Simple and well acted, it has tension enough to knot the stomach.
I cannot think of one single thing that I would change about this film. The acting is incomparable, the directing deft, and the writing poignantly brilliant.
Each character in this movie — down to the smallest one — is an individual rather than a type, prone to spontaneous changes of mood and sometimes amusing outbursts of pettiness or ill humor.
In the year that 51% of the British population completely missed the point of being in the EU. It would seem that the diverse tariff free comic genius of Zoolander 2 is also too complicated for many to understand.this film is stupid, funny and intelligent. Like the Simpsons before it became rubbish.
Don Attri perfectly portrays the most ridiculous aspects of hipster. literally contradicting himself with each sentence. His views on equality, justice and gender are genuinely insightful and so well written.I truly do not understand why it isn't getting better reviews. But then I don't understand why some folk wear plastic union jack hats and camp out in the cold all night for the chance to tug a forelock in front of a living representation of classism.This film is brilliant. Enjoy.
This movie is filled with tired jokes about millenials, while being combined with humor that's absolutely abominable, unlikable characters, and with an awful plot.
And, Unlike the original Zoolander which was a masterfully done satire on the fashion industry, this one focuses on making fun of millenials with over done jokes that you could find by looking at your conservative grandmother's facebook page.
Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson are back on the runway as male models Derek Zoolander and Hansel, perhaps sporting a few extra wrinkles around the eyes. The original Zoolander was a sleeper hit, pulling a shocking number of laughs from what seemed like a very thin concept, and its delayed sequel, unfortunately, pales in comparison. Like many folllow-up efforts from the same genre (Austin Powers and The Hangover, I'm looking at you here) Zoolander 2 falls into the trap of constantly re-hashing the gags that worked the first time. Why innovate when the well's right there waiting for your return, after all? What new material it does bring to the screen is often good for a chuckle, but not deep enough to mine for richer material. Benedict Cumberbatch's gender-bending role as a competing supermodel is a great example. We get about three minutes of big laughs from the character, but then he's spent and is cast aside. Even the returning faces seem lighter and less interesting, particularly Will Ferrell's big-haired fashion mogul, Mugatu. They're propped up with sight gags and cheap one-liners, but there's no masking the lack of inspiration in their writing and performance. Humor arrives in sprinkles throughout this film, like a series of not-quite-ready pitches for an upcoming episode of SNL, but that's not good enough to make up for a bland, obvious storyline and an aimless, meandering pair of central character arcs. Pointless and under-cooked, or maybe over-cooked, considering how long it was left to incubate. Whatever the cause, it's a swing and a miss.
I have to say that this movie really took me by surprise. Not 'surprise' as in it wasn't predictable (because it was pretty predictable, lol), but 'surprise' as in I was surprised at how enjoyable and sincere the over-the-top comedy elements were. Usually when I watch an over-the-top comedy, it makes me roll my eyes; but the over-the-top comedy elements in this movie had me genuinely laughing and enjoying the movie from start to finish. These guys aren't out to make you think deeply about life, they are just trying to make you laugh!
