Zoolander 2 (2016)


Ben Stiller
Owen Wilson

Directed by Ben Stiller

The first Zoolander (2001) film was fun, the stupidity and silliness tickled, but now in this film they were out of place. I believe this was a bad move to have gone ahead to make this film, as it was a set failure commercial from the moment Ben Stiller decided to make it. Zoolander 2 is a critical and commercial failure due to the lack of laughs and the idea of packaging the jokes as gags to make you reminiscence of the first film, which was 15 years ago.

The first Zoolander (2001) was fun and enjoyable, when you see how they dumbed down the fashion industry. I saw Zoolander in 2002 and I enjoyed all the fun of seeing this dumb man living in his own world with a cell phone as large as my finger. The presence of Vince Vaughn and Jon Voight (who played his brother and father respectively) made the movie a home run for me and the “Magnum” look was epic to see, as I believe Zoolander begun the kiss the air look before taking a picture which Kim Kardashian has perfected.

In the first Zoolander Derek stopped Mugatu and saved the day by unleashing his, "Magnum" look that froze the shuriken in front of his face and falling to the ground, when Mugatu threw the shuriken at the Prime Minister. All through this film, they keep giving us flash backs of the look, trying to get him to pull it off was his former rival and now best friend Hansel.

The movie starts with the introduction of Zoolander (Ben Stiller) as a dumb individual who is unable to take care of himself not to mention his son. He lost his son to the system and he withdrew from life, living alone in New Jersey. Billy Zane brings him an invite to the House of Atoz, an invite Hansel (Owen Wilson) also got.

Both meetup and were joined by Fashion Interpol Valentina Valencia (Penelope Cruz), who briefed them of the current deaths of pop stars all dying with the same look on their face.
They agreed to help the Fashion Interpol if they will help Zoolander track down his son.

Soon they discover that Mugatu was behind everything and has stolen Zoolander’s son to sacrifice him and get his heart, as his son is a descendant of Steve and his heart holds the key to eternal youth.

Steve as you may be wondering, is the third person in creation. As it is said in this film in the beginning God made Adam and Eve and Steve.

I guess Ben Stiller like Adam Sandler are finding themselves becoming archaic.
