Hot Tub Time Ma­chine 2

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Rated / Dvd & blu- ray -

Re­lease Date: 3 Au­gust

2015 | 15 | Blu- ray/ DVD

Re­lent­lessly ob­nox­ious and piti­fully un­funny, this is a movie to avoid like bathing with a toaster. The se­quel to the 2010 hit sees the same loath­some gang re­turn ( mi­nus John Cu­sack), jump in their tub and land in 2025, where they try to stop a shoot­ing in 2015. It makes no sense but don’t worry, the mak­ers don’t care: all they care about is tes­ti­cles, vomit, penises, swear­ing, anuses and drugs.

The big­gest joke is that it thinks it’s sci- fi savvy, with Ter­mi­na­tor, Looper and Fringe ref­er­ences; there’s even the Who- ish line, “It doesn’t take you where you want to go, it takes you where you need to go”. You cer­tainly don’t need to go any­where near this film.

Ex­tras: Com­men­tary; 16 short fea­turettes; deleted scenes. Rus­sell Lewin
