The trailer for Hot Tub Time Machine, starring John Cusack, Craig Robinson, Rob Corddry, and Clark Duke, just came online and boy is it awful. I’m trying to take solace in Steve’s report on the red-band trailer he saw at AFM because this green-band version is the kind of that could kill any interest in the movie. The intro is terrible, the jokes are unfunny (the one about inventing a combination of Twitter and Viagra was painful), and the only glimmer of hope was Craig Robinson being his typical amazing self.
My hope is that the film is so raunchy that they just can’t do a good green-band trailer (although that didn’t stop The Hangover) and a red-band trailer will rekindle the interest that this trailer will most likely kill.
If you’re now curious to see this train wreck of advertising (along with a brief synopsis), hit the jump. Hot Tub Time Machine hits theaters on March 19, 2010.

For those just tuning in, here’s a brief synopsis:
A group of best friends have become bored with their adult lives: Adam has been dumped by his girlfriend; Lou is a party guy who can’t find the party; Nick’s wife controls his every move; and video game-obsessed Jacob won’t leave his basement. After a crazy night of drinking in a ski resort hot tub, the men wake up, heads pounding, in the year 1986. This is their chance to kick some past and change their futures – one will find a new love life, one will learn to stand up for himself with the ladies, one will find his mojo, and one will make sure he still exists!
