It’s the return of the fashion sensation as Derek Zoolander makes an impact in Paramount’s much anticipated sequel from 2001’s ‘Zoolander‘. When Justin Bieber is gunned down, Derek Zoolander is brought in to search for the person responsible. When Mugatu escapes from imprisonment he holds Zoolander’s son captive and seeks to sacrifice Jr. to a cult. Ben Stiller returns as director along with co-stars Owen Wilson, Penelope Cruz, and Will Ferrell.
After a 15 year absence we are reunited with Ben Stiller as Derek Zoolander. Audiences pushed for a sequel and their voices were heard. The only question to ask is if the long wait pays off. Unfortunately, there just wasn’t much here to warrant much of a celebratory return. We do get the chemistry between Derek and Hansel that everyone enjoyed from the original. This time, however, the script was minimal with little cohesion to last the entire 104 minute runtime.
If your a fan of the original ‘Zoolander‘ you may find something to enjoy but for general audiences who aren’t familiar with the property may not find it to be enjoyable.
