2oolander: Why I Like Number 2

I took my 17 year old and his buddy to see 2oolander tonight, and we laughed through the entire movie. In fact, the whole theater did. I found all of the cameos amusing; beginning with Justin Bieber and ending with Tommy Hilfiger. I was impressed that Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson looked just about the same, 15 years after the original. I love to look at Penelope Cruz in anything; a bikini, Glamour magazine, a movie sequel. What’s not to love? Zoolander2 was exactly what I expected- cheap laughs at celebrities’ expense floating along a thin, ridiculous plot. Just like the first movie.

I went online to get a promo photo of the movie and found out that most reviews are unfavorable. People are disappointed in Zoolander 2. I don’t understand why. I wasn’t expecting it to be seriously funny. I was expecting it to be really, really, ridiculously good looking, and it was.

About K.P. Rennie

I generally only write reviews about books that I am inspired to read more than once, so my book reviews aren't about new releases that I liked, they are about tried and true books that I LOVE. I favor quirky stories, inspirational memoirs, and real life drama. There are many movies and books that I have enjoyed more than once. If you liked any of these, we probably have similar taste- Books: Peter Pan, Choke, A Life Without Consequences, Fight Club, The Adderall Diaries, Lets Pretend This Never Happened, The Glass Castle, Another Bullshit Night in Suck City, Wild, The Tribes of Palos Verdes, Just Kids, Movies: Little Miss Sunshine, Seven Psychopaths, Ghost World, Pulp Fiction, Hook, Big Fish, Reservoir Dogs, Moonrise Kingdom, Being John Malcovich, I am President of The Fun Zone; The Center for the Study of Funism.
