Comedy, Fantasy
A lunatic cast energizes this comic fantasy about three old pals (John Cusack, Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson) time-traveling back to the 80s. Disillusioned in middle age, they revisit a ski resort where they used to hang out and find that it's crumbling as surely as their friendship; when their hotel jacuzzi short-circuits, they're zapped back to 1986, the year their lives first started going downhill. Coming along for the ride is Cusack's whip-smart couch-potato nephew (Clark Duke), who's dismayed to learn his mother was a boozing slut with big hair. The movie sends up various period entertainments--buddy movies, the Back to the Future franchise, and the sort of teen romances that put Cusack on the map--though director Steve Pink offsets the satire with moments of genuine warmth. With Crispin Glover and Chevy Chase.
