It might seem easy to move right past a movie with this title like this, but the fact that it involves John Cusack - who's usually pretty smart in selecting projects - should say something.
Though it surely has raunchy-silly content, it also has more on its mind as Cusack, Craig Robinson ("The Office") and Rob Corddry play pals literally transported back to the 1980s by a very special hot tub. Once there, they have chances to change the paths their lives will take. Chevy Chase, Crispin Glover ("Back to the Future") and Lizzy Caplan also appear. DVD extras: theatrical trailer; deleted scenes. *** (R and unrated versions: AS, N, P)
