Making the Grades

Because we only review G, PG, and PG-13 movies at Parent Previews we did not review this title. For your convenience, we have provided some brief information about the film’s synopsis and content.

Synopsis: Hot tubs have long been lauded as a great way to relax and rejuvenate. But this movie takes that idea a little further by presenting a soothing soak capable of taking its users back in time. When four pals dip their toes in this hot water (John Cusack, Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson and Clark Duke), they end up in 1986.

This is truly an NC-17 film. No one under 35 is going to get all the in-jokes depicted. After all, you need to have been at least 16 in 1986 to identify what is going on in the film.There are several funny scenes that adults 35 to 65 might enjoy. Unfortunately, there are a few scenes that are just beyond community standards and spoil the mood of the film. The ending of the film tries to remedy some of this with a happy hypothetical “what would have happened if ...” that has some redeeming qualities but this film is very much like visiting that unfamiliar and unclean public toilet you encounter on a trip. You just can’t wash your hands soon enough to get out of there. Parents do not let your teens get hold of the Unrated DVD now available.
