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.
