Review
3 middle-aged men, losers to a tee, and a nerdish nephew, make a nostalgia trip to a now rundown ski-resort where they spent happier and more optimistic youthful moments. After an accident involving a Russian energy drink and a jacuzzi they find themselves transported back to the 1980s in this likeable time-travel comedy. Can they alter things to ensure that their lives don`t turn out so badly? And can they do this without aborting the as yet unborn nephew?
This sticks closely to the laddish loud mouthed drinking men with dodgy attitudes towards women template exhibited in `Hangover`, but in this case less as a celebration than as an indictment. The 80s too are engagingly recreated as a time not to be celebrated.
A very watchable comedy.
