This is the kind of movie that will make you want to go back in time – to the moment before you made the rash decision to start watching it. The film-makers don't waste any time in explaining the characters or the set-up to anyone who didn't see Hot Tub Time Machine back in 2010, preferring instead to leave us in a state of bewilderment which only deepens the further the film progresses.

Lou (Rob Corddry), an obnoxious internet magnate, is shot "in the dick" and travels into the future to 2024 with his equally obnoxious friend Nick (Craig Robinson) and sarcastic son Jacob (Clark Duke) to save his manhood. There are lots of jokes about other movies (in particular The Terminator), lots of smutty slapstick and lots of resoundingly unfunny one-liners. Yes, the time does pass very slowly.
