Zoolander 2

Critics Consensus

Zoolander No. 2 has more celebrity cameos than laughs -- and its meager handful of memorable gags outnumbers the few worthwhile ideas discernible in its scattershot rehash of a script.

Critic Reviews for Zoolander 2

All Critics (231) | Top Critics (48) | Fresh (51) | Rotten (180)

  • Zoolander 2 takes pains to reference every successful gag you remember from the original, and then embellish them in painful-often offensive, almost always outdated-fashion.

    February 19, 2016 | Full Review…
  • The first film scored a few palpable hits, but the new one barely makes the effort, and the poise of a work like "Funny Face," which both mocked and fêted a devotion to couture, seems an impossible dream.

    February 15, 2016 | Full Review…
  • If you want to see this, see it addled. With a fashion crowd, if that's not an oxymoron. Or something.

    February 14, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • There are some clever bits and the satire is at times scathing but, on the whole, moments of hilarity are like oases in a desert of tedium. When Zoolander 2 isn't funny, the silliness strains the viewer's patience.

    February 14, 2016 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • While all comedies get refined in the editing room, this one feels like it was slapped together there, as Stiller - who also directed - searched for laughs.

    February 12, 2016 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • How bad is Zoolander 2? It's Batman and Robin bad.

Audience Reviews for Zoolander 2

    This is a silly sequel, in that it doesn't pack the laughs of the original. There are so many cameos you loose track, just like the story. Would only recommend for true fans of the original, although you all might be disappointed.

    Although not as funny as the original, "Zoolander 2" is hilarious. Great costumes and hair with some really fun characters (such as Kristen Wiig's character and "Don Atari"), there's a lot to appreciate (and laugh at) in this film. For instance, how can anyone resist laughing at a Neil de Grasse Tyson cameo declaring, "That's what I do. I'm Neil de Grasse Tyson, B-tch!"? The poor critical and audience reviews are not justified in my estimation. I would definitely recommend this film to anyone who enjoyed the first film, or anyone who just wants to see a silly film making fun of fashion, modeling and James Bond.

    Ruining the memory of the original cult hit, Zoolander 2 completely shits itself. The ridiculously dumb comedy and fashion satire of the first film is multiplied times ten here and it doesn't work at all. Without any straight character to ground it, the whole thing becomes total looney tunes. Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson easily slip back into their roles, but the rest of the cast is piss-poor (including Will Ferrell who returns as Mugatu). Zoolander 2 isn't without any laughs, but it's just too insultingly stupid (and not in a fun way).
