Saw "Hot Tub Hot Machine" over the weekend and first of all, it was awesome. Second of all, the movie was kind of weird in that it's being marketed as a raunchy, hip, adult comedy aimed primarily at people in their late teens or twenties. But the thing is it's mainly concerned with Gen X'ers and is, in some ways, a Gen X nostalgic flick-- it's a movie about three guys in their late 30's/early 40's going back to their 80's youth. In fact, the movie is very cleverly a teen flick featuring lots of drugs, rock n' roll, and boobs mainly about coming to grips with middle-age mediocrity and being beaten down by the choices that we made.

So congrats, us Gen X'ers-- we finally have our "Big Chill" but it involves a time-traveling hot tub and people doing coke while listening to Motley Crue.
