Hot Tub Time Machine 2
It turns out John Cusack can turn down movies. More on that in a second. Starring the rat tag utterly motley crew cast of Cusack, Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson and Clark Duke, no one in a million years dreamed that 2010's "Hot Tub Time Machine" was going to be a hit, let alone a pretty funny and a pretty good comedy. It beat the odds, and as directed by Steve Pink (co-writer of “Grosse Pointe Blank” and “High Fidelity”) it delivered ridiculous, vulgar and absurd laughs. As silly as the premise was, hell, it worked.

In the spring of 2010, a not-so-brilliant, hare-brained idea was announced: a remake of Troma Entertainment's campy, super low-budget, sex-filled 1984 B-movie (or is that Z-movie?) "The Toxic Avenger." With genius Akiva Goldsman ("I Am Legend," "Mr. & Mrs. Smith"), on board, the reconstituted idea was to make a family friendly pro-environment PG-13 movie. And who better to front the green movement than a deformed mop-wielding superhero from New Jersey?

It was only last year that Billy Bob Thornton expressed a sure opinion when he confirmed a sequel to the 2003 film “Bad Santa,” and true to his word, the project has steadily been rolling along. Dimension Films even hired two separate writers, John Rosenthal and John Phillips, to deliver competing scripts to ensure maximum comedy potential, but as the film finally finds a director at the forefront, it also finds the same man giving another pass at the text.

If at first you don't succeed, try try again. And in the case of Troma's "The Toxic Avenger," they are yet again trying to find a way to make the trashy '80s guilty pleasure culturally relevant. If you remember, there was a failed cartoon series on Fox in 1991, and if you think back really hard, you might even recall seeing the Toxie action figure in the sea of Ninja Turtle and X-Men toys. Well, as first reported last spring, producer Akiva Goldsman has the bright idea to just reboot the whole thing for a PG-13 feature.
