When Lou gets killed, Nick and Jacob fire up the hot tub time machine to get back to the past, but they inadvertently land in the future with Adam Jr. Now they have to alter the future in order to save the past, which is really the present.Written by
The Plot is weak ,, to be fair, there were some laughs and giggles here and there ,, but not sure that was enough to save some of the movie's dignity...
So i got lost a bit in the beginning so i kinda had to watch bits and pieces from the first movie :\
The plot is weak, didn't made an hint of impression ,in some parts felt all over the place, no where near the fresh new idea as the first movie, making the traveling this time to the future was a clever touch trying to save the sequel,, And to be fair the comedy worked in some other parts. The storyline was okay, and the screenplay looked tidier and tighter after the first 40 minutes.
As for the cast, they were engaging ,, i mean after 2010 the cast drifted apart to their own stuff, Rob Corddry spent a quality time on TV with his "Children's Hospital" show ,, Craig Robinson on "The office" and "the Cleveland show" and same goes for Clark Duke ,, so coming back here after a 5 years gap looked somehow not that WoWzer moment but it went fine in the end.
Overall,, even though the plot was weak, the writers and the dorky oddly funny scenes of the three guys plus Adam Scott did a good job saving some dignity for the movie ... i'm sure it wasn't so satisfying for the "hot tub time machine" loyal Fans ,, but if i'd like to keep it brightly optimistic i'd say 4 out 10 seems quite fair for the sequel.
