Surprisingly "Hot Tub Time Machine" Not Porn

I’m going to be 100% honest here. When I read someone named Steve Pink was directing a movie called “Hot Tub Time Machine” I got a little suspicious. But much to my surprise and disappointment this movie is not a porn, not even soft core. Even more surprising is that as of yesterday John Cusack, Rob Corddry and Craig Robinson have all signed on to act in it. Cusack will play the lead in the film about a group of frustrated friends who hit a hot tub at the ski resort where they partied as teens. One thing leads to another and they are transported back to 1987. It’s an age old story. Steve Pink, which apparently is not a porn name, has previously directed Cusack in both “Pointe Blank” and “High Fidelity”. Josh Heald who's previous work includes an uncredited role in "Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay" is currently working on a script. So there is that. The project is currently set for a 2010 release... No pun intended.

I think a lot of people would have written this film off as another “Dude, Where’s My Car” but with Cusack taking on both the lead and producer role I think we have some hope here. Not to mention Corddry’s work on “The Daily Show” and Robinson’s on “The Office.” Could we be looking at the next “Better Off Dead”? God I hope so.
