I don’t think any fan of the first Hot Tub Time Machine movie was expecting there to be a sequel. Regardless, 4 years later and here is the sequel. Good news, from the looks of this first trailer it’s gonna rock. Hot Tub Time Machine 2 returns most of the main cast, with the exception of John Cusack and Lizzy Caplin. The film picks up literally after the events of the first film. Nick Webber (played by Craig Robinson) and Lou Dourchen (played by Rob Corddry) are enjoying their successful careers they got from changing the past in the first film. Nick has remade any successful song he wants into his own and Lou has taken the name Father of the Internet after (re)inventing it. Suddenly, Lou gets shot at his own party. The group comes up with a plan to prevent Lou from getting shot when his son Jacob (played by Clark Duke) reveals a secret Hot Tub Time Machine. However, this time the group rather than going into the past again they end up in the future. Once more they go on an adventure this time to stop Lou’s shooter and change the past, Terminator style.
Hot Tub Time Machine 2 is pretty much the same film as the first. That’s not a bad thing because the first one in my eyes was so good. I like the chemistry between the group of friends. The jokes shown in the trailer recall back to the first film’s jokes, only not entirely the same. Fans of the first film can definitely find humor in this trailer. For those who haven’t seen the first film I definitely encourage you to watch it. It’s a great comedy with plenty of funny moments.
I am definitely seeing a trend with these comedy sequels being the same movie as the first. I saw it with 22 Jump Street and it worked great. Horrible Bosses 2 looks to do the same thing as the first one, based off what we seen in the first trailer. Then there’s this movie, which may not look like it needed a sequel, but it could still be great. Joining the cast is actor Adam Scott and returning for the sequel is Chevy Chase. Check out the trailer below.
Hot Tub Time Machine 2 will release in theaters THIS CHRISTMAS.
