Hot Tub Time Machine 2 Review: Insulting, Nonsensical, Yet Funny

23 February 2015 1:50 PM, PST | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

I'm not too sure there was even a demand for a sequel to 2010's Hot Tub Time Machine. That film was a modern throwback to the raunchy comedies of the 1980s, punctuated by the fact that the lead characters, played by John Cusack, Clark Duke, Rob Corddry and Craig Robinson all were thrust back in time to 1986 so Cusack's character could find himself. At it's core -- amidst all the toilet humor -- was a story with some heart and it surprisingly worked.

Now, five years later, Hot Tub Time Machine 2 is here and while the humor is still spot on, the heart is nowhere to be found. Cusack wisely opted to not reprise his role, and Adam Scott (TVs Parks And Recreation) stepped in as a new character. The plot revolves around Lou (Corddry), after using the time machine to become a billionaire, getting shot in the...uh. »

Review: Aggressive Comedy Rubs Raw in 'Hot Tub Time Machine 2'

22 February 2015 2:11 PM, PST | | See recent news »

What could be more ridiculous than a Hot Tub Time Machine? How about a sequel? Gratuitous as it may seem, Hot Tub Time Machine 2 has found its way to theaters five short years after its absurd and hysterical predecessor. Extraneous? Sure. Once you’re familiar with the title of the film all questions of whether or not it’s called for get swept aside. The real question here is, “Is this film funny in the slightest?” Simply, yes, Hot Tub Time Machine 2 is hilarious. Bringing three of the four leads back from the first film – the funniest three, by the way – this second film twists the aggressive comedy dial hard to the right and with a brazen attitude. It’s as if the film dares you to be disgusted, and, to an extent, it succeeds. More below! Those three returning champions of the Hot Tub Time Machine world are Craig Robinson, »

Box Office: ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Plummets, ‘Hot Tub Time Machine 2′ Flops

22 February 2015 8:13 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fifty Shades of Grey” didn’t show much endurance in its second weekend of release, with ticket sales for the erotic drama plunging a staggering 73% from its record-breaking $85.1 million debut.

The adaptation of E.L. James’ kinky bestseller about a billionaire and the college student he introduces to the world of Bdsm nabbed first place at the box office, but its $23.2 million in receipts represented a steep fall from its opening. Its hot-and-fast performance is like those of recent female-driven hits such as “The Fault in Our Stars,” “Sex and the City” and “Magic Mike,” all of which started strong before nosediving in their sophomore weekends.

“This was a movie that was a cultural event, and in order to be a part of it, the core constituency wanted to get out there and see it right away so they could talk about it,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Rentrak. »

Film Independent Spirit Awards 2015 Live-Blog

HitFix Award Gurus Kris Tapley and Greg Ellwood are both attending Saturday's Film Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday (February 21) afternoon in Santa Monica and they left me to handle HitFix's Independent Spirit Awards Winners & Losers list.  And once I'm watching Saturday's show, I might as well be live-blogging Saturday's show as preparation for Sunday's Oscars live-blog, especially since is the last time that "Birdman" and "Boyhood" will be going head-to-head for Best Picture (along with "Selma" and "Whiplash") before the Academy Awards. So follow along and say "Hi" in the comments below... And remember that Saturday's show, hosted by Kristen Bell and Fred Armisen, is airing live on IFC, not that obnoxious tape-delayed thing they used to do! 1:50 p.m. Pt. The show hasn't started, but if you're following the Winners list, you know that "Birdman" has already won for for cinematography, while "Whiplash" won for editing, both results I can accept. »

Review: Hot Tub Time Machine 2

21 February 2015 9:30 AM, PST | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

The phrase "Hot Tub Time Machine" was such an insane concept I couldn't wait to see the 2010 release. (Debbie's review) Sure, it was a fratboy movie, but it was fresh and edgy at a time when the nation was just learning to laugh again a decade after 9/11, and I loved it. Five years was a long time to wait with such anticipation for this sequel.

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 is a wet hot mess, with bad jokes as frequent as jacuzzi bubbles, and good jokes popping like farts in a tub. It has the same writer (Josh Heald), the same director (Steve Pink) and largely the same cast (John Cusack is replaced by Adam Scott), but it failed to capture the same magic for me. I can't say I hated it, but somehow it felt ... different, like I was watching an elaborately extended Super Bowl commercial.

Box Office: ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Still on Top With $24 Million

21 February 2015 8:20 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fifty Shades of Grey” is still on top of the U.S. box office, despite competition from a trio of new releases and a sharp 72% drop in ticket sales.

Universal’s romance drama tied up $8 million on Friday on its way to earn $24 million-plus in its second weekend — raising its 10-day cume to $131 million.

The fall comes as no surprise considering how high the film climbed last weekend. “Fifty Shades” broke several records in its debut (including the biggest February opening of all time) over Valentine’s Day and Presidents Day weekend, taking in a whopping $85 million at the domestic box office.

The film, based on E.L. James’ bestselling erotic trilogy, carries a fairly modest $40 million production budget. It had already crossed $300 million worldwide by Wednesday.

James is currently in discussions with Universal about writing the script for the movie’s sequel herself.

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 Gets An Awesome Theme Song Courtesy Of Craig Robinson

20 February 2015 3:10 PM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 is getting ready to make a fast-paced comedic charge through a proverbial hornet.s (or "horny") nest of a box-office landscape dominated by Fifty Shades of Grey. However bleak of a scenario that may be, the cast of the film are nevertheless making their rounds doing their best to get people talking about this fun-filled time-bending romp of a sequel. Appearing last night on Conan, co-star, Craig Robinson decided that music may be the best way to indelibly leave a lasting impression on potential ticket-buyers. Breaking out a conveniently placed keyboard, he goes into a HTTM2-themed musical number that would make a certain "steel town girl on a Saturday night" proud. Robinson.s movie-plugging Yankovic-esque rendition of Michael Sembello.s iconic theme to 1983.s Flashdance is clearly fun and upbeat enough to even get Christian Grey to convert his collection of ropes and blindfolds »

Et was soaking in all the fun at the Hot Tub Time Machine 2 premiere this week. Stars Rob Corddry, Clark Duke, Adam Scott, Jason Jones and Gillian Jacobs all admitted they had almost too much fun shooting the film in New Orleans – but the real winner was Craig Robinson.

When asked who was the craziest partier on the set, the cast unanimously voted and the results all pointed to Robinson.

"He's the kind of guy who lands in a city, even if he's never been there before, [and] by 20 minutes in, he's got a group of people," said Adam Scott. "We would get texts at four in the morning, and we'd go there, and he'd be at the piano with 100 people around him singing along."

Critics overwhelmingly agree that audiences should save their time and money instead of buying a ticket to see “Hot Tub Time Machine 2″ this weekend.

Film Review: Back to the Funny in ‘Hot Tub Time Machine 2’

20 February 2015 3:23 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Chicago – The concept is a hot tub, that also acts as a time machine. It practically writes itself! The too-meticulous plot of “Hot Tub Time Machine 2” still delivers a decent amount of laughs, although most of them fall under the crude and rude category. Better a cheap laugh than no laugh.

Rating: 3.0/5.0

It is almost impossible to critique such a film, because it basically throws every possible joke against the wall, and a number of them stick. The plot has a Dada-like surrealism to it, going in such different directions that it becomes useless to try and follow at some point, and the characters have the same lack of consistency. The script – by Josh Heald – allows each of the principal characters to do whatever they want at some point, with no regard as to what persona had been assigned to them, as long as the word ‘f**k’ is »

Best of Late Night TV: Snoop Dogg's Plizzanet Earth and Craig Robinson's Jam Session (Video)

19 February 2015 11:06 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Time for another addition of Plizzanet Earth with Snoop Dogg, who stopped by "Jimmy Kimmel Live" to muse on -- what else? An enormous cold-blood seal humping an innocent penguin. It goes without saying that his profound thoughts are not to be missed. Also, why hasn't Animal Planet picked up this show yet?

Kelly Ripa also stopped by "Kimmel," and Jimmy shared a super old-school clip of her chatting about how men and women should alternate paying for dinner. Sigh, a progressive feminist even when rocking an 80s perm and a turtleneck, guys. Also, please prepare yourself for the best dance moves you've ever seen.

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 – The Review

19 February 2015 9:55 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Time once more to traverse that tricky minefield of comedy sequels (and you wonder why Kristen Wiig has vehemently said no to Bridesmaids 2!). Seems just yesterday that we were revisiting those three conspiring pals in Horrible Bosses 2 (which, despite some pans, was miles above the Hangover follow-ups and the return of Lloyd and Harry). And now, we’re set to revisit three other pals (it was four, but more on that later) which actually plays as a take-off on a more serious flick from just the last few weeks, Project Almanac. Yup, just like Marty McFly and Doc Brown, these dudes can’t refrain from tempting the fates and history. Fire up the jets, grab lotsa’ beverages, and make a splash by jumpin’ into Hot Tub Time Machine 2.

The boys have been busy since that first trek nearly five years ago. Adam, played by John Cusack, is a big »

Hot Tub Time Machine 2

Written by Josh Heald

Directed by Steve Pink

USA, 2015


“This shit’s pretty flat, bro.”

So sayeth the rudest man in the world, who just happened to be sitting behind me at the screening for Hot Tub Time Machine 2. He began the evening sitting in front of me; deliberately stealing a seat marked ‘Studio Representative’ so he could talk to the beautiful publicist. Shockingly, she rebuffed his drunken advances. “Whatever, bro,” he dismissively burped, and then ambled to the seat behind me. Yes, he’s the guy who calls both men and women ‘bro.’ He’s also the guy who talks through the entire movie, eats handfuls of popcorn with his mouth wide open (ostensibly, so he can still breathe), and kicks the back of the seat like a bored child. In other words, he’s the target audience for Hot Tub Time Machine 2. »
