“Hot Tub Time Machine” brought a fresh humor that teamed up an unlikely gang of comedies and actors including John Cusack, Craig Robertson, Rob Corrdy, and Clark Duke for an insightful and witty tale of redemption and reinvention of one’s destiny.
In an industry ready to make a quick buck off of something popular, “Hot Tub Time Machine 2” was missing much more than lead actor John Cusack this time around.
The film opens up sometime in the near future after the events of the first film, where we see Rob Corrdy, Clark Duke, and Craig Robertson adjusted into the lives that they created for themselves, while Cusack appears to be off in the wilderness trying to discover himself by some means which are not fully explained or sought out.
The movie’s conflict starts off right from the bat when an assassin shoots Corrdy’s character in the crotch because most assume that the character in his nature went too far as usual and upset the wrong person. The gang then discovers that Corrdy stole the time machine from the ski lodge in the first film and the gang sets off to try to find the Corrdy’s killer.
The movie had no sense of originality or direction and appeared to be a sleazy commentary “Back to the Future 2,” but despite its plots faults the film was able to deliver constant laughs throughout and the directors knew that the story is not one to be taken seriously. That is why they made it as absurd as possible.
If you are looking for a good laugh “Hot Tub Time Machine 2” is a good suggestion, but be aware that the movie should not be taken seriously by any means.
