Storyline

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

IMDb Ratings are broken - This is a solid comedy
20 June 2016 | by (Munich, Germany) – See all my reviews

Here is the thing - too many times I have made a mistake to watch a film only based on it's IMDb rating or reviews.

This crucial piece of information that is missing here is:

  • who is rating/reviewing the title?


  • which other films did the one love/hate?


That is why I want to give some information about me before giving my two cents on Zoolander2:

  • 35 year old male


  • as a kid I loved Mel Brooks films, Hot Shots Franchise, Jim Carrey
Works...

  • I love brother Farrelly comedies


  • I enjoy most of Ben Stiller works (Cable Guy, Tropic Thunder...)


Now, with this information in mind, we can proceed:

In spite of bad ratings I chose to watch this one, and I didn't regret it. It is a well crafted over the top comedy with some clever and satirical gags.

Because of the fact that it's over the top - from start to finish, I don't have any problems with the story.

I guess it just depends on the mindset and maybe the mood. Both me and my wife had many laughs during the whole film.

Was it predictable? Yes. But I wasn't expecting it to be any different :)

I hope this helps.

Peace out.
