After winning big at the National Championships, a predominantly homosexual volleyball team known as the Iron Ladies split up when Nong, one of their teammates, joins up with Prasert, a morally questionable promoter bent on copying the Iron Ladies' previous success. A chance meeting in China, however, finds the team questioning a possible reunion, particularly after Nong learns of Prasert's plans to offer the team captaincy to Muangman, a notorious homophobe. The Iron Ladies 2 features Jessdapom Pholdee, Sahapap Virakamin, Apichart Vongkavee, and Gokgom Benjathikul, among others. ~ Tracie Cooper, All Movie Guide

Anyone expecting another funny, feel-good film like "Iron Ladies" better tamp down those expectations fast. IRON LADIES 2 is a sloppy, pointless follow-up to the surprise international hit about the Thai transvestite volleyball team. Perhaps because there was no reason for this second film to exist (well, yeah, money), the filmmakers simply tossed together a non-story that uses strained flashbacks, dumb fantasy and oodles of mostly unfunny mincing from the Jung character (who is grating beyond belief this time around).

The original managed to get by the triteness of its every-gay-is-a-mincing-fairy appearance by parsing out enough heartfelt feelings and laugh-out-loud humor among the interesting and varied stories and characters. This time, no such luck: the movie had me climbing the wall by the 20-minute point. I stuck with it in hopes of better things to come, but I'm still waiting. Even the raison-d'etre volleyball sequences are lackluster. Boo!
