From IMDb: “Derek and Hansel are modelling again when an opposing company attempts to take them out from the business.”

Poster Rating: D / C / C- / C+ (5) / C

Review: (#1) Trying to recreate the style of perfume and haute couture ads fits, but looks staged and entirely unfunny. (#2) It shows off the characters’ vacuous natures, but there’s nothing else particularly compelling about it (#3) This is a better use of perfume advertising, but it just doesn’t have any visual flair. (#4-#8) These character posters may not look much alike, but they are stylistically similar enough to make them a fitting collection even if not visually resplendent. (#9) This poster seems a bit silly, but also not as bland as the first design. It works, but not particularly well.

Trailer Rating: C / C

Review: (#1) This teaser has been out for awhile. I saw it for the first time at the movie theater and I was thoroughly bored with it. Certainly they are trying to play this off as a dumb comedy, but the gimmick only works so far before crumbling under its own stupidity.

(#2) This doesn’t try out any gimmicks, making it more interesting. The plot is also a little more evident, but the idiotic humor on display isn’t particularly funny. I’m not even sure if fans of the original will feel like giving it the time of day.
