Against All Odds, The Trailer For 'Hot Tub Time Machine 2' Looks Very, Very Funny
The joke might be old, but it can still be funny. Hot Tub Time Machine, when it first came out, read like one of those one-note Snakes on a Plane gimmicks that would be good for a laugh, then forgettable. So going back to the well for a sequel sounded ominous. Happy to report that, upon seeing the trailer for this sequel, I was wrong... DEAD wrong. (Not really. Just regular wrong.) The sequel fulfills an urge we always have with time-travel movies: To see the protagonists use the mechanism for crazy personal gain. It's perhaps the only highlight of Back to the Future 2, aside from Hoverboards, and this movie seems dedicated to that idea.We shared a different trailer back at Comic-Con, but this one seems to give a better snapshot of the film. We then go into the future with these guys, only to see that things hadn't worked out as they'd hoped. So they time-travel around trying to fix what went wrong. Oh, and it's got Adam Scott.
