Don't drink and tub unless you want to end up in the 1980s is the lesson learned in this gross-out comedy. A group of 40-ish dudes (John Cusack, Craig Robinson, Rob Corddry and Clark Duke) decide to visit the once-happening ski resort town where they misspent their youth. After a drunken night in the hotel's hot tub, this gang of losers somehow winds up in 1986 and is forced to relive the day exactly as they did before for fear of creating a "butterfly effect." It's when they start to veer from this course that things get screwy. The film is a hopeful mixture of Groundhog Day and Back to the Future, but ultimately the better parts of the script and the actors’ sharp comedic timing is overshadowed by lowbrow antics that are far too overplayed.
