Here's the Real Failure of 'Zoolander 2'

21 hours ago

Read More: The Best Super Bowl Moment Was Will Ferrell Not Talking About 'Zoolander 2' Released two weeks after 9/11, the first "Zoolander" arrived in theaters like a national catharsis; opening nearly 15 years later, the sequel plays like a throwback to embarrasing times. Backwards sexual politics passed off as crude humor worked better for the first movie, when the idea of "male models" casting feminine poses made for decent punchlines in a less enlightened cultural landscape. So it follows that when "Zoolander 2" tries to make fun of its outdated premise, the movie only chronicles its irrelevance. Needless to say, the setup for the Ben Stiller-directed followup doesn't so much as resurrect its chronically dumb pair of fashionistas Derek (Stiller) and Hansel (Owen Wilson) as it reroutes them through the same jokes. The premise has a promising cockamamie start: Disgraced Derek Zoolander endures a self-imposed exile in the frozen tundra of. »
