In 2001, Zoolander was unleashed in all of its goofball idiocy upon the cinema-going public. It was nonsense, but good fun and critically – pretty funny.
Zoolander 2 isn’t.
As much fun as I’m sure it was to be in, for Zoolander 2’s impressive star-studded cast, the question simply has to be asked:
Penelope Cruz, Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig, Billy Zane, Macauly Culkin, Justin Bieber, Kim Kardashian, Willy Nelson, Sting, Kanye West, Lenny Kravitz, Lewis Hamilton, Susan Boyle, to name but a few…. what WERE you all thinking?
Mildly amusing moments are scarce, but they do exist if you really concentrate, and it’s only therefore fair to admit that Zoolander 2 is not entirely awful, but it comes as close as it’s physically possibly to get to that without actually touching.
Thank me later.
