In this image released by Paramount Pictures, Ben Stiller portrays Derek Zoolander, left, and Owen Wilson portrays Hansel in a scene from, “Zoolander 2.” (Wilson Webb/Paramount Pictures via AP) In this image released by Paramount Pictures, Kristen Wiig portrays Alexanya Atoz in a scene from, “Zoolander 2.” (Wilson Webb/Paramount Pictures via AP) Of course, unlike Fashion Week, every element of “Zoolander 2,” both directed and co-written by Stiller, is aimed at being silly and ridiculous — like the original 15 years ago, yet more so. And “yet more so” ends up being the problem. This sequel ups the ante so aggressively and relentlessly that you may find yourself pining for a relaxing night in front of a 2001-era TV, watching the original on a VHS tape.That’s not to say that there aren’t moments when you’ll laugh out loud, especially when your favorite celebrity or designer appears for a cameo (is there anyone Stiller COULDN’T get to appear in his film?) But eventually you’ll start to feel like your smile is sort of freezing on your face (Botox or no Botox); in your heart, you’ve just stopped laughing.But boy, those cameos. We begin with none other than Justin Bieber, chased through the streets of Rome for unknown reasons and gunned down, bullets riddling his body like in a “Godfather” film. Before succumbing, though, he manages to send a duck-faced selfie to his fans.This prologue sets up the international intrigue part of the movie, but all you need to know is that Penelope Cruz (looking great) is the head of Interpol’s Global Fashion Division, and she’s trying to track down why so many rock stars are being killed (buh-bye, Boss!)Now back to the U.S., where our familiar heroes, male models Derek (Stiller) and Hansel (Owen Wilson), are living in seclusion on separate coasts — Derek alone, in the snowy wilds of “extremely northern New Jersey,” and Hansel in the sandy desert known as Malibu, where he lives with Orgy, a group of possessive lovers including women of various ages, an animal, and — playing himself —Kiefer Sutherland.Years ago, it turns out, catastrophe struck Derek’s “Center for Kids Who Can’t Read Good,” and the result, among other things, was a rift with Hansel. But now, the men are suddenly summoned to Rome to walk in a fashion show hosted by mega-tycoon Alexanya Atoz (Kristen Wiig, unrecognizable, channeling Donatella Versace and murdering vowels each time she opens her inflated lips).Reunited, the two discover that the designer they’re appearing for, Don Atari (Kyle Mooney), is a millennial who endlessly spouts trendy jargon. In one genuinely funny jibe at fashion designers, Atari’s holding his runway show not at the lovely Trevi Fountain, but at an abandoned medical waste facility (“Totally toxic, but chill,” he notes.) Benedict Cumberbatch shows up here, spoofing gender fluidity as a character named “All.” (A transgender joke? That’s nothing; this movie also squeezes in a Malala gag.)Anyway, soon the guys are pulled into the plot involving those rock-star murders, and a possible actual Fountain of Youth. This is where Mugatu (Will Ferrell) comes in. Remember him? Well, he’s in jail — fashion jail. Once he gets out, we’re ready for the final confrontation, where suddenly every designer you’ve ever heard of appears.Valentino? Check. Hilfiger too. The Wangs — Alexander AND Vera. Marc Jacobs. And of course, the doyenne of fashion, Vogue editor Anna Wintour, gamely doing comedy. The quantity of all these cameos — we haven’t even told you about the rock stars — is impressive.Yet, like too many blinding sequins on a runway gown, quantity can be a bit stifling, too.“Zoolander 2,” a Paramount release, is rated PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America “for crude and sexual content, a scene of exaggerated violence, and brief strong language.” Running time: 102 minutes. Two stars out of four.Definition of PG-13: Parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.Follow Jocelyn Noveck on Twitter at https://www.Twitter.com/JocelynNoveckAP

– Return to Top – McNeese State 63, Abilene Christian 56LAKE CHARLES, La. – Poor free throw shooting in Southland Conference play has been all too familiar for the McNeese Cowboys. Things didn’t change any on Tuesday night against Abilene Christian as the Cowboys misfired on 19 of 36 attempts. However, the game did not come down to free throws as the Cowboys picked up their first conference win of the season with a 63-56 score over the Wildcats. Sam Houston State 62, Nicholls 39THIBODAUX, La. – Dakarai Henderson and Aurimas Majauskas each scored 12 points to lead Sam Houston State to a 62-39 men’s basketball victory over Nicholls Tuesday in Thibodaux, La. Nicholls, now 4-11 for the year and 1-4 in league play, was held to 32.4 percent shooting from the field (12-of-37) and were out-rebounded by the Bearkats 35-28. Desharick Guidry notched his 12th double-double of the season with a game-high 21 points while tying a career-best with 16 rebounds. Kevin Hardy added 19 points and eight rebounds while Jamaya Burr scored 11. The Colonels opened the second half with a 7-4 run but Sam Houston quickly closed the door. The Bearkats eventually built a 33-point lead, 59-26, with 7:26 remaining. A&M-Corpus Christi came out red-hot from the field against the Demons’ 3-2 zone and was aggressive from beyond the 3-point line, hitting four of its first five to take a 12-7 lead on Pye’s triple at the 16:35 mark. Both teams continued their aggression on the offensive end, trading baskets to a 15-13 Islanders lead at the 14:30 mark. McNeese then missed eight straight free throws but made up for it on the defensive end by allowing the Wildcats to just three missed shots and three turnovers in that three minute span. Austin Lewis put a stamp on the game with a two-handed slam off a pass from Burr, then Burr put the icing on the cake with a fast break layup with 39 seconds to play to make it 61-54. The Wildcats never led by more than four points (that coming at 6-2) and after leading 14-13 following Williams’ second trey of the night with 6:54 to play, the Cowboys put together a 13-4 run to close out the half. Hardy gave the Cowboys a 10-point lead right out of the gate in the second half with a layup that made it 29-19 but ACU answered with a 7-0 run to cut the gap to 29-26. McNeese never relinquished the lead in the second half but was threatened several times, even after it went up by 14 after a Hardy dunk with 11:02 to play to make it 49-35 to cap an 11-1 run. The Cowboys will hit the road once again on Saturday when they visit Northwestern State then will play at Incarnate Word on Monday. A&M-Corpus Christi continued its strong offensive performance after the break, with a Pye jumper stretching the lead to 16. The lead then fluctuated between 14 and 17 over the next several minutes, with a Thomas layup pushing the Islanders advantage to 62-46 at the 16:28 mark. McNeese State 63, Abilene Christian 56Texas A&M-Corpus Christi 88, Northwestern State 76Sam Houston State 62, Nicholls 39 The Demons responded with five straight points to cut the lead back to 11, but the Islanders scored the next seven, two on a steal-and-layup by Ehab Amin and the final blow a triple from Pye that pushed the lead to a game-high 18. The Islanders eventually pushed it to a 19-point lead, 73-54, with 11:20 to play. The teams traded points over the next several possessions, with NSU cutting it to as little as eight on two occasions, including an 80-72 score with 2:28 left. The Islanders then got two free throws from Jordan, and a block by Thomas on the ensuing possession led to a Thomas layup that put the lead at 12. Marvin Frazier got one point back at the line, then Thomas tipped in his own miss to stretch the lead to 13, and the Islanders capped it off in style. West was stripped by Emmanuel Toney, sending Jordan forward for a breakaway dunk to push the lead to 15 and effectively ice the game. Northwestern State closed the game by hitting three free throws before the final buzzer. The Islanders will now play five of their next six games on the road, beginning with a Saturday tilt against New Orleans at Lakefront Arena on Jan. 24 at 6:15 p.m. – Return to Top – One other bucket by ACU and a couple of free throws by Matthew Moss and Hardy capped the scoring. The win extends the Bearkats’ winning streak to eight games and ups the men’s Southland record to 6-0. The victory sets up a showdown for first place in the league when the Sam Houston men play host to 5-0 Stephen F. Austin Saturday afternoon at Bernard G. Johnson Coliseum. Zeek Woodley had a strong offensive performance, leading all scorers with 24 points. Jalan West added 15 and Tra’von Joseph poured in 13. The Islanders won the battle of the boards, 36-21, on the strength of 17 offensive rebounds. Jabari Peters, who had scored 21 points in each of Sam Houston‘s last two victories, led the Kats in rebounds with seven but did not score. Michael Holyfield and Kaheem Ransom both added eight points to the SHSU effort. Holyfield totaled six rebounds and had two blocks. Texas A&M-Corpus Christi 88, Northwestern State 76CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – John Jordan posted his fourth career double-double, scoring 22 points and dishing out 11 assists to lead four players in double figures as the Texas A&M-Corpus Christi men’s basketball team downed Northwestern State 88-76 on Tuesday at the American Bank Center. But the Islanders had one more push in them before the break. After expanding the lead to nine at 44-35, the Islanders went on a 6-1 run to get the game to 50-36 in the final minute. The Demons got a jumper from Joseph with 14 seconds left, but Jordan added an exclamation point, cutting through the defense all the way to the rim, finishing a reverse layup to send it to the break with the Islanders leading 52-38. Lewis added three blocks to give him 102 in his career to become the eighth player in school history to reach the century mark. Northwestern State then went into a press and the Islanders hit a cold spell offensively, scoring just one point over the next 4:30. A&M-Corpus Christi was able to slow the Demons offense significantly over the same stretch, though, limiting the high-scoring squad to 11 points and stemming the tide to maintain a nine-point lead with 6:57 to play. Harrison Hawkins led the Wildcats with 12 points and Williams added 11. McNeese held a 46-39 advantage in the rebounding department. McNeese (7-9, 1-4 SLC) held ACU to just 5 of 23 (21.7 percent) shooting in the first half and 32.1 percent (17 of 53) for the game. In addition, the Cowboys limited Parker Wentz, ACU’s leading scorer with 13.9 points per game, to just five points, his second-lowest output of the season. The Cowboys connected on 22 of 56 from the field for 39 percent and was just 2 of 20 for 10 percent from long range. Keelan Garrett, the Cowboys’ top 3-point shooter, missed on all three of his attempts from behind the arc but played with an injured right shoulder. The Cowboys held ACU (9-9, 3-2) scoreless through the first 4:22 of the game before LaDarrien Williams hit a 3-pointer at that mark. But since the Cowboys weren’t scoring either, ACU held a 3-2 lead after that score. As a team the Bearkats shot 41 percent from the field (23-of-56). Sam Houston out-scored the Colonels 24-16 in the paint and picked up 34 points from their bench. McNeese led 27-19 at the half as neither team seemed to be in any hurry to score points. The Islanders then embarked on a 12-2 run, getting three more threes from Pye to push the lead to 27-15. After the Islanders pushed it to 29-17, the Demons scored six straight points to cut it to a six-point deficit following a West free throw at the 8:53 mark. The two teams went back-and-forth at that point, with two West free throws making it 40-33 with 3:41 left. The Wildcats patiently closed the gap and cut the lead to 4 following a 3-pointer by Austin Cooke to make it 49-45 with 7:01 to play but the Cowboys answered with a free throw by Guidry followed by a steal by Guidry which led to a fast-break layup by Burr to make it a 7-point game with 5:42 to play. The 12 points were the fewest allowed in an opening half this season, besting the 17 points to which the Kats limited Prairie View A&M in a non-conference game in Huntsville December 20. Rashawn Thomas also posted a double-double, his seventh of the season, with 15 points and 12 rebounds for the Islanders. Brandon Pye scored 17 points and went 5-for-8 from downtown, while Bryce Douvier scored 14 points and snared seven boards. Jordan’s 11 assists matched a career high for the senior. The attention was primarily on the free throw shooting – both teams combined to miss 28 total – but the story of the game was the defense the Cowboys played against the up-tempo, high-octane Wildcat offense. Jumping out to an 11-2 lead in the first four minutes of the game, the Bearkats went on to produce their best defensive 20 minutes of the 2015 season. Sam Houston held Nicholls to 3-of-20 shooting from the field (15%) and out-rebounded the Colonels 20-12 to take a 39-12 lead into the locker room at intermission. – Return to Top –

Belfast: London and Dublin were set to announce a fresh attempt to revive Northern Ireland’s power-sharing devolved administration, reports said Friday, following the killing of a journalist by nationalist paramilitaries. Northern Ireland, part of the United Kingdom, has been without its semi-autonomous government since January 2017 following a breakdown in trust between the main parties. In a rare joint statement, politicians from Northern Ireland’s six biggest parties united to condemn the killing of 29-year-old Lyra McKee, shot dead on April 18 while reporting on riots in the second city of Londonderry. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from USHer death has triggered a renewed attempt to mend the fences between the main parties representing the British unionist and Irish nationalist communities. The New IRA (Irish Republican Army) paramilitary splinter group, which violently opposes the peace process in Northern Ireland, admitted responsibility for McKee’s killing, saying she was unintentionally shot as they attacked “enemy” police officers. At her funeral on Wednesday, Father Martin Magill commended Northern Ireland’s political leaders for joining together at her funeral, but asked, to a standing ovation: “Why in God’s name does it take the death of a 29-year-old woman with her whole life in front of her to get us to this point?'” It is expected that the talks could take place following the May 2 local elections in Northern Ireland. Britain’s N Ireland Secretary Karen Bradley and Ireland’s Foreign Affairs Minister Simon Coveney are expected to hold a press conference later on Friday in Belfast. The two largest parties, the pro-British Democratic Unionists and Irish republican Sinn Fein, are at loggerheads over several issues.
