Hot Tub Time Machine

Synopsis: 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?

Turn it up!

Turn up the radio

I need the music

Give me some more

Come on, Boots,

you have three minutes left.

You can do this.

You came to me, remember?

It's not about losing weight.

It's about a lifestyle change.

Nick, you have a customer.

Like we practiced.

Right away, Terry.

'Sup, dawg?

Oh. Ha! Funny.

- It's the name of the store.

- What can I do for you, man?

Bono has been doing this for three days.

It's f*cking disgusting.

- Bring him up here.

- Bono, Bono, come.

- Bono, up!

- Don't yell at him like that.

Okay. Okay. Cool. You're gonna...

I might just look...

Do I know you?

I know you.

You're the singer from Chocolate Lipstick.

You guys used to play

at the Jam Shack on Friday nights.

- Damn! You remember that?

- You were so good. Yeah.

Oh, my God, you still singing?

Nah. That was a long time ago.

Wow! What are you doing now?

You get shit out of dogs' asses.

That's great.

You own a BMW?

Yeah, can you tell?

Good boy.

Adam, it's Lou. Don't hang up, okay?

It's not about money.

It's about making money.

You and me, buddy.

Hi, it's me.

So, I did everything according

to your stupid f*cking plan.

I took everything with the yellow stickers

and I left you

everything with the red stickers.

There was some stuff in your closet

with no stickers,

so I threw that in a pile

and burned it in the backyard.

Seemed like the right thing to do.

And thank you for claiming

that empty plastic bottle.

I was prepared to fight you on that one.

Anyway, I left you something

on the counter.

It's from the heart.

Oh, and one last thing. Um...

The TVhad a red sticker on it,

but I took it anyway.

Bye.

Just keeping my head down.

Not getting shivved today.

Let's knock these reps out. Mmm! Mmm!

Turn on a light, Jake. Open a window.

Go outdoors. Jesus Christ!

Why don't you get out of

the house this weekend, huh?

What should I do out of the house,

Uncle Adam?

I don't know.

Anything that corresponds with reality.

Apply for a job.

Maybe try to go to college.

I don't know.

That all sounds kind of overrated.

You don't like it,

you can move back in with your mom.

No, I can't actually.

She moved in with her new boyfriend.

I will not be anywhere near that.

She moved in with him?

Yeah, the taxidermist.

- The taxidermist is stuffing my mother.

- Kelly.

She's your sister. You should call her

once in a while. Check in.

Well, maybe she should check in with me.

Ever think of that?

Yeah. That's interesting.

Listen, I've got a big court date

in a few minutes.

- If I miss it, I'm kind of screwed.

- Why do you waste your time

with that Second Life bullshit?

Look at you, you're still in jail.

You were in jail last week.

Yeah. I'm a prisoner.

It's called "doing hard time."

Can't you be like a warrior or a shaman

or an Orc or some shit like that?

No, no. In life, you make choices,

and if you screw up

you have to pay for those choices.

You're 20 years old, you haven't

made an important choice in your life.

What are you mad about? What is this?

I don't know if you noticed,

but Lily moved out.

Is that what all the shuffling was?

Uh-huh.

What did you do?

I didn't do anything.

No f*cking way!

You know I'm a dreamer

But my heart's of gold

I had to run away high

So I wouldn't come home low

Just when things went...

... song

And you'll never be left all alone

I'm on my way

I'm on my way

Home sweet home

Tonight, tonight

I'm on my way

Home sweet home

Even among the gentle prairie squirrels,

the mate-less male

is subjected to a humiliating ritual.

Hello.

What?

F*ck!

Hey. Adam.
