Hot Tub Time Machine 2 was a feeble attempt at making a sequel to what in this bloggers estimation was a pretty good little comedy back in 2010 when it came out. Mistake number one – waiting this long to bring out a sequel. Mistake number two – not bringing back John Cusack and letting the cast improvise too much. The guy who plays Lou is so much more a jackass this time around I was hoping they would kill him. The biggest problem with this film is the idea that there is very little to hang a plot on and I know that more and more comedies are relying on that kind of thing. They try to be funnier less anything that makes sense or that people have to follow. I myself wish we could go back to the glory days of comedy by which I mean the 80’s and early 90’s Caddyshack, Ghostbusters, hell, even some of Jim Carrey’s early work has more to offer than this film and I don’t really care for Carrey at all. With all this said I still love the first Hot Tub and think that if they make a third one they have a lot to make up for. However there are at least half a dozen funny moments in the film that make it worth a watch at least once. Hot Tub Time Machine 2 gets 2.5 stars out 5.
