When it was announced last year that there would be Zoolander 2, I literally jumped for joy.
It had been 15 years since the Zoolander was created and released. Just watching the trailer for the first time made me super excited!
I saw the negative reviews about the movie yet it didn’t hinder me to see the film. Luckily, I received free tickets for the premiere of Zoolander 2. Thank you to Kiehl’s! I was able to watch it last February 24 at Powerplant Mall.
I listed down the things that caught my attention about the Zoolander 2.
Celebrities here and there…
From surprising appearances of singers to prominent actors to distinguished fashion designers, this movie is jam packed! One scene there was Billy Zane, who knocked on the door, then Katy Perry was singing out of nowhere, and then Anna Wintour who was stepping out of the car and you’ll never know who would come out next. Sting’s appearance was quite special!
The Fountain of Youth, ‘Magnum’ and Mugatu summed it all.
The comeback of Derek Zoolander in the modelling industry was planned. The story centered with people who was looking for the ‘real’ fountain of youth which was said to be existing. The evilness of Jacobim Mugatu was still strong even though he was inside the prison and everyone missed the ‘Magnum’ look which saved the day again.
Meet Derek Zoolander Jr, Valentina Valentino and the rest of the team!
I seriously didn’t expect Derek Jr’s looks and intelligence. Wow! Penelope Cruz as the sexy Fashion Interpol was a major plus! Owen Wilson reprising his role as the crazy Hansel Mcdonald was overwhelming; I couldn’t believe what happened to him. And of course, Ben Stiller as Derek Zoolander, seeing him brought back memories of the first film! He didn’t even look old to me.
Yes, there were dull moments and insignificant scenes, but hearing the people inside the cinema laughing was priceless. Zoolander 2 still kicked ass with their banters and jokes. I don’t think there will be Zoolander 3 in the future but who knows?
Am I going to watch it if ever there will be? You already know the answer.
