Zoolander 2

The original film was absurd but had some fun moments. Unfortunately, the sequel takes the silliness even further and by the third act reaches peak nonsense levels. It seems like there is an endless slew of cameos in Zoolander 2 and while some are fantastic, others are very bizarre. The film does a great job of summing up what happened in the first instalment for those who have not seen it or need a refresher after 15 years. Male model Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) has become a recluse since the death of his wife, but soon decides to make a comeback with Hansel (Owen Wilson) so he can get custody of his son. Stiller and Wilson know their strengths as comedians but the script, which has too many writers, fails them. Meanwhile, poor Penelope Cruz does nothing except be really, really ridiculously good looking. I am sure there is an audience out there for Zoolander 2, I am just not one of those people.
