It's silly, stupid, fun - kind of like the old National Lampoon movies (the Chevy Chase ones, not the awful contemporary interpretation of NL). It would be fun to watch while sitting around with a few beers with old friends who remember the time period also. A drinking game or two wouldn't hurt either. For once I didn't regret paying for a money before it came out on HBO or Showtime.
I really appreciated the acting too, and the writing was a rare treat for a twenty-first century comedy.
It has foul language, gratuitous nudity, and sex references. So, if any of that is a problem, then put it back and walk away.
The storyline breaks no new ground and I didn't expect it to.
Three friends who have drifted apart (and one nephew) accidentally go back in time, have to relive events from their past, learn important life lessons and come out better off in the end. Simple and mindless. But we are not looking for serious here.
The soundtrack and references to the 80's will be a kick for anyone that can remember the references. There are several one liner references to old Cusak movies ("I want my two dollars") and a few other icon 80s films, but they are very easy to miss if you aren't listening for them.
Site gags are predictable but funny, the acting is surprisingly good for such a low end film, and you have some fun comparisons thrown in like reminding you that not all that long ago, having a cell phone was a big deal.
You will be able to sit back, relazx and simply enjoy with no need to think too deeply. Far better (I think) than the Hangover.
You will probably appreciate this movie a whole lot more if you lived through the 80s, I especially loved the soundtrack-very nostalgic. Do not let the kids watch this one. The Comedy Central version has to bleep out pretty much everything Corddry says.
I bought this, and the sequel; I love a-l-l time travel movies, except one called TIME LAPSE.
Time Travel Movies seem to---like SUPERMAN movies---always have someone you HATE.
"Back To The Future" had Biff Tannen, t-h-i-s movie---like "BTTF"---has Crispen Glover and,
someone you hate named "Lou".

Disappointing because the first was soooo good. No wonder John Cusack passed on-the-go sequel.Published 3 days ago by loverra di giustino
I loved this movie. I don't laugh out loud easily, but this movie had me laughing quite a few times. Great writing!!Published 12 days ago by G. Laurence
Pretty light comedy that wraps the 80s in a bow. If you don't know/care much about the 80s then there probably isn't enough comedy/plot to make you enjoy it.Published 14 days ago by PitifulScrub
Sometimes the movies I want to watch are only available for purchase and not for rent. This movie was available to rent and that was cool.Published 24 days ago by Amazon Customer
