Hot Tub Time Machine 2 returns with internet mogul Lou (Rob Corddry) getting shot. In an uncomfortable place. The gang must track down the shooter. Obviously the only solution is to take the plunge into the Hot Tub. They travel across various decades of time in order to find Lou’s shooter.
The New Orleans-shot comedy Hot Tub Time Machine 2 has added Parks and Recreation alum Adam Scott to the already hysterical cast. The Parks and Rec funny-man is replacing John Cusack, who apparently doesn’t do sequels.
The first Hot Tub Time Machine caught me by surprise. I found myself laughing every time Rob Corddry opened his mouth. Corddry does such a great job of being moronic that you immediately side with him. The trailer reveals Corddry will continue lashing out at his best of friends, churning out laughs by the minute.
The comedic cast continues with the always cool Craig Robinson. He too will lash out at his friends but does it in a teddy bear-like anger. He is cleverly comedic and appears to have great chemistry with everyone he works with. If you missed it, here’s Scene’s interview with Robinson.
The courageously geeky Clark Duke also returns as the son of Rob Corddry’s character. In the first Hot Tub Time Machine, the two despise each other, and when they find out that they are father and son, their relationship remains unchanged. Clark Duke is the butt of most of Corddry’s jokes but has the ability to out-wit his father.
Chevy Chase returns as the hot tub mechanic. Gillian Jacobs joins the cast along with the always funny Thomas Lennon and Jason Jones from The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
This film is directed by Steve Pink and was written by Josh Heald. It will be released on February 20, 2015. See more at the film’s official website www.hottubtimemachine.com/.
