Critic Reviews for Hot Tub Time Machine 2
It's a dull, lazy, scattershot would-be comedy about a group of mostly unlikable characters who have all the depth of the Three Stooges in the Curly Joe era.
Provided you find any of this funny, the anarchic spirit can be exhilarating, but don't waste too much energy on it.
Hot Tub Time Machine 2 is so bad it might make you question your allegiance to the original Hot Tub Time Machine.
Sans the original's redemptive nostalgia or any newfound cleverness, it's just a manic, flop-sweat-drenched mess.
Corddry, Robinson, Duke, and Scott have their partisans in the audience, but they're not actors who can carry a movie, even when it's split four ways -- not when their default settings tend to be some variation on "big baby" and "obnoxious jerk.
Audience Reviews for Hot Tub Time Machine 2
You know how you watch some sequels, and its bad, and you think "they didn't even try on this one, damn!!" Well I think they tried on this one ... and it's still bad. Okay, maybe not THAT bad, but bad enough. Unless you fancy lots of dick jokes. Fancy that?
This was even funnier than the first one. The cast is back and they are having a blast in every scene they are in. A total blast of laughs. The boys are back brining the comedy and heart.
Normally when I watch a sequel to a comedy I really enjoyed, I go in with an open mind, kowing that it has no chance of surpassing the original. "Hot Tub Time Machine 2" not only did not surpass it's predecessor, but it get's shit on entirely by it. Having a story that just exists to send the characters through time once again, there really is nothing interesting going on during the duration of this film. I felt empty handed by the conclusion and that was a huge disappointment, because there is so much that can be done with a time travel story. Getting jumbled in a complex plot, I really did not care about anything the characters had to go through. The voice of reason in the first film was John Cusack's character, and without his return, everyone felt like an innane person. Relying on profanity and dick jokes to chug the movie along, it felt like it just would not end. "Hot Tub Time Machine 2" is lazily written, from it's 4th wall sequel jokes to it's on the nose dialogue, and the direction is all over the place. This film exists from the success of the first and they clearly could care less if it was good. I chuckled once or twice, but every single joke felt recycled from other films of the like. This film is terrible all around. Even if you are a fan of the first, I do not even recommend one viewing out of curiosty, because it is just unnecessary.
