After many years of being separated from modeling and each other, Derek and Hansel are dragged back into the fashion world in Rome. After being humiliated on the runway by the people behind the scenes, Derek and Hansel decide to quit the business . . . until retired swimsuit model, Valentina, drags them back in with questions about recent celebrity deaths. Soon after, Derek also realizes out that the son who was taken from him is in Rome, and is much dismayed to find that Derek, Jr. is fat. And smart. Regardless, Derek, Sr. continues his mission with Hansel, which leads them to the fashion-model legends of "Adam, Eve, and Steve", and the "Chosen One". Who is that person? Why do the models drink the Chosen One's blood? Will Derek's and Hansel's careers resume? Written by Bossy Bessie

10 February 2016 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

I took the opportunity to a watch a preview of Zoolanader 2. The first Zoolander is a favourite of mine. Unfortunately Zoolander 2 failed to deliver the same level of comedy. Gags kept missing the mark. At one point when I sensed there was a joke on the way, I made a conscious effort to listen out for laughter in the screening room. There was silence. The narrative kept grinding to a halt to accommodate the celebrity cameos, all of which were painfully dull. At the start of the film we see Zoolander and Hansel as old, lame and out of touch. I found this to be a little depressing. I questioned if they had waited too long to make this film. Things did improve towards the end. The plot had direction, it had more energy and Will Ferrell had a couple of funny moments. Sadly it wasn't enough.
