There’s nothing better than turning a hot tub into a time machine. Unless of coarse you add the number two.
At first I was hesitant to see the movie because there’s no John Cusack. But then I thought, maybe they’re just giving us a Darin switch. Like in Bewitched, gloss over John Cusack even existed. But in Hot Tub Time Machine 2 they decide to introduce John Cusak’s son. So I spent half of the movie thinking, who invited this idiot. I’m pretty sure no one asked for Cusack lite.
The big question is did Hot Tub Time Machine jump the shark. With this sequel it’s more like they jumped the sharknado.
The goal of the movie is to figure out who shot Lou. And I only know this because they mentioned it like thirty times. But it seemed like every time they got close to solving the murder, it was time for another scene about dudes junk.
I still love the fact that the characters repeatedly mess up the space-time continuum. Steven Hawking is probably like, “I know the theory of everything, but I still can’t figure out how they time travel using a hot tub.”
The funny thing is when I looked up Hot Tub Time Machine 2, I got an ad for an actual hot tub. At first I was annoyed, but the more I thought about it I realized I could really go for a good soak. Never underestimate the power of Google.
Next week I try to sit through Never Lose Focus – the new Will Smith movie.
