Hot Tub Time Machine 2 is a Bust

Hot Tub Time Machine 2, the sequel to the cult hit Hot Tub Time Machine, opened up to crickets this weekend at the box office. What a dismal weekend box office performance for this mediocre comedy movie. It is flopping hard to get recognized for its cheap jokes and thrills.

On Friday night, HTTM 2 collected a lousy $2.3 million, projecting its weekend box office results in the $5.8-$6.3 million range. With a $14 million production budget, HTTM 2 better flop harder in the weeks to come. We seriously doubt this dark comedy has any legs to walk on without John Cusack.

HTTM 2 is failing to capture the success of the original, which we believe is attributed to poor quality writing, directing, acting, and most notably, multi-talented John Cusack is absent from this sequel.

Time Machine producers should have left the original alone. What a wasted effort. We can make a list of 100 things to do with $14 million and none of them involve making Hot Tub Time Machine 2. The movie preview of HTTM 2 shown in theaters warned us to stay away.
