FILM REVIEW: ZOOLANDER 2
Original gets a make-over
Ben Stiller plays Derek Zoolander and Penelope Cruz is Valentina
Valencia in Zoolander 2.
The big screen
It's not called Blue Steel Strikes Back,
Revenge of Blue Steel or Zoolander
and the Temple of Fashion.Eventhe
producers thought of it as a copy of the
first film and simply called it
That best describes a film that only
makes cosmetic changes to the
structure of the original Zoolander.
Derek Zoolander, a former fashion
icon defined by his Blue Steel facial
pose, has lost his mojo. He has been
supplanted in the fashion world by the
gender neutral model All, expressed

The intended satire of the fashion
world is turned into parody with
the comedy ranging from sexual
innuendos that a 12-year-old will find
funny to outrageous caricatures like
Kristen Wiig's indecipherable accent
as a doyen of style.
Zoolander's propensity for
malapropisms is humorous and
Zoolander 2 is peppered with cameo

personalities such as Sting and
Madonna to fashion heavyweights
Anna Wintour and Tommy Hilfiger.
The film seems to be as much about
celebrity spotting as plot and
substance. The level of laughter of the
audience was subdued, with the
occasional out-loud laugh.
The final sequence ramps up the
comedy and satirical elements but it
comes too late.
Zoolander 2 is like a retread tyre.
It's the original film that has been
given a facelift, which might be totally
appropriate for a film that is a parody
of narcissism, fashion and the world of
