Next up on the theatrical sci-fi docket is the foul-mouthed time travel joint Hot Tub Time Machine 2. Odds are, you probably already know whether or not you want to see this movie based solely on whether or not you enjoyed the first one (or even the trailers). That makes sense, it’s crude and basically looks like 93-minute dick joke, which isn’t up everyone’s alley, but it also looks weird as shit, as you can see in these new photos.
Coming from our lovely older sibling Cinema Blend, these pictures show off some of the strangeness that runs through Hot Tub Time Machine 2. It may not be enough to totally win you over if you’re not super stoked about this one, but it does illustrate that at least they’re trying to do something fun and different instead of rehashing what came before. Just look at that photo of Adam Scott, who plays the son of John Cusack’s character (who is sitting this one out) from the first film, tripping balls. That should be fun.
With access to a time machine, hot tub or otherwise, most of us would kill Hitler, win the lottery, or do something else we’ve seen in one time travel movie or another. Not these guys, however, they get inventive, like Lou (Rob Corrdry) starting Lougle or joining Motley Lou, and Nick (Craig Robinson) recording other people’s pop songs and passing them off as his own. Who the hell knows what Jacob (Clarke Duncan) has been up to, but he has to come to terms with the fact that Lou is his dad, which would be hard for anyone. But back to my original point, they do crazy ass things like go back to the Revolutionary War.
Scott isn’t the only newcomer to this party. Community star Gillian Jacobs also shows up for a jaunt through time. From this photo, it looks like she may be Adam Jr.’s love interest or wife or something like that. Who knows, lets just hope she doesn’t Britta the whole thing.
There is all kinds of other madness going on in this movie, including Christian Slater hosting a game show that makes Nick do some things, well, some things he’d rather not. Hot Tub Time Machine 2 hits theaters everywhere next Friday, February 20.
