Zoolander 2 (2016) Full Movie,Former models Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) and Hansel find themselves thrust back into the spotlight after living in seclusion for years. Invited to a major fashion event in Rome. the estranged friends are surprised to see how much the business has changed. Even more shocking is their encounter with Valentina Valencia. a special agent who needs their help. Someone is killing famous pop stars. and it’s up to Derek and Hansel to help save the world’s most beautiful people from a similar fate.
Does America really NEED a sequel to the 2001 Ben-Stiller-starring-and-directed send-up of the fashion and supermodeling worlds. and the apparently ceaseless vacuity thereof and therein? For the first 20 minutes or so of “Zoolander 2.” the answer is a pretty flat “no.” The sequel. again directed by and starring Stiller (in the title role of Derek Zoolander. whose skull is so thoroughly empty that to call him an “airhead” would be an insult to air). along with Owen Wilson as counterpart dimbulb male model Hansel. and many others from the original cast. begins with a gag that’s already been overplayed in the trailers. That is. the “assassination” of pop star Justin Bieber. who. before he saunters off this mortal coil. takes a selfie while making a signature Derek Zoolander “look.” What follows is a multi-media-personality “whatever happened to?” sequence. Every TV news personality of note save for maybe Brian Williams adds a sound bite to the story. which features an arguably tasteless fictional disaster befalling a construction in downtown Manhattan close to the Hudson River. Soon. the audience sees a mountain lair in a snowy. windy surrounding. and the title in the lower right hand corner of the screen reads “Extreme Northern New Jersey.” I’m a sucker for a good Jersey joke but I still wasn’t hooked.
