Yeah, I'm gonna have to see that. It looks funny, and just a plain old good time.
It's almost as if John Cusack is revisiting his character Lane Meyer from 1985's Better Off Dead, going back to the ski resort.
I was surprised to read that Cusack hated Better Off Dead
, and told the director “You know, you tricked me. Better Off Dead was the worst thing I have ever seen. I will never trust you as a director ever again, so don’t speak to me.”
It broke director Savage Steve Holland's heart (also of One Crazy Summer starring Cusack) and made him not care about movies anymore.
Cusack; “The director wanted to do absurdist comedy and that’s just not the thing I like to do.”
I guess Cusack thought he was above the material. Cusack is said not to ever talk about Better Off Dead or One Crazy Summer, even though those films played a big part in introducing Cusack to the world.
I'm going to assume, hopefully, that he's wised up and gotten over himself - since he is starring in a movie about a "Hot Tub Time Machine", since that's a premise about as absurd as they come.
