During the day of the fashion show, Hansel and Derek were surprised to discover that the change in the fashion world is being dominated by the likes of Don Atari with the no-binary gendered All. They were placed on the runway in the “Old” and the “Lame” outfits and were soaked by the large pail of prunes. After that, Alexanya congratulated them with their performance.


The Writers’ View:

In this movie, the cast were all good in their performances. Hansel and Derek were still in the same characters and also they performed them with interests and Mugatu did well also. Unfortunately, there are some things that is not pretty much pleasing, like the humor that did not work that well. This kind of movie is an example of the beliefs that bigger will not always mean better. The first Zoolander was a small comedy film and with relatively too small budget where it evolved being a cult movie. Meanwhile, the Zoolander 2 attempted on being bigger than the initial one and but sadly, it doesn’t work that well, because this sequel is about Derek, who attempts on locating his son, while the male models were being killed, and it actually didn’t pay off that good in the end.

The Story Line:

maxresdefault

It is stated in the outline of a musical record, Conner Friel is the musical prodigy at his early age, and he creates a rap group they called The Style Boyz, together with his childhood buddies Lawrence and Owen. They instantly gain popularity in the industry of music, motivating today’s musicians. But, failing to gain credits for writing guest verse of Conner on the Poppy-successful single of “Turn Up the Beef”, then Lawrence leaves.

Right after the Style Boyz was split-up; Conner became the solo act, taking with the identity “Conner4Real”, together with Owen is the DJ. Lawrence started farming in Colorado right after a failed trial on going solo. The debut album of Conner’s Thriller, too, rockets to the highest of the diagram and Conner’s popularity increases. In year 2015, Conner introduced the sophomore album, the Conquest, it gains awful reviews because of Conner applying hundreds of producers instead of Owen’s beats. Having sales that are surprisingly low, Harry, Conner’s manager, suggested having Aquaspin, the manufacturer that sponsor the tour and creates home appliances. The company’s appliances started playing the songs of Conner, causing the countrywide power outage which generated the wave of backlash to Conner’s fans.

Conner started with the album tour, and the show did not sell well as he was hoping. Harry suggested that they appointed Hunter the Hungry, a hip-hop artist as a beginning act, and the sales of tickets started to rise. Conner begins to add some new gimmicks with his acting, with the robotic mask of Owen, publicizing his rapport with the actress Ashley Wednesday and a stage trap where he alters his costumes in seconds just behind the curtain. The trick is apparently spoiled in Nashville, when Conner turned into a naked mid – concert, hence becoming the topic of mockery.


The Writers’ View:

This is absolutely one of the great movies! The documentary is loveable with popular rappers and musicians that add-on to the satire. The story is so attacking for it is really true with the song writing skills of music nowadays. If you have the best beat, throw in a group of catch sayings a very cool voice, and add one more popular singer to back up the couple of lines and then you’ve got a new rap/hip hop song. I completely recommend with this very entertaining movie for anybody to enjoy and sit back great comedy movie.

The story is about an overachieving blind guy Robbie, together with his unaccomplished sibling Bill, they were competing to win the same woman, Rose. The rivalry of two brothers arrived at a fever pitch while on their charity swim contest.

Robbie is a winner blind athlete and also a local philanthropic brave man doted on by their society and seemingly not capable of doing wrong. His evidently well-earned egoism was fed by his numerous, televised campaign to rise over his incapability while also putting up some cash for charity, where right after every victorious feat, he is bordered by gushing journalists who seemed not to notice that he is telling unchanged joke every time…”You look gorgeous today,” Robbie is a blind guy that is telling every female associate of the press. Robbie’s unassuming, hapless brother Bill is aware that the actual Robbie is arrogant, rude, and selfish but still, he guide-dog loyally runs each marathon by the side of Robbie and never creates a peep when he does not takes any accolades, or even when their own parents repeatedly criticize him.

One evening, Bill flee the harsh Robbie- worship by striking up a local bar, where in spite of all his finest efforts to represent himself as unappealing and unworthy, he gets so lucky with a like hearted and an attractive lady known as Rose. Bill is blame-ridden since the blindness of Robbie was the outcome of their childhood accident and he was involved. Then, Rose is also a guilt-ridden since right after she notifies her fiancé that she wanted to break him; he anxiously crossed the road and was then hit and killed by the coming bus.


The Writers’ View:

There are many writers that gave a positive feedback about this movie and so do I. The movie takes an apparently dark basis about a guy of few qualities that tries to take ahead with his over-success blind brother’s girlfriend, and then it became a featherweight play as winningly unimpressive as the core couple played by Slate and Kroll. This is way how the two passionate stars in the movie bring in themselves with other, and who will not love them immediately. The story itself is genuinely creative, unlike the other movies at this fair.

He united with Finnegan, Roper, Dale and Plummer traveling in the college grounds by auto, looking to their father with some female students.

The following morning, Beuter left briefly for their home, anxious that his girlfriend was pregnant.


The Writers’ View:

The movie was really perfect for it consists of minor or more than a group of overly-aggressive jocks joking with the other, attempting to get laid and partying over the course of 3 days just before school will begin. It’s cleverly written, well-acted, fun, and well-shot. All movies have a slice of fashion existence: the opening of a movie doesn’t even try to explain what is taking place and the finale of the movie hardly describes what took place beforehand. The film is somewhat meditative, and yet constantly searching for stimulus in the biggest and tiniest things, whatever type of stimulus can really take their hands on to.

The Writers’ View:

The funniest character of all in the movie is James Martin. He stole each scene he is in and very time he was shown on the screen, you will not stop laughing. Sadly, he is not in lots of the movie, and the remaining of the film’s humor came in the form of concise liners at the finale of each scene. There were no weak links within the cast, and they all did a great acting with the character that were given to them, but there is still room for improvement and they can still do it better, if they only wanted it to. The film moves at an extremely slow pace, although, it is not really that bad at all. If you are someone that absolutely adored period dramas from the standpoint of a Jane Austen image, then you will probably get more out from this film, but otherwise there is not much anything to expect here.

On April 27, the filming resumed together with Efron, who was preparing for the scenes.


The Writers’ View:

The viewers absolutely loved and adored this film and maybe some can’t wait for the sequel of it if they have any plans on making one. The movie is for sure to bring out the sense of humor to the crowd, although for now that seems pretty common with some other experts and practiced comedians. Although, the movie is not the type that Deniro normally does, but he really did a great job here in performing his part. The movie is really funny from beginning up to the end.

For some older crowd that went to watch this and found this movie too offensive or there is something offending in it, but for sure they will understand it somehow. The movie is not the type to watch together with the kids, but still, it is highly recommended, especially if you are someone don’t get offended easily and have that sense of humor just like the many of us!

In a close by rock bar, Amy meets a sexually-active, laid back, single mom, Carla, and Kiki, the stay-at-home mother of four children, adores Amy’s disagreement with Gwendolyn. Carla and Amy were irritated to find out that Kiki’s spouse is domineering and expected her to be careful with the kids and the house chores, having no assistance at all, while Kiki and Amy were disturbed by Carla’s very accommodating approach with her parenting.

Amy herself decided to begin dating, but discovers herself really inexperienced because of her early marriage and early motherhood. She finally ended up striking a linked with Jessie, the handsome widower in their school who had a crush over her.


The Writers’ View:

This is one more sample of how a fine comedy is a lot harder to create than an action flick or a good drama. I was pulled along with this film by a buddy anticipating that it might not be as hard and tough as the TV trailers and posts are suggesting. The movie will somewhat surprise the viewers, though it will not  make you care that much for the actors and not that funny to make you laugh and create some outlay about the story, but still it failed to have some points to be funny. Since there are some poor dialogue and performances, but honestly, there can be room for improvement for a better high quality film.
