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

Avoid - if you want your Zoolander fix, watch the original
Zoolander was a parody of the fashion industry. It was original, well written, packed with jokes and witty moments and flowed brilliantly from one scene to the next. Whilst things were often a bit silly, it always kept it within the bounds of reason which really gave the comedy some grounding.
Zoolander 2 is more like a parody of Zoolander. The jokes that were iconic in the original are recycled repeatedly. Derek's signature look is now done by everybody. The settings, story, or events rarely make any sense. Whereas the original mocked models and showed them being killed, violent events simply pass the characters by in the 2nd film. It is a total mess and rarely funny.
Every time I caught myself starting to enjoy the film, moments later it would pluck me back out of my happy place with something awkward. I am just glad I didn't fork out to see it at the cinema. What a waste of time and effort.
