Three friends on losing streaks: Adam, whose girlfriend dumped him, Nick, with a dead-end job and a cheating wife, and Lou, a suicidal alcoholic. To help Lou recover from car-exhaust poisoning, Adam and Nick, with Adam's nephew Jacob, go to a winter resort that was their old party place. It's now a dump, but the lads rally for a night of drinking in the hot tub. Somehow, the hot tub takes them back to 1986, on a fateful night for each of them. Maybe if they do everything the same way they did that night, they'll get back to the future so Jacob can be born. There are serious temptations to do things differently. Will they make it back to their sorry lives? And what about Jacob?Written by

When Adam is writing poetry in the room after the breakup, he is listening to "I Just Died In Your Arms tonight" by the Cutting Crew. This song wasn't released in the U.S. until the spring of 1987. See more »

Oh, wow, good for you.
[Eyes closed, crying]
I know, right?
It's like Gary Coleman's fucking forearm. It's so black, so impossibly black. Oh God, I love you buddy.
Don't say that!
I'm sorry, I do!

The end credits start out as one of the main characters' alternative histories, showing real crew names over a flashy 1980s music video. See more »
The unrated version is longer by 1 minute and 40 seconds. See more »
The main trouble with this movie is that the director subscribes to the belief that swearing is funny all by itself. That if you just go "FK", people will laugh.
Well, maybe some do, if you're one of these, you'll probably LOVE this movie. If not then you may not make it through the first 20 mins. In fact, it's hard to like any of the characters on first impressions - they're either obnoxious, or losers, or both!
But once it gets going, it improves quite a bit - there's some good interplay between the guys and a number of decent jokes - not really enough though - the concept is great and they could have achieved far more with it. And there's far too much pointless profanity.
