ZOOLANDER 2 (2016): The Things I Loved…

Starring Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson and Will Ferrell, I’ll start by confirming that without question, the original Zoolander (2001) movie is better. The story in the first movie seemed so much simpler in comparison and I found that I loved every single cameo, including Paris Hilton, Billy Zane and especially David Bowie.

The cameos in Zoolander 2, particularly the ones from the world of fashion are disappointing on account of dodgy acting skills all round. Valentino, Tommy Hilfiger, Anna Winter and Marc Jacobs – along with Justin Bieber all did the best they could of course but I was still left wanting.

Overall, nothing was half as annoying as Kyle Mooney’s Don Atari. The character’s extreme and irritating hipster ways made it hard to see why he had to be there at all.

I enjoyed the use of a soundtrack that definitely seemed more at home in a superhero movie. Will Ferrell’s Jacobim Mugato, my very favourite character from the original film is the one I couldn’t wait to see again, and what a joyful reunion it turned out to be. I remember laughing particularly loudly at his line about the number of square meals fed to Derek Jr., a character played very well by young Cyrus Arnold.

I’m a big fan of the original Zoolander movie and this sequel, though not an improvement on the original, I found it worth it for the handful of jokes that do land and for the opportunity to reminisce about how happy I was to have come across the original film in the first place.

Watch it, especially if you loved the original and you’re as curious as I am. Should you watch just one of these movies, please let it be Zoolander (2001).

Happy Film Loving

ZOOLANDER 2 (2016): A Teaser Trailer For Ben Stiller’s Return As Derek Zoolander

Written by Justin Theroux and directed by Ben Stiller, the teaser trailer for Zoolander 2 has arrived and a tease it absolutely is!

The sequel also stars Owen Wilson, Olivia Munn, Penelope Cruz, Kristen Wiig, billy Zane, Fred Armisen, and Christine Taylor.

I can’t wait to see Will Ferrell as Mugatu. His performance in the original Zoolander (2001) film is one of my favourite Ferrell portrayals. Time to re-watch it, also to remind myself of Derek Zoolander’s impressive patented poses; Blue Steel, Ferrari, La Tigre and of course, Magnum.

Happy Zoolander 2 🙂
