Let’s face it, even if you enjoyed Hot Tub Time Machine (2010) like I sorta did, I don’t think too many were screaming out for Hot Tub Time Machine 2 (2014). That said, this trailer actually has me kind of excited by the premise. Time travel films are always telling the audience the potential disastrous time space continuum knock on effects that time travel can bring. This film is actually going to explore that notion. Sure, I’m doubting it will be ‘hard sci-fi’ in its approach, but it is at least a somewhat novel approach to the plot. Though I have to say my initial enthusiasm wavered a fair bit when I realised John Cusack did not feel it worthwhile to come back for this. So I’m on the fence with this. Hopeful, but no Cusack sucks.

Meh . . . .I think I’ll side with you on the skepticism towards this sequel. This just doesn’t look like it’s going to even live up to the first’s quality. And that was a rather forgettable comedy to begin with. But, looks like there could be a few decent moments here and there. Enough to maybe eventually give this a rental! 🙂
Totally agree my man. Might pick it up to rent down the line if I’m keen for something stupid to go with my beer. But no Cusack means I’m not too fussed at all.
