His nonstop obnoxious jerkass streak and overall sociopathic self-destructive tendencies that often put him and his friends in peril lead the rest of the gang to despise him greatly despite still choosing to hang around him. Even his own son and wife as seen in the sequel if Lou continued his ways found him to be a "virus" and want nothing to do with him.

* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: The titular hot tub repeatedly draws attention to this trope and straddles a strange line between playing it straight and parodying it in the character of the Hot Tub repair man, who may just be a {{cloudcuckoolander}} repair man, or may be some sort of TimePolice setting the time travelers on their way. Jacob even lampshades it, by noting that the repairman's words perfectly support either theory, and asks if it would kill the repairman to just give him a straight answer.
