The movie world is littered with the failures of sequels to flash in the pan comedies. Just look at this year. Did you go see Dumb and Dumber To? No. No one did.
Up until about two minutes ago, I didn’t know they were making a sequel to Hot Tub Time Machine. And if you told me that before I saw this trailer, I would have issued a dismissive “Pfft,” and obnoxiously thought about how terrible a movie it would be.
If this trailer is any indication, it won’t be. Or maybe it will be, but damn if I wasn’t laughing out loud the entire time I watched this.
Actually, I lied in the headline. Did you catch it? This isn’t everybody. Noticeably absent from the trailer is John Cusack, but I’d bet anything he makes an appearance in the film.
