Rutherglen Reformer - - The Ticket -

Fif­teen years af­ter the birth of Blue Steel a se­quel to Ben Stiller’s muchloved fash­ion in­dus­try spoof fi­nally ar­rived – but was it worth the wait?

The an­swer is yes... and no. Kick­ing off with what works, Stiller and Owen Wil­son’s Hansel re­main as like­able a dumb dou­ble act as ever.

Will Fer­rell makes a mem­o­rable – if slightly un­der­used – re­turn as the evil Mu­gatu and there are some ace cameos among the cav­al­cade of celebri­ties in­volved.

What doesn’t work, though, is a paper thin plot that’s lit­er­ally all over the place.

There’s no doubt it doesn’t feel as fresh this time around ei­ther and a few of the first flick’s bet­ter jokes are re­cy­cled, to much lesser ef­fect.
