Has a few laughs...
9 April 2015 | by namashi_1See all my reviews

The sequel to the 2010 film Hot Tub Time Machine, 'Hot Tub Time Machine 2' has a few laughs. Its definitely not a laugh-riot, but some genuine jokes/sequences leave an impression.

'Hot Tub Time Machine 2' Synopsis: When Lou finds himself in trouble, Nick and Jacob fire up the hot tub time machine in an attempt to get back to the past. But they inadvertently land in the future with Adam Jr. Now they have to alter the future in order to save the past - which is really the present.

Let me put it up bluntly: 'Hot Tub Time Machine 2' is strictly an okay fare, that only works in limited doses. This isn't the funniest sequel you'd watch, but, the few laughs here are fun. I didn't except anything else & hence I wasn't disappointed.

Josh Heald's Screenplay definitely needed more wit, but it has some humor, nonetheless. Steve Pink's Direction is alright. Cinematography, Editing & Art Design, are superb. Graphics lack finesse.

Performance-Wise: Craig Robinson, Rob Corddry & Clark Duke reprise their parts with more madness, but one is certainly missing John Cusack. Seriously, why isn't he a part of the sequel? Adam Scott tries to fill in Cusack's shoes, but fails totally. Chevy Chase appears in a miss-a-blink appearance.

On the whole, 'Hot Tub Time Machine 2' works in bits.
