No Amount Of Blue Steel-ing Will Make Zoolander 2 A Good Movie

"Zoolander 2" World Premiere

This movie is so NOT hot right now.

There has been a lot of talk about Zoolander 2, the sequel to the Ben Stiller / Owen Wilson model comedy- including marketing ploys and a very fashionable sneak premiere.  It came out today, and surprise surprise…the thing’s a dud.

Don’t believe me? The thing has 20% on Rotten Tomatoes AND PerezHilton collected all the reviews on the disappointing sequel, so you can check it out for yourself:

Bruce Kirkland, Toronto Sun: “Zoolander No. 2 is a James Bond flick with a frontal lobotomy, a brain-damaging procedure that renders Ben Stiller’s oddball movie into an incoherent and idiotic mess.”

Alonso Duralde, The Wrap: “Scene partners don’t seem to be on the same frequency, and the timing often falls flat, and the result is a movie that – in my audience, anyway – exhausted the good will and anticipation of people who were hoping to be entertained but ultimately capitulated to the general airlessness of the final product.”

Brian Truitt, USA Today: “Stiller’s Derek Zoolander (he of the powerful ‘Blue Steel’ and ‘Magnum’ looks) and Wilson’s Hansel (whose signature expression seems to be ‘Pouty Resting Face’) return for a follow-up comprised of tired in-jokes, a strangely mean-spirited family subplot and a parade of forgettable cameos by A-list celebrities. Moviegoers may wish that Will Ferrell’s megalomaniacal supervillain Mugatu had won in the first Zoolander and saved us from another film with these boneheads.”

Richard Lawson, Vanity Fair: “Yes, Zoolander 2 is that bad, an unending string of creaky pop-culture jokes — a hotel has ‘farm-to-table WiFi,’ because ‘farm-to-table’ and ‘WiFi’ are terms people are using these days –peppered with squicky, uncomfortable outré bits that land badly.”

Christian Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly: “The thing is, if Stiller spent half as much time sharpening the film’s jokes as he did rifling through his Rolodex for celebrity cameos (Willie Nelson, Kiefer Sutherland, Susan Boyle?!), he might’ve coughed up a few laughs. As it is, though, Zoolander 2 is embarrassing, lazy, and aggressively unfunny. The only good news is that at the pace the franchise is moving, we won’t get ‘Zoolander 3′ until 2030.”

Nico Lang, Salon: “If you enjoyed Zoolander, listen to your friend Billy Zane: Toss this one back in the bargain bin where it belongs. This hideous knockoff isn’t just a crime against fashion, it’s an affront to everyone who liked the original.”

And a couple critics were into it, I mean as into it as one might be:

Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle: “Zoolander captured its moment, and so does Zoolander 2. It skewers the preening emptiness of contemporary culture with the help of people who are part of it.”

Jesse Hassenger AV Club: “It’s a bizarre and pointless spectacle, but not an unamusing one.”

The Zoolander 2 World Premiere Was Exactly What You’d Expect

Screen Shot 2016-02-10 at 11.36.35 AM

Models, celebrities and a tongue and cheek look at fashion.

Celebrities gathered to attend the ‘Zoolander 2′ world premiere, which I guess doubled as a fashion show at Alice Tully Hall yesterday in NYC. I’m not sure where the satire begins and the sincerity ends, seeing as despite Justin Theroux looking amazing in his DJ outfit, because all the A list models and actors were there and dressed up. We got Gigi Hadid, Adriana Lima, Kendall Jenner, Anna Wintour, Jennifer Aniston and more and more and more.

Feast your eyes on some of the moments of the big premiere, and tell us whether you’re going to check out the much-anticipated sequel or not!

Kim Basinger Play’s Grey’s Ex Lover In The Next Fifty Shades Of Grey

'Grudge Match' New York Premiere

Anyone seeing the second movie in the Fifty Shades of Grey franchise? The five of you: this post is for y’all:

Universal just locked in its first new cast member to join Fifty Shades Darker and to my surprise, it’s Kim Basinger replacing Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey!

I KID, I KID. Kim just looks like she is in that dapper lil’ suit of hers she wore to an old premiere. In actuality, she’ll be playing the role of Elena Lincoln, Christian Grey’s Business partner and former lover in the E.L James adaptation, sources tell Variety.

Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan are returning to reprise their roles of Anastasia Steele and Grey, respectively. In addition, Universal plans to shoot “Fifty Shades Darker” and the final pic, “Fifty Shades Freed,” back-to-back, so it was important to lock down cast before production began on the sequel. The real question is: who’s gonna see ANY of these movies?
