Hot Tub Time Machine 2 - What You Need To Know

Hot Tub Time Machine was one of 2010’s breakout hits. The story is of three down-on-their-luck friends - Adam, Nick and Lou, as well as Adam’s loser nephew Jacob - on a holiday at a low rent ski resort when they discover a time machine inside the hot tub at their cabin and go right back to 1986. Realising they can all turn their lives around, they take full advantage with predictably hilarious consequences.

Audiences loved the movie and so the gang are back for a sequel, the appropriately titled Hot Tub Time Machine 2. It’s out now and available to order on the right-hand side of this page, so here’s everything you need to know about the sequel…

 

What’s The Plot?

We pick up five years after the events of the first movie with Lou, Jacob and Nick enjoying their success, exploiting their knowledge of the future and becoming very, very rich. But disaster strikes when a party get out of hand and Lou is shot by a mysterious killer, dying before their eyes. Nick and Jacob are faced with no choice, get in the Hot Tub Time Machine and search for the killer – who, it turns out, is from the future...

 

Who’s In It?

Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson and Clark Duke all return to reprise their roles from the first movie, but sadly there’s no return for John Cusack, his spot in the foursome is taken by Parks & Recreation star Adam Scott, who plays the son of Cusack’s character Adam. Chevy Chase, Collette Wolfe and Gillian Jacobs also return while there are also a couple of other killer cameos, but we won’t say who...

 

Does It Deliver?

If you liked the first film, you’ll love this. It’s full of the same big set pieces and a good mix of the surreal and slapstick.

 

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 is out now.
