Hot Tub Time Machine 2 Violates The Laws Of Space And Time And Taste

fb share tweet share

hottubtimemachineposterlarge-2-578x391Lets be honest, you probably already know if you want to see Hot Tub Time Machine 2 or not based on the first one, the crude, crass style of humor, and the cast. This is generally the kind of foul-mouthed comedy you either like or you don’t, and it delivers exactly what you expect on that front.

I legitimately enjoy the first movie. It’s hard to claim that it’s great art, but it’s self-aware in a fun way, witty between dick jokes (and I’m certainly not at all opposed to a well-timed dick joke), the story moves along at a good clip, and there’s even a kernel of heart and friendship underneath it all. The second one, however, has none of these redeeming qualities.

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 Gets Weird As Hell In These New Photos

fb share tweet share

Hot Tub Time Machine 2Next 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.

This Hot Tub Time Machine 2 Red Band Trailer Violates The Laws Of Space And Time

fb share tweet share

Yeah, maybe don’t watch this new red band Hot Tub Time Machine 2 trailer while you’re at work, or if there are small children prone to repeating things in earshot. You don’t want them to expand their vocabulary like this. Unless you have headphones, you can probably get away with it then, and your coworkers won’t be able to hear the swears and blowjob jokes. They will, however, still be able to see naked women and excessive drug use—you’d expect nothing less from a Hot Tub Time Machine movie. Pick your spots is all I’m saying.

This Hot Tub Time Machine 2 Trailer Mixes Up The Formula

fb share tweet share

I enjoy Hot Tub Time Machine, it’s full of funny people doing their thing, having fun, but it’s not the greatest movie ever or anything like that. And it made a little money ($64 million worldwide against a $36 million budget), and was successful enough, but hardly a hit. Despite those facts, however, it didn’t seem like anyone was out there clamoring for a sequel. But we all know that’s never stopped a studio before, and Hot Tub Time Machine 2 opens early next year (after being bumped from Christmas), and there’s this new trailer to remind you of that fact.

Most of the key players are back for this go round, with Craig Robinson, Rob Corddry, and Clarke Duke all reprising their roles from the first film. John Cusack is the notable absence, but it looks like his place in the quartet has been filled by Parks and Recreations’ Adam Scott, which isn’t a bad choice all things considered.

The Best And Worst Time Travelers To Time Travel With (Other Than The Doctor)

fb share tweet share

companionsDoctor Who returned for its eighth modern season, with Peter Capaldi’s Twelve enjoying a Victorian adventure with his latest companion, Clara Oswin Oswald (Jenna Coleman). And that’s a big part of the appeal of Doctor Who, isn’t it? The idea of getting a guided tour of all of time and space. If the TARDIS suddenly materialized in your living room and the Doctor invited you in, who wouldn’t be tempted to sign on for as long as he’d have you? But if you’re going to travel through time, you want to have good company and you want it to not be an enormous pain in the ass. As you’ll see in this article, that’s not always guaranteed. Sometimes you get a sweet-ass DeLorean, sure…but sometimes you get Ashton Kutcher.

Just in case you’re in the market for a vacation into last week, you’ll definitely want to consider your options. Thankfully we did the legwork for you. Here are our picks for which time travelers would be worth your time, and which ones you’ll want to avoid at all costs.

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 Is Still Happening, Here Is The Red Band Trailer To Prove It

fb share tweet share

If we’re being honest, I completely forgot that Hot Tub Time Machine 2 was even happening. As soon as I realized that it is a thing that exists, and that John Cusack isn’t involved, my initial reaction was not optimistic, in fact it was the exact opposite of optimistic. But after I watched this new red band trailer, however, I have to admit that this looks really damn funny if you’re in the mood for dick jokes, and I usually am. If nothing else, this movie has Rob Corddry being foul and crude, and that is almost always a simple recipe for success.

Apparently Paramount presented this to fans at San Diego Comic-Con, though it was presented to the non-wristband-having populace by IGN, and there is a lot of nerdy stuff to sink your teeth into in these three minutes. And boobs, and swearing, and fart jokes, and a man shot in the penis, so you know, business as usual. There are obvious Back to the Future parallels, especially Part II, and you have to love that there are also overt references to Terminator and even Fringe, which you don’t always expect.
