Paradox: The Time Travel Podcast

Authors Nick Hurwitch and Phil Hornshaw dive through the wormhole of your favorite time travel movies, TV shows and stories to attempt to make sense of timelines, time machines and paradoxes.


Episode 25: ‘Hot Tub Time Machine’

Finally, we’ve come to the smoking-hot group of middle-aged friends reliving their cocaine-fueled glory days in an ’80s comedy of time travel that is “Hot Tub Time Machine.”

There aren’t a ton of time travel comedies out there, but “Hot Tub Time Machine” manages to be pretty funny, when it isn’t being a little overly sexist and very 2010. Still, a few great time travel and 1980s comedy gags thanks to the very solid casting of Crispin Glover.
Turns out, “Hot Tub Time Machine” has a lot in common with “Back to the Future,” in that it has some pretty sad and weird implications about traveling back in time, changing everything about your life, and then returning to the present to a life you don’t recognize with people in your life you’ve never met before. Hilarious!
