So glad I rewatched the first Zoolander before watching this sequel, as I got all the references to the first movie I likely wouldn't have all these years later.
Much prefer this to the original. I laughed more in the first half hour than I did the whole first movie. Abundant celebrity cameos add to the fun but do not a punchline make.
Still, silly fun throughout.
Rewatched as part of my Best of Warner Bros. 100 Film Collection initiative.
Saw this almost thirty years ago as a kid for family movie night and that barn raising scene left a lasting impression. If you have seen this movie, you know how amazing it is. If you haven't, it is entirely worth your time to see. Seriously - you want to see the big barn raising sequence, and then you likely will want to watch it again sometime…

My kids and I watched and they liked this by far
Oompa Loompa doom-pa-dee-do
This movie's still great and is one of those few
It's a film that's aged well
after all's said and TOLD
A film that still works for the young
and the OLD
I'm glad that I could share this with my girl and my BOY
They're smiles and laughs --- that tells me it gave them some joy
Oompa Loompa doom-pa-dee-dee
If you are wise, you'll listen to me
You will rewatch this as soon as you can
And I give this a doom-pa, loom-pa
Being a lifelong James Bond movie fan, I have seen and read more than my fair share of Bond "making of" and "behind the scenes" materials. On top of that, I recently researched and reviewed all the Bond films in 2012 for the Now Playing Podcast's James Bond movie retrospective series, so all the information is still fresh in my mind. So the subtitle of "The Untold Story of 007" doesn't apply to me; there is absolutely no new information…
