Hot Tub Time Machine 2 2015

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 is a 2015 American science fiction comedy film directed by Steve Pink and written by Josh Heald. The film stars Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson, Clark Duke, Adam Scott, Chevy Chase, and Gillian Jacobs. It is the sequel to the 2010 film Hot Tub Time Machine. The film was released on February 20, 2015. John Cusack, who played Adam Yates and produced the first film, does not return in the theatrical cut, but has a brief cameo in the unrated version. The film was a critical and commercial failure, getting panned by critics and grossing a total of $12.8 million, which was less than the film’s budget and opening weekend of the first film (both $14 million).

Hot Tub Time Machine 2

The future of American screen comedy looks an awful lot like the present — which is to say, steeped in pop-culture references, groin-fixated humor and gay panic — if we are to believe the enjoyably screw-loose vision of “Hot Tub Time Machine 2.” Fittingly enough, given John Cusack’s conspicuous absence this time around, director Steve Pink and scribe Josh Heald have ditched their original back-to-the-’80s conceit and leapt ahead to 2025, uncovering a not-so-grim dystopia where dogs ride hoverboards and automobiles have minds of their own, but where life continues to serve up the same old setbacks and letdowns as always. Tackling its time-travel premise with even less rigor than its predecessor, but just the right amount of slapdash, surrealism-for-slobs attitude (plus the welcome addition of Adam Scott), this unaccountably likable sequel may not match the first film’s fairly modest $65 million worldwide haul, but should draw enough returning fans to see its box office fortunes take a dip rather than a plunge.

Before it ended on a happy note of supernatural wish fulfillment, the first “Hot Tub Time Machine” (2010) managed to deliver a surprisingly bittersweet meditation — OK, more of an extended brain-fart — on the irretrievability of the past and the inevitable disappointment of the future. Those tough realities come into play once more in this gleefully haphazard follow-up, which is founded on a general theory of middle-aged American male idiocy that holds true wherever (or whenever) one happens to be positioned along the space-time continuum. It’s that internal logic that lends “Hot Tub Time Machine 2” not only its rough-and-ready comic vigor, but also a surprising measure of thematic integrity.

A rapid-fire montage catches us up on our heroes’ new and seemingly improved lives. Despite having zero tech savvy, Lou Dorchen (Rob Corddry) has exploited his knowledge of the future to become the CEO of Lougle Enterprises; with his not-so-hard-won earnings, he’s become even more of a skirt-chasing, substance-abusing, all-around pathetic excuse for a human being than before, in particular serving as a horrible role model to his nerdy, neglected son, Jacob (Clark Duke). Meanwhile, Lou’s best bud, Nick Webber (Craig Robinson), has launched his own ill-gotten career as a multiplatinum recording artist, stealing hits before they’ve even been written by the likes of Lisa Loeb, the Black Eyed Peas and Snoop Dogg. Loeb herself makes a cameo early on, noting her deep admiration for Nick’s latest song, “Stay (I Missed You),” even though hearing it made her feel “violated.”

There will be more violations to come, thanks to a Christian Slater-hosted TV gameshow called “Choozy Doozy” (rhymes with “Jacuzzi”?), where virtual-reality anal rape is one of the more popular guest challenges. To be fair, though, techno-sodomy is less of a motif in Heald’s screenplay than old-fashioned castration anxiety, starting with a dramatic kickoff where a shadowy figure sneaks into Lou’s mansion and shoots him right between the legs. Although Jacob doesn’t much care if his wretched father lives or dies, he and Nick manage to drag the wailing, bleeding Lou back into the Kodiak Lodge hot tub — which, by way of a hastily explained loophole, has somehow resurfaced on the premises. The three men emerge from the tub to find themselves transported to an alternate universe circa 2025, where they will must figure out who shot Lou — and, for that matter, how the guy managed to survive, and with his nether-regions seemingly intact.

The (somewhat) deeper riddle, of course, is exactly how the phenomenon of time travel works in “Hot Tub Time Machine 2” — a thoroughly nonsensical process that Jacob, the brains of the outfit, manages to describe with admirable clarity, complicated somewhat by Lou and Nick’s incessant, sometimes spoiler-laden references to “The Terminator,” “Looper” and other wormhole-driven actioners of yesteryear. That sort of rampant cinematic cross-checking is very much in line with the first pic (there are also random shout-outs to “Duck Dynasty,” “Boogie Nights” and a future Meryl Streep biopic called “Streepin’ It Real”), as is the riff-erific bit where the characters repeatedly insult each other’s appearance — one of a few gags here that pay surprising dividends with each recurrence.

Cusack, who has recently divided his time between paycheck projects like “The Prince” and upscale specialty-division fare like “Maps to the Stars” and “Love & Mercy,” opted not to accompany his co-stars back into the hot tub this time around (“I don’t think it was his cup of tea,” Corddry noted judiciously in a radio interview). While Cusack’s character is missed here — there’s an intriguing suggestion that he may have vanished into his own alternate universe — his absence has the happy side effect of making room for Scott, who lends the proceedings a much-needed shot of novelty as Adam, a straight-laced, cheerfully insufferable groom-to-be who gamely joins Lou, Nick and Jacob in their quest to stop a killer.
