This movie is a toss up. If you didn't like the first installment of this movie, you will most likely not like the second. The first was much better, but this one had it moments. I'd recommend you rent this one first or find it in the $9.99 bin before buying it. I knew what to expect, so i don't regret buying it, but I've only watched it once.
THE SECOND ONE IN A SERIES USUALLY LETS YOU DOWN, BUT THERES ENOUGH GOING ON TO KEEP YOUR ATTENTION. I THOUGHT THE IDEA OF DUMB MODELS WAS GOING TO BE A HARD SELL, BUT IT WORKS. THE CHARACTERS SEEM TO KNOW HOW TO MAKE THE CHEMISTRY WORK. BEN STILLER HAS A GREAT TEAM TO PULL THIS OFF.
Not a big fan of the first film bu the characters are amusing. This follow up is even more on the ridiculous side. Fashion aficionados will enjoy the many references. Overly dependent of cameos, silly and over the top and that's all right.
I think the previews showed the funniest parts but that is typical so I don't hold it against the movie. It did have many other funny parts as well. Not really believable having them as super models at anytime in their lives so keep open mind. It is Hollywood. :-)
Zoolander No. 2 wasn't quite as funny and original as the first. After such a long hiatus you'd think it would have been much better with more originality as the first had, but not the case. Still had to own to complete my set.
