Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “When Lou, who has become the ‘father of the Internet,’ is shot by an unknown assailant, Jacob and Nick fire up the time machine again to save their friend in an attempt to get back to the past. But they inadvertently land in the future. Now they have to alter the future in order to save the past… which is really the present.”

Neutral— Having enjoyed the original “Hot Tub Time Machine,” I was looking forward to this sequel, but having seen it, I was disappointed.

There were a few good, funny moments, decent special effects, but nothing great.
My Ratings: Moral rating: Offensive / Moviemaking quality: 3½

…Beware the movie where the funniest material plays over the end credits. A woman appears topless for no reason other than cheap titillation, and couplings largely are cringe-inducing or downright offensive. … [1½/4]
Barbara Vancheri, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
…Someone should have pulled the plug…
John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter
…Lewd romp… Cartoonish gore, gratuitous nudity—topless actresses, and a topless Corddry asking the makeup artist whether he needs more “nipple rouge”—and jokes about gay sex, group sex, sex with Marilyn Monroe, any kind of sex abound. …[2/4]
Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
…The [dopey] charm of the first film is nowhere to be seen, leaving only penis jokes, cheap setpieces and a bull-in-a-china-shop performance from Rob Corddry… truly, there’s nothing besides repeated use of swear words in lieu of wit. … [1/5]
