Hot Tub Time Machine was a comedy-romp released nationwide on March 26, 2010, starring John Cusack. The premise of the movie is easy to describe because you can just imagine "Back to the Future" with its awesome flying DeLorean replaced by a hot tub time machine. Then remove the flux capacitor, insert a hot tub time machine. And instead of a gripping, memorable title like "Back to the Future," it was "Hot Tub Time Machine." Instead of Chuck Berry's cousin Marvin, this movie had Poison.
Regardless, legendary movie critic Roger Ebert gave the movie three stars, saying, "the bottom line is, gross-out guy comedies open twice a month, and many of them are wretched excesses. Hot Tub Time Machine, which wants nothing more than to be a screwball farce, succeeds beyond any expectations suggested by the title."
After the release of the movie, two cast members appeared as RAW guest hosts on March 29, 2010, which was best known as the night after WrestleMania XXVI when Shawn Michaels delivered his farewell address.
Additionally, Chad MacDonald appeared in the film with Unskinny Bop, a Poison tribute act that John Cusack hired to fill the role of Poison after professional actors were unable to portray the band's flamboyant performances in concert.
