Director: Ben Stiller (2016)
Fifteen years is an eternity in fashion and the threadbare joke has worn desperately thin in this comedy sequel.
From self imposed exile, Ben Stiller’s idiotic catwalk model Derek Zoolander is called to Rome to investigate the murder of pop stars such as Justin Bieber.
Penelope Cruz parades in her skimpies as the fashion police and Will Ferrell offers manic energy as an incarcerated super villain.
Aping the glossy action thriller style of Mission Impossible, the plot develops into a Da Vinci Code type hunt for the fabled fountain of youth.
With a long line of cameos by models and designers, it’s as incestuous and self adoring as the industry it pretends to be mocking.
