Let’s face it, we’ve all dreamed about traveling back in time to make right some wrongs, relive our favorite moments or change something about our past. In honor of the release of Hot Tub Time Machine 2 this Friday, February 20th, our team collected a list of places and faces you and your bros would NOT want to see on your journey back through space. Take a look below and be sure to head to a theater near you this Friday to catch Hot Tub Time Machine 2.
1. The Jurassic Period
You may think that dinosaurs are cool and all, but can you imagine walking out the front rock of your cave and being greeted by a sabertooth tiger? No thanks, back in my time traveling hot tub please…
2. The Great Depression
The time period says it all – people were greatly depressed! The American economy was completely abysmal and the average household income dropped 40% from $2,300 to $1,500. Things were so bad, unemployed men would wait in line for hours at soup kitchens just to receive a free coffee and donut.
3. High School
No matter what anyone says, you are not at your peak in high school. Acne, raging hormones and insecurities galore, you’re really just this angsty hot mess trying to survive in a world with people who think they’re cooler than you. Sorry hot tub but please keep me out of those 2003-2007 years.
4. The Revolutionary War
Even the guys from Hot Tub Time Machine 2 don’t want to go back here!
5. Your First Bad Break Up
Remember that time your “awesome” significant other turned out to be a huge jerk and dumped you for no reason at all? Remember how you stayed in bed for weeks wearing those ratty sweatpants, eating three day old pizza, listening to Beyonce’s “If I were a Boy” on repeat? Don’t go back there. You’re better than that.
6. Medieval Times
We’re not talking about the fun restaurant where you eat chicken with your fingers and cheer for the blue knight. We’re talking about the Middle Ages where men wore corsets, eating a hunk of bread could kill you and bridges did not exist. Don’t even get me started on the torture methods. Ever heard of Heretics Fork?!
7. When Your First Pet Died
We all had a puppy, kitten or goldfish who was our best friend. You grow up and love that little critter so much. He sleeps on your bed, cuddles with you on the couch, plays with you outside – he’s basically the most loyal creature in your entire life. Until one day he gets old and your mom tells you that Rover went to live on a farm with plenty of space to run around…or was that just me?
8. The Vietnam War
I mean…this is pretty self explanatory.
9. Your First Car Accident
I totaled my car a few years ago and I have no desire at all to go back in time to revisit that scene, not to mention the huge bill that came along with it. Hey hot tub, can we fast forward through that moment in my life please? Thanks!
10. The 2013 VMAs
You can’t forget it if you tried, so why revisit it?
