Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Zoolander 2 -- the highly anticipated sequel to star Ben Stiller's 2001's silly but edgy modeling comedy Zoolander -- has a lot of similar content, from violence and mayhem played for laughs to jokes about orgies (and tons of cameos, natch). While there's no graphic nudity or actual simulated sex on display, the orgy scenes involve groups that include men, women, and animals. There's other innuendo, breast-size jokes, and sexual references as well. Characters are shot and stabbed, and other murders are planned. There's some swearing, including one "f--k," as well as social drinking and plenty of blatant product placement. Jokes are made at the expense of a kid who's overweight.
Plenty of innuendo, and several jokes about both breast size and orgies. No graphic nudity/simulated sex in the orgy scenes, but the groupings include women, men, and animals; related discussion of the resulting pregnancies (a turn of events that freaks one character out). After a character flashes her cleavage, two men are visibly aroused. One scene shows character briefly touching a woman's (clothed) breast at her invitation. A man inadvertently tells a kid about a sexual encounter the man had with the kid's mother.
A gunshot draws blood and ultimately kills its victim. One character wants to blow up a room full of famous fashion folks out of sheer spite and bitterness. A man throws a knife at another, stabbing him in the cheek; the same knife is later used to stab someone in the thigh. Though blood is shown, these scenes are intended to be funny.
Strong but relatively infrequent language includes "s--t," "bitch," "a--hole," and one "f--k."
While there's a lot of shallow behavior on display (as well as jokes at others' expense, including a character who's overweight), underneath the surface is the idea that sometimes when you're down and out, there's nowhere to go but up. Also, don't be defeated by challenges; instead, regroup and come up better and wiser.
