QUICK TAKE:
Comedy: Two former fashion model stars come out of retirement to help Interpol figure out who's behind the murders of famous pop and rock stars.
PLOT:
It's been fifteen years since models Derek Zoolander (BEN STILLER) and Hansel McDonald (OWEN WILSON) were at the top of their game in the fashion industry world. But following the collapse of the "Derek Zoolander Center for Kids Who Can't Read Good And Wanna Learn To Do Other Stuff Good Too" -- that left Hansel's face scarred and Derek's wife, Matilda, dead, and ultimately led to child protection services taking away his custody of their son, Derek Zoolander Jr. (CYRUS ARNOLD) -- the models have all but disappeared. Derek has become a reclusive hermit in northern New Jersey, and Hansel has been actively involved with a group of orgy participants led by Kiefer Sutherland (KIEFER SUTHERLAND), while their former nemesis, Jacobim Mugatu (WILL FERRELL), is locked away in a fashion prison.

Since their disappearance, fashionista Alexanya Atoz (KRISTEN WIIG) has taken over the fashion world with the industry's number one model, Don Atari (KYLE MOONEY). Yet, she's sent an emissary (BILLY ZANE) to invite them to her runway show in Rome. But she's not the only one interested in working with them as agent Melanie Valentina (PENELOPE CRUZ), of Interpol's fashion police division, is seeking their help to crack a case she's working on. With Justin Bieber having just been gunned down, she's trying to figure out why someone has been murdering pop and rock stars, and why Bieber sent out a photo doing Derek's trademark "blue steel" gaze just before dying.

From that point on, and as they try to figure out the new fashion world, Derek hopes to be reunited with his son, all while all involved must contend with the treachery about to be unleashed by Mugatu.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they're fans of the first film or anyone in this sequel they might be interested.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For crude and sexual content, a scene of exaggerated violence, and brief strong language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
