Hot Tub Time Machine 2 Review

10 April 2015 1:01 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

If the words “Ball Juice” and “Hot Tub” get you all excited, then you’re in for a treat with the sequel nobody asked for. Hot Tub Time Machine 2 has arrived, in what is obvious glitch in the space time continuum. The movie continues more or less where the original left off with our hapless fuck wits being incredibly successful and wealthy, after changing history in the last movie. Craig Robinson, Clarke Duke and Rob Corddry all reprise their roles with the obvious exception of John Cusack who appears in a photograph only. Robinson’s character Nick, is after recording every huge pop track in history and taking all the credit, and Lou (Corddry) has invented Lougle, with Jacob (Duke) being his long suffering son of sorts. When Lou finds himself in a spot of bother, the unlikely trio find themselves once again time travelling in a hot tub »

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 movie review: time to say goodbye

9 April 2015 3:16 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Not so much a movie as a mismatched mix of dick jokes and rampant homophobia. I’m kidding: There aren’t any actual jokes here. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): hated the first movie

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

It’s not so much a movie as a collection of dick jokes and — and this is mildly interesting, in a way psychologically revealing of the creators — rampant homophobia, as if what we’re intended to hear is “Hey! You! Look at my penis! Unless you’re a dude, that would be gross.” Or maybe it’s “My penis is awesome! But not in a gay way!” Wait, I lie: There aren’t any actual jokes in Hot Tub Time Machine 2. Scenes sort of ramble on for long, humor-free minutes, getting nowhere near a joke, or even near the setup for a potential punchline. »

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 review: Stick to your DeLoreans and phone boxes

8 April 2015 5:40 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Steve Pink; Screenwriter: Josh Heald; Starring: Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson, Clark Duke, Adam Scott; Running time: 93 mins; Certificate: 15

2010's Hot Tub Time Machine came as a pleasant surprise. What looked like a dreadful frat-boy comedy with a silly premise was actually a genuinely funny and (at times) clever sci-fi comedy. It was only a matter of time for a sequel to be made, but has it come five years too late?

The sequel picks up where the first instalment left off, in a fantasy world where Lou (Rob Corddry) invented Google and Nick (Craig Robinson) has ripped off loads of pop songs years before they were meant to come out.

Sadly, John Cusack sat this one out as Adam, which is a shame as he brought a certain essence of seniority and was the gang's de facto leader. Without him there is a small void and the three main »

NBC Sets Summer Premiere Dates for Pair of New Comedies, Eight Other Shows

26 March 2015 1:05 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC has added to its busy summer slate, pairing new comedies “Mr. Robinson” and “The Carmichael Show” for an hour block on Wednesday and scheduling eight more new and returning series that will premiere between Memorial Day and early August.

New alternative entries “The Island” and “I Can Do That” are the first newcomers to come aboard, and each will get a lead-in from “American Ninja Warrior,” which had been previously announced for a May 25 premiere date.

“The Island,” based on the hit Channel 4 U.K. series of the same name, sends 14 American men to a deserted island with only the clothes on their backs and minimal survival skills. The twist is that there will be no prizes, eliminations, winners or producers. The six-episode series comes from Endemol Shine North America and Bear Grylls Ventures and will air Mondays at 10 starting May 25.

Cringe: 13 movies with blatantly homophobic scenes

26 March 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The new comedy "Get Hard" stars Kevin Hart as an unlikely coach who trains Will Ferrell for a stint in prison. In one scene, Hart insists that Ferrell go to a top La brunch spot and give oral sex to a random patron in the bathroom to learn -- I guess? -- the mechanics of prison rape. Yes, this movie equates consensual gay sexual activity with actual rape. Cut to Will Ferrell in a restaurant bathroom gagging at the sight of a penis for the amusement of a multiplex audience. Could it be the most homophobic scene in a comedy of the past ten years? It's certainly a candidate. To commemorate this weirdly ignorant movie, we've compiled a list: movies with homophobic scenes so blatant, they made us shudder. Sometimes a movie reeks of homophobia (See: that ol' heart-warmer "Cruising") and sometimes it's just a couple of moments in a »

Anna Kendrick Takes Seat at 'Table 19' with 'Rocket Science' Director

25 March 2015 11:43 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Before Anna Kendrick was the wonderful sensation she is today, she starred in a little indie called Rocket Science. Even then, Kendrick showed tons of potential in the role of a fast-talking, intimidating debate competitor, and it's no surprise that she's one of the most popular and talented actresses working today. Well, Deadline reports she's reteaming with Rocket Science director Jeffrey Blitz for a new comedy called Table 19. The film follows a group of total strangers forced to sit together as the misfits at a destination wedding. Surely hilarity, and maybe romance will ensure, especially when you hear who else is starring. The cast of Table 19 will also feature Craig Robinson, who starred in the disastrous comedy Rapturepalooza with Kendrick; Lisa Kudrow, fresh off a great bit part in Neighbors last year; British treasure Stephen Merchant of "Extras" and "Hello Ladies" fame; Tony Revolori, the lead lobby boy »

Kendrick Spirit: Jeffrey Blitz Reteams With Rocket Science Thesp for “Table 19″

24 March 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

A project that was at one point in time set up at Fox Searchlight and had the Duplass bros. looking to direct from their own script, Jeffrey Blitz who has been attached to the project since 2011 is finally setting sail and will reteam with his Rocket Science star on Table 19. While she was mentioned back in November along potentials Steve Carell and Tina Fey, it was just announced that Anna Kendrick will indeed topline an ensemble cast comprised of Craig Robinson, Lisa Kudrow, Stephen Merchant, Tony Revolori, June Squibb, Wyatt Russell and Amanda Crew. Shooting will take place in Atlanta next week. Shawn Levy’s 21 Laps is producing.

Gist: Described as a singles-at-the-wedding pic, the ensemble comedy follows a group of strangers who meet at the “losers” table at a wedding. Told from their perspective, the story explores what marriage means to those on the sidelines.
