Zoolander 2 (2016)

Posted 11/11/2016 by Edward Davies in Comedy

Starring : Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Penelope Cruz, Will Ferrell
Director : Ben Stiller
Running Time : 102 mins

Following the death of his wife and the injury of his best friend Hansel (Wilson), Derek Zoolander (Stiller) retired from the modelling business and went into seclusion, but when a number of celebrities are murdered with their final expression resembling Zoolander’s trademark blue steel look, Fashion Interpol agent Valentina Valencia (Cruz) tracks him down to help solve the crimes.

This was not as good as the first movie – how could it be after fifteen years of anticipation – but there are still some funny moments. The conceit of the story was fun, and some of the jokes might have been obvious, like Hansel’s scarring, but they were still funny. There were jokes that didn’t work so well, though most of them were very good, especially the visual ones. Fans of the original might be a little disappointed, but there are worse comedies out there.

Verdict : 8/10
