I swear it seems like someone is listening to us sometimes. Dustin noted after the first Hot Tub Time Machine trailer got released that it just looked like a rehash of the same crap from Wild Hogs, so what do we get in the second trailer? A vastly funnier looking movie, that even includes the line “didn’t you see Wild Hogs?” I’m telling you, Dustin has some freaky powers or some such. Like he can kill a yak at 200 yards with mind bullets.
Does it look great? Not really, but it’s definitely an improvement over the first trailer. A lot of obvious jokes (“what color is Michael Jackson?”), but some clever bits (like John Cusack getting stabbed in the face after protesting that a woman can’t possibly be breaking up with him because he knows full well that he breaks up with her and then she gets really fat). It definitely feels like the sort of trailer that contains all the best parts of the movie and doesn’t really give much indication of the plot other than “and hijinks ensue.”
