HOT TUB TIME MACHINE
[Editor’s Note: Meghan’s friend Panda, whom viewers of their live improv comedy show The The Ding Wrong Show (available on YouTube) met long ago and who introduced herself to readers of this website a while back, was pleased with the feedback she received for her first-ever movie review for the website you are now reading that–
“Ever. Don’t forget to put ‘ever,’ Mark.”
“Panda, I wrote that. Your ‘first-ever’ review for MeghaZine appeared last month. People read what you had to say. I can even show you how many times people read it, if you want to see.”
“So this one will be my second-ever?”
“Yes, the one and only time you’ve written a second review for Meghan’s website.”
“My first-ever second-ever review. Put that.” She returned her attention to her bamboo frappé. (I didn’t know Starbucks had them, either.)
–Panda was so pleased with the feedback she received for her first-EVER movie review that she has produced a list of movies that she will critique for readers in the hope that fans will join her appreciation of some great films. We hope you enjoy her first-ever second-ever movie review, to be followed by her first-ever third-ever review sometime in December.
“Um, Panda, do you have your review ready?”
“Oh, right, you need me to do that thing.”
“That thing where you stare out the window all day and then people say they like how you think. I have to think like that out my window now. Bee Arr Bee.”
(Pandas always write in privacy. I did not know that, either.)
Panda returned with a review written in jam on toast but was completely legible. Here it is, minus the breakfast aroma, Panda’s review of Hot Tub Time Machine, the classic comedy from 2010, which is available for rent on several streaming services, including Amazon Prime Video and Sling. Any errors in transcription are mine.—Mark Aldrich, editor.]

Hi!! It’s me Panda! Hi Mark!!!
I’m back with another movie review.
I watched Hot Tub Time Machine last weekend for the first time and then I watched it three more times in a row. I LOVED IT.
I don’t remember all of the characters’ names, but I do remember laughing a LOT. There’s a good soundtrack, and I liked a lot of parts from the movie.
