Far too much of the film feels a laundry list of references to the original.

While not a film likely to have a lot in the way of staying power, I still enjoyed Zoolander 2, the sequel reminding me that Stiller is a creatively inspired director who should probably step behind the camera more often than he right now does.

Failing to tap into practically any of the charm of its predecessor is Zoolander 2, a supposed comedy devoid of practically any creativity and humor.

One of the most unnecessary sequels of all time (yes, I've seen Speed 2).

Agonizingly paced and bewilderingly outdated, Ben Stiller's long-awaited sequel is a sad march through every single joke from the 2001 original.

Silly jokes and A-list cameos pass the time, but it's pretty much more of the same from Ben Stiller, Luke Wilson, Will Ferrell and the rest of the gang.

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every successful gag you remember from the original, and then embellish them in painful-often offensive, almost always outdated-fashion.

Stumbles down the runway like an overdressed supermodel with two left feet.

Walking out of Zoolander 2 was the obvious choice...

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.

If you want to see this, see it addled. With a fashion crowd, if that's not an oxymoron. Or something.

This baggy, back-slapping sequel fails to recapture the magic that made the original a quotable hit.

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.

Anna Wintour and Valentino join in on the very obvious gags about their industry, acknowledging that Ben Stiller's preening and witless runway "satire" contains nothing to make them remotely uncomfortable.

It's all a bit of a mess and just not funny. Anyone who hasn't seen the first film will wonder what on earth is going on.

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.

How bad is Zoolander 2? It's Batman and Robin bad.
Feb 12, 2016
It is merely dumb when it should be knowingly dumb; satirically dull when it should be sharp; and just plain ugly when it should be, at the very least, aesthetically minded.

Amounts to a parade of celebrity cameos masquerading as a movie.

Kind of like fashion itself, we don't really care whether "Zoolander 2″ is any good. We go because it is silly fun.
