I haven’t seen “Hot Tub Time Machine” yet.
But it’s on my short list.
I don’t need to know the plot. I don’t need to know who’s in it (although, I’ll admit, I did accidentally see John Cusack in a poster). I don’t even care what critics are saying.
“Hot Tub Time Machine” is one of the greatest movie titles of all time. Based on that alone, I will take my chances at the theatre. It deserves to be seen.
And whether “Hot Tub Time Machine” is a good movie or not, let it be a lesson to movie makers everywhere:
The title matters.
The name of the movie alone can put butts in the seat.
“Hot Tub Time Machine” has inspired me to write — not a great movie — but a great movie title.
(I’ll worry about the rest later.)
