Already out in theaters, “Zoolander 2” showcases two male models  who plan to return the fashion world to its former glory by saving celebrities from the evil clutches of the scheming designers, Mugatu and Alexanya Atoz.

The film, set 10 years after the first movie, boasts more than 32 famous singers, models and actresses including Katy Perry, Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber.

The first “Zoolander” started with Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller), a male model who was brainwashed to kill the minister of Malaysia. Along the way, he meets his enemy, Hansel (Owen Wilson),also a male model,who later becomes his friend.

At the end of the film, Derek becomes depressed and secludes himself from the world after his wife (Christine Taylor), dies from an unfortunate construction accident.

Following his beloved wife’s death, Derek attempts to return to public life at the beginning of “Zoolander 2”, until he hears about a series of kidnappings that involve many celebrities with Derek’s legendary “ blue steel” pose. He enlists the help of his enemy Hansel to help uncover the culprit behind all the mysterious actions. During their adventures to find the kidnapped victims, the fiery undercover agent, Valentina Valencia (Penelope Cruz) assists them.

Later in the “ oh so hot right now” comedy, they uncover a few  celebrities and realize Mugatu (Will Ferrell), the villainous designer, remains the one who  continues  kidnapping. Not only is he the schemer, but also the “ridiculously- dressed” Alexanya Atoz, who Kristen Wiig plays wonderfully.

“Zoolander 2” was so funny and ridiculous, I couldn’t stop laughing,” sophomore Elizabeth Garrlet said. Garrlet also thought the roles fit  perfectly with each actor’s personality.

Although the film centers around the high society of  haute couture and the fashion universe, it’s humor is for everyone. “ I don’t know anything about fashion, but it didn’t change how hilarious it was,” freshmen Emma Schunt said.

Because of  the fashion influence in the film, it seemed perfectly suited that the film be shot in the magnificent city of Rome.

“ Zoolander 2” has many unforgettable punchlines from the first film. “ My favourite quote in the Zoolander 2 movie is when Derek asks himself , ‘ Is there more to life than being ridiculously good-looking?’” junior Olivia Phalent said.
