m. CST

    I had high hopes.

    by Brian

    Goes to show that ON PAPER shit kicks ass. Then ON FILM shit sucks ass. Not a single word of that dialogue was funny. And I like all the players. Cusack & Craig Robinson? You could knock me over with a feather. I wasn't even hit with a feather. Not funny. Looks half baked.

    "dont u mean next February"

    by jim

    If someone said to me "next February" I would think they meant February 2011, as it is the next February after the imminent one; not this one, but the next one.

  • July 24, 2009, 3:39 p.m. CST

    Dioxholster is in this

    by dancetothebeatofthelivingdead

    Fuckin Stargate nerds!!! <br> <br> They are going to travel back in time to find Chevy Chase's sense of humor. Hope they find it, dude used to be funny as shit.

  • July 24, 2009, 3:46 p.m. CST

    by Cobra--Kai

    I believe in this movie. I believe that if these guys knew the angles and polarities they could go back in time in a hot tub.<p> However if this is the funniest footage they've cut for the trailer then this some big time booooooolshit.

  • July 24, 2009, 3:57 p.m. CST

    wtf haha

    Unfunny trailer

    by Ratphink

    Like the premise but didn't laugh once at the trailer. Also, why are a bunch of 40yr olds hangin out with this kid?

  • July 24, 2009, 4:04 p.m. CST


    by Rogue Trooper

    Why is this a red band trailer and why is it not suitable for work? Is it because someone says fuck? That's weird. Anyhoo, I like the conceit that one of the characters thinks it's a rubbish idea too. Also I'm a big Cusack fan (John and Joan).

  • July 24, 2009, 4:07 p.m. CST

    So was this Al Franken's

    by Series7

    First act as Senator? <P> Fun Fact: I went to google check my spelling of Al's name, but I had copied First Act as Senator and the first google hit was "FREE SPEECH TV: Al Franken's First Act as Senator is to Support a ..."

  • July 24, 2009, 4:19 p.m. CST

    I'd love to see Cusack in a good comedy again...

    by FlickaPoo

    ...not sure this is it, but I want my two dollars.

  • July 24, 2009, 4:20 p.m. CST

    Where'd the Blow go...?

    by TheBLIGHT

    Dude talkin 'bout Terminator with the powdered nose, then poof powder gone. Bad edit. But, Hot Tubs, Time, and John Cusack... Interesting.

  • July 24, 2009, 4:27 p.m. CST

    already better than AVATAR!!!!!

    by Blancoshadow

    This fucked my eyeballs!!!!

  • July 24, 2009, 4:32 p.m. CST

    look funny, we need more time travel comedy

    by Darth_BeerFart

    Bill and ted i suppose would be king, back to the future had its share of comedy and is still the best time travel movie ever<P>but its nice to see time travel comedy making its way back

  • July 24, 2009, 4:55 p.m. CST

    I would have expected to see a little bit of Cordry's

    by PixarsSUP

    pasty white ass considering this is a redband trailer for a movie with a Hot Tub. Instead we get some tame swearing. And before you start callin' me homo, male nudity = hilarity.

  • July 24, 2009, 6:13 p.m. CST

    The black dude did it for me. I'm watching this because of him now.

  • July 24, 2009, 6:50 p.m. CST

    Didn't Keanu dismiss the geezer Bill & Ted last year?

    by Toilet_Terror

    He said that by the time they actually got it made they'd both be too old. <p>I think it's just a bad idea, but I wouldn't be against them making another film together in the spirit of Bill & Ted.

  • July 24, 2009, 6:53 p.m. CST

    Also: I've given up watching trailers

    by Toilet_Terror

    They do nothing for me. Having to sit through them in the cinema is annoying.

  • July 24, 2009, 7:09 p.m. CST

    That shit made me laugh!

    How is this...

    by MajorFrontbum

    ...considered to be funny? It's fucking stupid. People will watch anything these days and love it.

  • July 24, 2009, 8 p.m. CST


    by Mennen

    WTF?! That's some poorly written shit. So, if we swear more, it's funnier? LAME. I'm so disappointed.

  • July 24, 2009, 8:03 p.m. CST


    by Mennen

    Sorry, still PISSED! I'm a big Cusack fan.

    Can someone tell me

    by OzzyManDiaz

    How you can say this sucked when all you saw was 2 minutes of the final 130 (estimate) minute film? The jokes werent as bad as year one, but before that film came out, I was hard pressed to find a talkbacker without Harold Ramis' cock fit snugly in their esophagus.

    GONNA GET IN THE HOT TUB! GONNA MAKE ME WET! Well, well, well...

    this one is gone.

  • July 24, 2009, 10:22 p.m. CST

    New link...

    by bunksteve

    Here you go: Also... I'll be reserving judgment until I see more than one scene of a bunch of guys standing around... but Craig made me smile. :)

  • July 24, 2009, 11:38 p.m. CST

    Anything With Craig Robinson Has Potential . . .

    by Dave I

    Obviously he's absolutely golden on The Office, but his stand up from what I've seen is pretty solid. Could be funny. Here's hoping! -Cheers

  • July 24, 2009, 11:39 p.m. CST

    Crispin Glover is a RACIST and a CREEP.

    Was that the fat kid from Superbad?

    Is it Me...

    by Sgt.Steiner

    Or does Clark Duke's voice sound a hell of lot like Michael J. Fox's? Also, Proman, you just fucked with Jingle Dale whilst he was making his lunch! Darth Vader is gonna down from the planet Vulcan and fry your brain!

    Owwwwwww! Hot tub, gonna get in the water.

  • July 25, 2009, 7:27 a.m. CST

    If you think that trailer was funny, there is no hope for you.

    by Mysterious_Volvo

  • July 25, 2009, 8:41 a.m. CST

    The only thing this trailer evokes...

    by ScriptCunt

    ... is the stinging sensation of bile creeping up the throat. Some seriously unfunny shit is afoot in that thing.

  • July 25, 2009, 9:21 a.m. CST

    trailer was removed

    by Potatino

    pretty regular occurance. Linking to stuff that gets removed before I get the chance to see it.

  • July 25, 2009, 11:04 a.m. CST

    INvokes! It INvokes Terminator... seriously and literally.

    by abysstare

    This is not just directed at Merrick-- this site BADLY needs an editor. Either that or it's contributors need some English lessons. It's really out of hand.

  • July 25, 2009, 1:30 p.m. CST

    Thanks to the Hangover

    by indyjonez100

    You're going to see all sorts of Buddy bachelor party / party movies revolving around funny happenings, who wants to bet.

    Middle-aged Bill and Ted!!

    by hst666

    The title of this film made me want to check it out and the cast and creator sound interesting, but I am really interested in a new Bill & Ted, especially if Alex Winter is involved in the writing. I am still waiting for my Idiot Box DVD collection MTV.

  • July 25, 2009, 5:22 p.m. CST

    HTTM!! its such as CRAZY idea that it HAS to be funny!!!

    The irony of grammar fascism...

    by ScriptCunt

    Evoke: to bring to mind or recollection Invoke: to summon/to put into effect At least your shrill whine had a purpose...

  • July 26, 2009, 1:51 p.m. CST


    by abysstare

    Look, I very rarely post, but the English on this site is SO bad that at a certain point, you just feel compelled to say something. It is beyond bad, and honestly, it makes the contributors look incredibly amateurish and uneducated (which I doubt it their intention). I'm not the first person to comment on this sort of thing, and when it reaches a certain level, I don't think it's an issue of people being "grammatical fascists" so much as people expecting a certain basic level of literacy from the site and its contributors. Also, I am well aware of the definitions of both evoke and invoke. The clip doesn't "evoke" the Terminator seeing as how it outright DISCUSSES the Terminator. But by bringing up the Terminator in and of itself, by specifically referring to the film, it does indeed "invoke" the film. If it was a scene that REMINDED you of the terminator, that would be evocative. Oh, and thank you for being a cunt.

  • July 26, 2009, 1:53 p.m. CST

    (which I doubt IS their intention)

    by abysstare

    Yes, that was a typo, which an editor could have corrected, thus inadvertently proving my own point. :)

  • July 26, 2009, 3:32 p.m. CST

    abysstare - AWESOME.
