Film review: Zoolander 2 starring Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson

Was it really really ridiculously good looking or just a bit average?

So what's it all about, then?

Prepare for the most stupidly ridiculous and over the top film of the century: the highly anticipated Zoolander  seque2oolander. It's outlandish, outrageous and disgracefully silly, and tells the story of Derek and Hansel as they try to figure out who, what and why loads of famous popstars have been murdered. Justin Bieber, Benedict Cumberbatch and Joe Jonas make appearances as Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson's characters fight to save Zoolander's son at the hands of fashion's most elite.

Anyone good in it?

They literally could not have shoehorned anymore big names into Zoolander 2 if they'd tried. We're talking Will Ferrell, Justin Bieber, Eva Mendes, Joe Jonas, Benedict Cumberbatch, Sting, ARIANA GRANDE, Anna Wintour, Jourdan Dunn, Kate Moss, every fashion designer under the sun (oh hai Valentino) and MORE.

What were the highlights please?

Can you tell that we're already obsessed with Justin Bieber's cameo? We were DYING at how good it was. Also notable bits included:

  • "Marc by Marc Jacobs"
  • The water of life advert featuring Naomi Campbell. SO GOOD.
  • Zoolala. Zoolala. Zoolala. 
  • The return of Blue Steel. And Magnum.
  • All the costumes and design - kudos to the actual fashion people behind the film because it was ON FLEEK.
  • Ariana Grande ft. basic bitch gate
  • Literally the whole entire film. We laughed out loud so much the people behind us had to ask us to shut up.

If it won an Oscar, it'd be for..

Being beyond ridiculous, but in a good way. Zoolander 2 doesn't try and pretend to be anything it isn't, and whilst it's arguably not as good as the first film (personal opinion, peeps), it's a total mockery or itself and the fashion industry without being a downright piss take. It's funny and pokes fun at models and designers, but in a way that's ridiculous and funny.

But these bits should have been left on the cutting room floor..

2oolander doesn't feel like it drags on and that's undoubtedly a good thing. It's the perfect length and features enough celebrities to shake a cat at  - but not too many - and really did make us giggle so much our insides hurt. If you're hoping for a deep and meaningful movie epiphany, this isn't one for you. 

Any topless moments I should be aware of?

Nah. BUT JUSTIN BIEBER'S IN IT, ISN'T THAT ENOUGH? But no, apart from a very weirdly tattooed Will Ferrell in a fat suit, all torsos are kept under wraps in this one.

Overall verdict:

FOUR STARS****
