    Boorish and crass, homophobic and misogynistic, the very definition of sloppy seconds — par for the course where the present generation of male-driven, R-rated, “Hangover”-aping franchise comedies are concerned. That it somehow manages to send you out of the theater feeling tickled rather than sullied may be a mystery as impenetrable as the cosmos.

    Some of the gags are stupid-funny, others are just puerile, making for a hit-or-miss experience.

    In the future, in the past, at all points along the space-time continuum, the Theory of the Teenage Male Mind throws everything out of whack.

    If the undemanding silliness of the first “Hot Tub Time Machine” was your cup of comedy, then you may well enjoy another plunge in these waters. Apart from a few laughs, however, I found the experience tepid and soggy.

    Within five minutes you’ll guess why John Cusack, not overly encumbered with big film roles these days, didn’t return for the sequel: The script is monotonous, meandering and witless.

    This version of the time machine is more powerful — it’s made me go back and hate the original.

Compared to other comedies I've seen, this was easily just as funny, fun, and cliched. The running jokes are great, and it had even less disgusting humor than the first. Maybe because the beginning of this movie isn't good, everyone hates the rest of it? Who cares, I'm glad this movie came out. Expand

That was the case with HotI love being right, I really do, but when i'm wrong and I get a pleasant surprise it makes it that much sweeter. That was the case with Hot tub time machine 2. I never saw the first one, so maybe this made the experience a bit more surprising, but this movie was hilarious, I mean wicked funny. The chemistry between these three actors was special. The script was so funny, and it was so well written. I mean I think some of these one liners are going to go down in history. Essentially being a comedy film, there was a good mystery element going on at the same time. Which gave the raunchy comedy a plot with depth and substance. I was very impressed.
    So this film starts off with rob cordrey's character getting shot in his manhood, and the team uses the hot tub to try and go back in time to save rob cordrey's character, but they end up ten years in the future. From there they encounter a legit smart car that gets pissed at robs character and tries to kill him, drug induced party's, and plenty of corky, raunchy humor and debauchery.
    I think my favorite part of this film was the banter between the characters, they are all so different but, I cant say it enough, they play of each other so well. Another thing they did right was the films run time. I think It clocked out at an hour and a half. It didn't drag or feel slow at anytime. The films tone stayed consistent and the film was paced perfectly. I feel like as ridiculous this plot was it really worked well, they really did surprise me. Another thing they did well was not use all there material in the trailer. Now that I have seen the film, I think they maybe should have shown a little more, showing how funny this movie really is.
    From the crazy drug trips to the little heartfelt moment between lou and jacob this film is so worth going to see if your looking for a good laugh. This is not a waste of money you will 100% get what you are looking for in this film. I can happily say I was totally wrong about this movie. I am going to give Hot tub time machine an 8.5 out of 10. Let me leave you this important life lesson, Don't ever **** in a playground sandbox, you'll get a record and a nickname. Thanks for reading.

This is one of the worst sequel of the year and that's a good thing. Thank goodness I skipped to this waste and see Kingsman instead. I love the entire cast (even though Lisa Loeb made a cameo), but the rest of the movie is just awfully bad. The script is lame, same humor jokes but little less fun, and I don't know what's worst, this or last year's Sex Tape. I guess HTTM2 is just not as bad as I think, but it's the sequel nobody wanted or asked for. Expand

But Sex Tape beats it out because I at least laughed twice in that one. This? I laughed once - at a line that nobody else in the theater made a sound on. I loved the first movie - this second one flat out sucked. I was actively looking forward to coming home to watch something on my DVR. That's sad. So is this movie. Expand

It was much worse. I was the only person in the theater, and for good reason. I spent more time watching the previews than the movie.
    Movies can be crude but still funny but this one was gross and humorless.

It perpously uses elements and jokes from other movies and it's predecessor and shoves them in a badly written script. I really thought that this adventure in time would feature some cool things, like we haven't seen a raunchy science fiction comedy in a while. But no, the movie falls so low that you will be tired to even hear Rob Codrrey talk again, and that is saying something. HTTM2 is a bad movie, it isnt a comedy, it is a mashup of dick jokes, boobs and unflattering comedy. Does that mean this isn't even a movie? Expand
