Please note: This is a gay and lesbian film.
The sequel to the 2000 film, Iron Ladies, Iron Ladies 2, continues the saga of the male Thai volleyball team which is made up of gays, transvestites and transsexuals. Unlike the original, Iron Ladies 2 frequently and inexplicably goes "over the top" with its' depiction of the (to say the least) unusual assemblage of athletes.
The original had moments of humanity and dealing with differences, but the producers apparently decided that utilizing more "shock factor" was the way to go in the follow-up. Not surprisingly, this approach only makes what could have been decent entertainment into a farce.
The tried-and-true "we are family" storyline quite often succeeds in these type of films; unfortunately the undisciplined performances and narcissistic stereotypes in Iron Ladies 2 isn't one of those success stories.
