When Lou tries to hit Chevy Chase with a golf putter when they first arrive in the future, Chevy says "na nana na nana na", which is a reference to Caddyshack (1980). See more »
After Lou apologizes to the Smart car, the guys drive to Lou's place. When they exit the car, only Lou and Jacob get out. Nick is already standing behind the car, pretending to exit. The Smart car is a ForTwo model, and only fits two people. Hence the name. It also has no trunk space to speak of. It couldn't have transported all three guys together. See more »
Jacob is my cousin, and Uncle Lou...
Don't you ever call me that.
...is my uncle! And they came here in a... uh... what was it?
Lou, Nick, Jacob:
Hot Tub Time Machine.
Oh, okay. So I guess you came here in a Hot Tub Time Machine, too.

Instead of the lion roaring, the MGM logo has the sound of a phone ringing, and a quizzical "huh?" grunt. See more »
Who really went into this expecting a masterpiece? Was the first one any better? Nah, not really. Sequels always face harsh criticism, but as far as ridiculous movies with sequels go, this one really isn't that bad. Lighten up, it's a comedy.
I got a lot of laughs from this movie. I got a lot of laughs out of all the "future" advancements we've made as a society. From "smart cars" that get the O.K. to execute people, the scary (but kinda fun looking) club scene, to the hilarious TV shows we all (probably legitimately) have to look forward to. The end credits are also worth sticking around for, these fools changing American history in photographs is just fun.
Most of the criticisms I've read here are about bad plot, stupid storyline, etc... Quit trying to be some newspaper critic. You're not going to get recruited to a "My BFE Town Today" column off Amazon. It's a silly movie, if you expected more, you should stick to the films that are worthy of judging and criticism.
If you want some laughs, with actors you don't expect anything else from, give this movie an hour and a half of your time.
