In the beginning, there was something kitschy about the next comedy from Accepted director Steve Pink. Titled Hot Tub Time Machine, the movie follows four friends (John Cusak, Craig Robinson, Rob Corddry and Clark Duke) who are transported back to the 80s by a hot tub at a ski resort. Yeah, kitschy, and ripe with potential.

After seeing the first trailer — which MGM debuted on Yahoo earlier today — I’m convinced that this movie will not only be kitschy and silly, but also uninspired and in many ways downright stupid. This is usually where I would explore some of the alleged humor from the trailer, but I think I will just let you drink it in for yourself below. But know this, there’s something terribly unfunny about every moment of this trailer that does not involve Craig Robinson. That does not bode well for the film.

Hot Tub Time Machine is in theaters March 19, 2010.
