Zoolander 2: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers

After the tragic loss of his wife (Christine Taylor) and the unfortunate incident that removed him from the custody of his son, Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) decides to live in a remote cabin in New Jersey. While Hansel (Owen Wilson) on the other hand, is living with his orgy family in the desserts of Malibu. The two are already forgotten fashion icons but when they are visited by Billy Zane handing them an important message. Soon, the two met in Rome where they try to redeem themselves and get back on track, but they must face a former foe who is planning another evil plot to the fashion universe. 

One thing we've done wrong is we didn't have the time to watch the first film. We're a bit lost with some of the jokes they referred 15 years ago. We are really confused with the story that feels disoriented as the plot was made just to scrap off some cash who enjoyed the first film. Zoolander 2 is also overstuffed with cameos of fashion icons you won't even care about. There are still some fun moments, especially when Justin Bieber died but the entire thing is completely forgettable after you stepped out of the cinema. 

Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson tried hard to make the whole thing work. However, the material really can't produce enough comedy to make it enjoyable. Will Ferrell's Mugatu come out a little late in helping the two to salvage this one out of the embarrassment and Penelope Cruz is probably the second best thing in the film aside from Bieber's death. 

Overall, Zoolander 2 is a bland comedy sequel that is a decade late for release. It feels like Ben Stiller has already lost his touch in comedy and crammed everything as lazy as possible to come-up with this unnecessary sequel. 

Lakwatsera Lovers rates it 3.5 out of 10 stars
