Hot Tub Time Machine trailer, you guys (NSFW language, headphones UP):

Right. Yes. Hot Tub Time Machine. An adult comedy about a hot tub…that is a time machine. Got it. I appreciate Hollywood’s not beating around the bush on this one. The old Snakes on a Plane approach. I have had it with these monkey-fighting time machines in this Monday to Friday hot tub!

But as you may recall, when Snakes on a Plane was announced, the Internet did what the Internet does best: went crazy in a really stupid way. “The title inspired bloggers to create songs, apparel, pages of fan fiction, parody films, mock movie trailers, and even short film parody competitions” (via), and general foaming at the collective nerd mouth. And of course there was the fan made poster. Classic. Surely a movie with the name Hot Tub Time Machine deserves at least some of this e-Bonkers.

Ugh. Fine. As usual, Internet, I will do your work for you. Presenting the Hot Tub Time Machine fan-made poster.

  1. Wait — am I allowed to think this looks cool? Because anything with Craig Robinson, John Cusack and Rob Corddry in it looks cool to me. Help me untangle the Videogum snark code!

    • This looks funny.

      • Whew.

        *goes back to writing fanfiction where the hot tub takes the guys into the Stargate universe and they party with MacGyver*

        • Remember that episode of Stargate SG-1 where they turned the Stargate sideways and used the event horizon like a hot tub and Colonel O’Neill was giving Teal’c a bath, but O’Neill got wetter than he did?

      • I feel like this place is starting to turn into one of those scenes in shitty cop movies where the undercover hero is trying to integrate himself into the criminal organization that he’s trying to bring down. And then there’s that one moment when he says something vaguely dumb or offensive in front of everyone, and there’s five seconds of awkward silence where all the thugs looks back and forth between the hero and the boss, waiting to see whether they should accept the new guy or tear him up. Then the boss starts chortling, and soon, the whole gang is howling with laughter.

        • That, or the scene in Eurotrip when the kids stumble into the soccer hooligan pub and nervously start singing “My Baby Takes the Morning Train” as the Manchester United song. Which I guess makes Gabe Vinnie Jones, depending on whether he can open beer bottles with just his eye sockets.

      • I’m a little upset, Gabe, that the name of this post wasn’t “WHEN is Hot Tub Tim Machine’s Fan Made Poster?” because I expect you to always make these “WHEN” Lost jokes Gabe. It’s what the fans are screaming for!

    • i love this movie already. it’s like “bill and ted’s excellent adventure” (which i love. so let the down-thumbing begin!!!) along with a really talented cast. granted, the cast seems so disparate in their approaches to comedy that it could end up being a really disappointing nightmare. but at least it’s not another movie with seth rogen & jonah hill, or ben stiller & vince vaughn, etc.

  2. This movie looks like the best (no, really).
    They had me at stargate fanfiction.

  3. I agree, Craig Robinson had me lots-of-love-ing.

  4. At the very least, it’ll be a step up for Cusack from War, Inc..

  5. Yeah, way more excited than I should be about this. Also, did anyone see the web series the Stargate kid made with Michael Cera? It was kinda okay!

    I’m just excited to see Janet from Three’s Company getting back out there again

  7. this movie could be 90% how these 4 got in the hot tub together and future me would be all “Well, Jessica, the reason you can’t go to college is bc daddy had to go see Hot Tub Time Machine for the 54th time in theaters.”

  8. This looks TBS very funny.

  9. Robes? Where we’re going we don’t need robes.

  10. Yay! I hope Cusack travels back to his Better Off Dead/One Crazy Summer period of funny.

    • If we’re lucky he’ll go back in time and eradicate all his movies from “America’s Sweethearts” to now. And bring back Lloyd Dobler.

    Can I venture that Greek (the show the kid in this movie is on) is actually pretty good and is a nice teen-alternative to the vapidness and humorlessness of Gossip Girl?

  12. Gabe, why have you not pointed out the lack of COKE FACE CONTINUITY? Can’t you be both Professor Shirts and Professor Powder Nose? Do they not want to give you tenure?

  13. Good lord.

  14. I hope they get in and commit some TIME CRIMES.

  15. I think this looks like it will either be funny or not.

  16. I’m glad to finally find out who they cast when Jonah Hill is not available.

  17. “adult comedy” is that like “adult videos” or “adult language”

  18. The poster looks so much better than the movie.

  19. Gabe, you posted something about Time Travel with no reference to killing Hitler! I don’t know if I should be impressed or a teeny bit sad.

    I also capitalized time travel for some reason, but I think I’m just going to let it ride. Look out world!

  20. That little fat kid looks like Rainn Wilson, if Rainn Wilson was fat.

  21. i’m excited about 2010: year of the time travel movie

    The likelihood of these four people being friends in real life: 1,000,000 to 1

  23. I presume that this film is being billed as some kinda antidote to sappy/incomprehensible time-travel films. Apt, then, that the trailer is released mere days after Gabe’s WMOAT of “The Lake House”. Nice timing, guys!

  24. if they were in the hot tub when they time traveled, why are they all fully clothed and dry?

    • Well, that’s why you gotta see the movie!!!

      “Why are these men clothed and dry if they just rode the… HOT TUB TIME MACHINE, 2011″

  25. This apparently is the plot of an episode of Harvey Birdman. Someone alert the fun police!

  26. I wanted to see this movie before I knew what it was about since Lizzy Caplan is going to be in it. Hopefully she’ll play a hot 80′s chick.

    The Road! Yay Gabe!… Hot Tub could be the next Gymkata?
