This week the boys welcome back special guest host Brigit to help review Zoolander 2, the Ben Stiller directed sequel to the genuinely funny original from 2001. Does this sequel 15 years in the making hold up? Or is a big ol' bag of butt holes? (Hint: You're gonna need a BIG bag.)
Then Brigit leads off in counting down the best films featuring actors who also directed themselves. And though Zoolander 2 fails to come anywhere near this list, there's debate early as Brigit offers some unexpected choices. But all's well that ends well, as the hosts are in complete agreement about the two best directors who appear in their own work.
