Friends Adam (Cusack), Lou (Corddry), and Nick (Robinson), along with Adam's nephew Jacob, take a trip to a ski resort where Adam, Lou and Nick used to hang out to relive good times after Lou attempts suicide. However, while getting drunk in a hot tub, Lou spills some Chernobly (a type of Russian Red Bull) onto the hot tub controls, turning it into a time machine. The hot tub sends the four back to 1986, where Adam, Lou and Nick have regained their youth and replaced their 1986 selves. (Jacob, for some reason, is not a zygote. This goes unexplained, though he occasionally goes static like a television image with poor reception.)

A 2010 film directed by Steve Pink (the guy who did ''Film/{{Accepted}}''). Three friends (Adam, Lou and Nick), and Adam's nephew Jacob take a trip to a ski resort where Adam, Lou and Nick used to hang out to relive good times after Lou attempts suicide. However, while getting drunk in a hot tub, Lou spills some Chernobly (a type of Russian Red Bull) onto the hot tub controls, turning it into a time machine.

This goes unexplained, though he occasionally goes static like a television image with poor reception.)

A hot-tub repairman (played by Chevy Chase), who may or may not be MrExposition, occasionally drops by to have {{Cryptic Conversation}}s about how to return to 2010 and the consequences of changing the past. This, however, doesn't stop the three from trying, much to the dismay of Jacob, who feels that their actions may put his very existence in jeopardy via the ButterflyEffect.

* MsFanservice: Tara (the busty groupie that Nick hooks up with) and Zoe (the girl who "only does two at a time"). Both women have very small roles, yet both appear topless.

* MsFanservice: Tara (the busty groupie that Nick hooks up with) and Zoe (the girl who "only does two at a time"). Both women have very small roles, yet both appear topless. One of the red band trailers for the film consisted solely of alternate topless footage of Tara bouncing up and down in the tub.
