From Austin Powers breaking wind in a spa to a warthog and a lion relaxing in warm water together, hot tubs have been featured in many fantastic and diverse movies. Though each of these movies is different in its own way, they all share one similar quality: they present hot tubs as a place of relaxation, romance and conversation.
If you’re a hot tub lover and need a good movie to watch tonight, we’ve got you covered. Let’s take a look at some of the best movies that feature hot tubs now.
If you have your own hot tub cinema, watch one of these flicks in your spa for extra fun!
1. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
Hot Tub Scene: In this humorous classic, Ferris and his girlfriend, Sloane, relax in a hot tub after an adventurous and expertly executed day off from school. Unfortunately, the conflicted Cameron, Ferris’ friend, opts to spend time in the pool instead of joining the couple in the spa. While Ferris and Sloane soak their troubles away in a soothing spa, Cameron worries over his impending punishment. If you’re in the mood for a carefree, funny movie, check this one out.
Recreate This Scene: Take a day off work or wait until the weekend to spend an entire day with your loved one. Make sure it’s packed full of fun and exciting activities, such as having lunch at a fancy restaurant, going to a sports game and/or visiting an art museum. After your long and busy day, slip into your hot tub with your partner and talk the rest of the evening away.

2. Hot Tub Time Machine
Hot Tub Scene: If you’re in the mood for a crazy, off-the-wall experience, Hot Tub Time Machine is the movie to see. The plot is driven by a hot tub, but it’s no ordinary hot tub. Rather, it’s one that transports the main characters back to the ‘80s after they spill an energy drink on its controls. A group of old friends who are unsatisfied with their lives get together at a ski resort that holds a lot of memories for them. They attempt to melt their troubles away in a hot tub, but instead are taken back in time for the chance to change their future.
Recreate This Scene: Though many of us wouldn’t mind taking some years off of our age by being transported back in time, pouring drinks on your hot tub controls isn’t the way to do it. Instead, invite some of your longtime friends over for an evening in your spa. Reminisce about the good old days and share a few drinks. By the end of the night, maybe it will feel like you haven’t aged at all.

3. About Schmidt
Hot Tub Scene: Jack Nicholson won an Oscar in this comedy-drama for his portrayal of Schmidt, a widower who tries to find purpose in his life and reconnect with his daughter. While Schmidt is at his future son-in-law, Randall’s house, he throws out his back. Randall’s mother suggests that he soothes his injury in the hot tub with her, and he takes her up on that offer. He soon begins to relax and feel better. That is, until Randall’s mother takes off her clothes and joins him in the hot tub nude. His relaxed state quickly races away as he gets out of the tub, terrified.
Recreate This Scene: We don’t think anyone would want to experience the horror that Schmidt goes through in this scene. So instead of recreating the entire scene, you can just recreate the first part. Whenever you’re feeling pain, step into your hot tub, sit down and let the warm water and jets work your pain away.

4. Lion King 1 ½
Hot Tub Scene: For a family movie night with the kids, you can’t go wrong with Lion King 1 ½. This film is a fun new perspective on the original Lion King, shown through the eyes of Timon and Pumbaa. We see how the two characters meet each other and what they experienced during the first movie. At one point, Timon, Pumbaa and Simba relax in a bubbling hot spring or natural hot tub. You’ll have to watch the movie to see the hilarious outcome of this scene.
Recreate This Scene: Your kids will love to pretend that you all are Timon, Pumbaa and Simba your hot tub. As long as they are over 10 years old, bring them into the spa with you, let them take the reins and act out the scene with them. They’ll have a blast.

5. Austin Powers International Man of Mystery
Hot Tub Scene: This one’s for the adults. For a laugh-out-loud evening, put on the first installment of Mike Myers’ Austin Powers series. Austin, a secret British agent in the swinging ‘60s, is frozen in order to be revived and defeat his enemy, Dr. Evil, when he is also awoken from his cryogenic freeze. The hot tub scene involves the funny-looking Austin Powers getting intimate with a gorgeous woman in a hot tub. Hilariously, the more unattractive the hairy Austin is, the more interested the woman seems to be. You just have to see it for yourself.
Recreate This Scene: Make time to spend a romantic night with your loved one in the hot tub. Pour some beverages into a few plastic glasses, set yourLED lighting to a romantic red or blue color, put on some slow music on and watch sparks fly in the hot tub’s warm water. If you really want to recreate this scene, memorize and recite some ofAustin’s hilarious quotes in his exaggerated English accent. This should definitely get your loved one laughing.
