I’m a god. I’m a fuckin’ god!
Hot Tube Time Machine is a guilty pleasure for me, the fact we get a sequel makes it seem crap. The majority of the world will not watch this but I couldn’t pass not watching number Two. So what is Hot Tube Time Machine 2 about? Back in 2010, four buddies found themselves whisked to 1986 in a magical hot tub. Now Jacob (Clark Duke), Nick (Craig Robinson) and Lou (Rob Corddry) are reaping the benefits of their adventure. Nick is a hugely successful music star, while Lou has become enormously wealthy as the self-styled Father of the Internet. They think that their dabbling will have no consequences. But they’re wrong. When Lou is shot by a mysterious assassin, the threesome pile back into the hot tub to prevent this calamitous event from happening. But instead of revisiting the past, our foolhardy heroes are catapulted ten years into the future, where things are very different indeed!There are just some comedies that simply do not need a sequel, Hot Tub Time Machine is one of them.
The first one was great and had me laughing a good amount of times, this one, however, was insanely awful and bored me to death. It made laugh not once and I was extremely disappointed. It takes all the humor that made the first film hilarious and replaces it with juvenile sex jokes and corny dialogue that would barely even be funny on paper. This movie tries way too hard to funny and fails miserably.This movie was a huge disaster! The humor was so absurd, the dialogue was terrible, and it fails to crack a single clever joke throughout its runtime. I often enjoy raunchy R-rated comedies because of how clever they use their raunchy humor, but this one just crude, clichéd, and never manages to be funny. The jokes they use get so repetitive and dumb that I had myself rolling my eyes. The character would crack these ridiculous one-liners that made them sound like a bunch of twelve year olds. All in all, this is not only one of the movies I have seen this year so far, but probably one of the worst sequels I have seen period.
