Hot Tub Time Machine 2

Director: Steve Pink
Year Released: 2015
Rating: 0.5

The original movie, about four guys who get smashed in a hot tub and end up back in time, would of course get its own sequel, and this one not only nixes John Cusack's character (for the most part ... he has one scene in the extended cut) but offers the distinct pleasure of making absolutely zero logical sense ... even on its own level. There are a lot of dumb jokes and sight-gags in this - from the cringe-inducing homophobic TV show scene, to seeing Adam Scott having his testicles pierced with a needle, to seeing one character have his genitals shot off, to showing Craig Anderson try (and fail) to parody a Lisa Loeb video - and there isn't a lot to take away from it, but I will say that Rob Corddry deserves some kind of praise for making his hedonistic jerk character so unrepentant: sure, the movie sucks, but good ol' Rob at least tries having fun with it. If you're going to get paid to play an asshole in straight-to-video garbage, relish every second of your asshole-dom. The Daily Show prepared him well.
