A look at what's new in theaters this week. 

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 (Comedy, R, Starring Rob Corddry, Adam Scott, Craig Robinson, Clark Duke, Gillian Jacobs) - When Lou finds himself in trouble, Nick and Jacob fire up the hot tub time machine in an attempt to get back to the past. But they inadvertently land in the future with Adam Jr. Now they have to alter the future in order to save the past... which is really the present, in the sequel from the same team that brought you the original cult hit.

The DUFF (Comedy, PG-13, Starring Mae Whitman, Robbie Amell, Bella Thorne, Bianca Santos, Skyler Samuels) - Bianca is a content high school senior whose world is shattered when she learns the student body refers to her as 'The DUFF' (Designated Ugly Fat Friend) to her prettier, more popular friends. With her universe turned upside down, she ignores words of wisdom from her favorite teacher and enlists Wesley, a slick but charming jock, to help set her apart from the pack and erase her label forever. In doing so, she hopes to land her crush Toby, and find the confidence to overthrow the school's ruthless label maker Madison by reminding everyone that no matter what people look or act like, we are all someone's DUFF...and that's totally fine.

McFarland, USA (Drama, PG, Starring Kevin Costner, Ramiro Rodriguez, Carlos Pratts, Johnny Ortiz, Rafael Martinez) - A track coach in a small California town transforms a team of athletes into championship contenders.
