HOT TUB TIME MACHINE 2 is awful. It is an assault on the intelligence of everyone. The smartest person of the bunch is John Cusack who was intelligent enough not to return to the hot tub “franchise”. Unfortunately for Craig Robinson, Clark Duke and Rob Corddry, they decided to return to this time traveling stinker (I’m assuming for the money… let’s hope it was for the money). The first mistake was the decision to focus the story around Corddry’s character, Lou Dorchen. Not that Dorchen is a bad choice, but Corddry’s idea of comedy acting is so over-the-top that he consumes all the oxygen and light in the universe. As a second banana or in a “Daily Show” three minute bit he’s okay. But the lead? Nope. Never. Save your money and don’t see this film.

Grade: D-
