When Lou (Rob Corddry), who has become the "father of the Internet," is shot by an unknown assailant, Jacob (Clark Duke) and Nick (Craig Robinson) fire up the time machine again to save their friend...Hot Tub Time Machine 2 is a fun romp. Mindless humor and outrageous site gags propel the thin plot along and the cast seem to be enjoying themselves and play off of each other like old friends. If you liked Hot Tub Time Machines, then you will likely enjoy number 2 as well. Rob Corddry is up to his old tricks as Lou who hasn't met a drug or drink he hasn't ingested, but is still one of the richest men in the world.Craig Robinson as Nick who is now music super star thanks to his ripping off hits from talented star from his past , Clark Duke as the put upon Jacob is funny and the heart of the team.
John Cusack's Adam character is missing from the sequel but his story was told in the first film and we have his son Adam Jr. played by Adam Scott to play straight man to the other three, but the naive Adam Jr holds his own. The plot involves several time jumps, shot gun blasts to the groin and redemption.
