Hot Tub Time Machine 2
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
