Clear the runway for Derek Zoolander, VH1's three-time male model of the year. His face falls when hippie-chic "he's so hot right now" Hansel scooters in to steal this year's award. The evil fashion guru Mugatu seizes the opportunity to turn Derek into a killing machine. Its a well-designed conspiracy and only with the help of Hansel and a few well-chosen accessories can Derek make the world safe.

Derek Zoolander (Stiller) is the top male model in the world who after winning male model of the year three years in a row, loses the title to modeling's newest flavor of the month, Hansel (Owen Wilson) which has Derek re-thinking his purpose in life.

Zoolander is a fairly basic satire on the fashion industry that I wasn't exactly expecting to be incisive (and it really isn't, bar the fact that the main conflict is driven by a political dispute over clothing sweatshops) but the main target of its comedy is its clueless protagonist (Ben Stiller) whose sheer lack of intelligence makes him the ideal candidate for becoming a brainwashed assassin.
