We gave it a C-

Boys, boys, what happened? In this long, uninspired dumb-blond joke, Stiller plays Derek Zoolander, a mind-free male model brainwashed to kill the Malaysian president — and preserve cheap child labor for the fashion industry! Nice gag, but Stiller (who also wrote and directed, kinda) never really engages in any of his three jobs. Maybe he was distracted by his script notes: ”Ben, insert funny joke here later.”
