I'm around the same age as my It's Just Banter co-host Jake Kemp. And, for people our age, the first Zoolander movie holds a special place in our hearts.
It's kind of like how people who were in high school when Caddyshack came out are about Caddyshack. You're familiar with the phenomenon.
I think there was a Caddyshack sequel, too. But it didn't come out 15 years after the original like the Zoolander one just did, which makes it a bit of an oddity.
Anyway, all of that is to say that we went to go see the sequel with uncertain expectations. Here, we discuss whether those were met.
