Hot Tub Time Machine 2
Hot Tub Time Machine 2 continues the adventures begun, obviously, in Hot Tub Time Machine, the modest hit from 2010. On that movie, director Steve Pink and star John Cusack continued a theme that they established in the films Grosse Pointe Blank and High Fidelity, on which they were both co-writers. In all three movies, the Cusack character is deeply unsatisfied with his lot in life and finds that looking into the past -- figuratively or literally -- might hold the key to his future. A passionate, romantic longing drove all three movies, and whatever characters or humor sprung from that basis, all the better.
