Yes you read that right. Zoolander 2.
It’s incredible to think that it’s been so long since Zoolander first came to screen and made Blue Steel and Magnum part of modern culture.
Perhaps you’ve never seen the first movie, well grab some popcorn and friends and settle in.
Zoolander 2 continues when we didn’t know how they could.
Penelope Cruz joins the leads, an ex swimwear model now Interpol agent .. Yes you read that right.
There are some great cameos and spoofs of other movies – subtly done and while it builds slowly, the whole cinema cracked up more than once.
For us this was a slow and unexpected surprise which made a great Sunday matinee movie.
This won’t win any best movies ever, but if you want to switch off and enjoy some fun then this maybe the movie for you.
We’re still stunned they managed to get Sting, Justin Bieber, Tommy Hilfigger and many more.
There’s also some classic product shots Uber.
So why the big names ? Perhaps enjoying the joke and for their kids / grandkids… ?
So, without spiking the plot.. Yes there is some cheesy weak acting moments, however if you like your fashion fabulous, and you want to laugh and let go for a bit, then maybe Zoolander 2 is for you.
