Hot Tub Time Machine is an acquired taste. By that I mean it’s not particularly funny or interesting, yet folks seem attached to it anyhow. Now that John Cusack has dropped out (I guess once he realized the film really isn’t a wholesome 80s nostalgia trip), Craig Robinson, Rob Corddry, and Clark Duke star in the sequel as they’ve used their time machine for personal gain.
Now that Lou (Corddry) has claimed he invented the Internet and becomes a big jerk, someone attempts to assassinate him and it’s up to the gang to go forward in time to figure out why. This doesn’t look good at allllllllllll.
Hot Tub Time Machine 2 releases Christmas Day, hilariously enough.
