Zoolander 2

Ben Stiller's sequel to his own high-fashion comedy Zoolander, which lifted the lid on the little known world of male modelling. Stiller's Tropic Thunder co-writer Justin Theroux pens the script, while co-stars Owen Wilson and Will Ferrell return.

Stiller told Empire magazine: "It’s ten years later and most of it is set in Europe... though the last movie ended on a happy note a lot of things have happened in the meantime. Their lives have changed and they’re not really relevant anymore. It’s a new world for them. Will Ferrell is written into the script and he’s expressed interest in doing it. I think Mugatu is an integral part of the Zoolander story, so yes, he features in a big way."

Fifteen years ago, Zoolander set the world alight with its comedic blend of satire and silliness. That’s a long, long time in comedy - witness how far the three Austin Powers films fell thanks to oversaturating pop culture (and running out of good gags) in just one third of that. While Ben Stiller’s sequel may explicitly address the time that’s passed, Derek and Hansel are all but forgotten by the world as the film commences, Blue Steel and countless catchphrases have never been anything less than ubiquitous since 2001. Like Mike Myers before him, Stiller’s challenge is to deliver what people want (more of the same) without sliding into the tedium of the imitators Zoolander spawned. The results are mixed, and that’s being charitable.

The orange mocha crappuccino of movie sequels.

More Blue Steel than Magnum, this is a perfectly serviceable sequel, but dogged by repetition, it lacks the original's speed and sizzle.

As funny, silly and lovingly teasing as anyone could have hoped.

Derek and Hansel aren't as hot right now as they used to be. But I still felt some warmth.

There are enough off-beat jokes and gifted performers to ensure a good time.

The imbecilic charms of a character that began as TV sketch material are too often misplaced in this wildly over-plotted, under-energized action comedy, plumped to bursting point with celebrity cameos.

Like its predecessor, the best bits of this sequel are in the isolated moments...

It's a likable mess, although it lacks the memorable lines of the first, making it liable to be enjoyed once and forgotten, rather than revisited for years to come.
