The Bubble Bath Boys.
I guess when push comes to shove, it is what it is and achieves its aims by pleasing the intended target audience.
Plot finds 40-something pals John Cusack, Craig Robinson and Rob Corddry stuck in ruts and magically transported back to 1986 courtesy of a hot tub. So basically the guys, still in their 40 something bodies get to relive 86 knowing what they know already, if you get my meaning?
What follows is a load of raucous behaviour, man child histrionics and crudeness as the mid-life crisis’ come thundering out in a wave of bad hair, iconic 80s dudes and teen angst. The laughs are plenty, if a touch juvenile, and there is at least an air of regressive reflection trying to make its point amongst the testosterone.
It does a job, just. 6/10
