“Zoolander”The Good, the Bad and the Narcissistic Model:
After 15 long years, the long-awaited sequel of the American satirical comedy "Zoolander" final comes to the big screen, featuring the return of the main cast like Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson and Will Ferrell, as well as some new additions including Penelope Cruz, Kristen Wiig and Cyrus Arnold, and a lot of cameos from famous celebrities such as Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Sting, Kiefer Sutherland, Katy Perry and more.
Fans of the original "Zoolander" are definitely going to enjoy the sequel as it is 'horrendously' hilarious, very ridiculous and makes no sense at all - which may sound like a bad thing, but that's how the first film was too, except that the sequel has even more over the top jokes that are sometimes brilliant, other times just plain stupid, and also very random at time. What's guaranteed is that it will surely bring you plenty of laughter!
The film once again pokes fun at the modelling industry and tiny things are exaggerated, where for example, the characters make a huge fuss out of a tiny, barely-noticeable scar which they feel could potentially ruin a model's career, or being highly disgusted by fat and ugly people.
Furthermore, the film also features a great line-up of famous personalities, designers and models from the industry like Anna Wintour, Marc Jacobs, Karlie Kloss, Kate Moss, Tommy Hilfiger and Alexander Wang, who play a bunch of selfish and mindless idiots, craving for eternal beauty.
To sum it all up, don't expect too much from the film as it has no serious plot, just some senseless yet enjoyable comedy that is great for relieving stress.Trivia
