John Cusack's new movie, Hot Tub Time Machine, is making a splash in the Vancouver film industry. At first, it was simply a working title, however, fans around the internet are praising it for its quirky and nerdy science-comedy value.
According to Variety, the story involves a group of friends who return to a ski lodge where they enjoyed partying as teens who then get frustrated about their current lives. When they get into a hot tub—that just also happens to be a time machine—they are transported back to 1987.
The location on Mount Seymour is so popular that they have a Twitter account setup on behalf of the lodge, which has been posting updates throughout the production (@movie_cabin).
Tweets over the past month included: "Still filming up here around the base of mystery ski lift, many of the extras have been here for 12 hrs +, many of them wearing heat packs," and "Several folks have noted that John Cusack is well liked by the mountain staff and a pleasant lad to chat with."
