Hot Tub Time Machine 2 Review: Needed to stay in the past

The Hit:

If I could go back in time to not watch Hot Tub Time Machine 2, I would. Sure, some movies have great sequels and produce that extra oomph to make it just as good or even better than the first, but this was not one. Hot Tub Time Machine 2 was disappointing and just not as good as the first.

There were a few laughs here and there, but in the big picture, the story wasn't catchy and had a few plot holes that the film really couldn't recover from. The movie tried too hard in certain areas where they shouldn't have. I give movies a chance no matter what other critics say: sometimes they're right, sometimes the genre they're bashing is actually great in my perspective and sometimes the movies they give the best ratings don't intrigue me. Well, the critics were right about this one and there's not much else to say. 

If you liked the first and need to see the second I'd just wait for the DVD/Blu Ray rental and save the movie ticket money. You'll laugh in spots, but if I could have changed the channel and watched something else I would have.

The Verdict:
Red Light (Don't see it)
