HOT TUB TIME MACHINE is a comedy about three men who are transported back to 1986, where they are given the chance to relive their wild pasts and change their disappointing futures.

Language

There are numerous uses of strong language ('f**k').

Sex

Crude sex references occur throughout the film, in both verbal and visual form. These include scenes featuring female nudity and brief sexual activity as well as a sequence in which a male character pretends to have semen on his face in order to fool his friend into thinking he has performed oral sex on him.

Drugs

Scenes of drug use depict characters smoking hash, eating hallucinogenic mushrooms and the implied snorting of cocaine. The adult characters who indulge in drugs do so in a rather pathetic manner because they are depressed and unable to cope, rather than appearing as glamorous figures. As a counterbalance to their activities, a teenage character who accompanies them is constantly upbraiding his elders for their behaviour and warning of its dangers.

Other issues include scenes of moderate comic violence and gore.
