Plot

In Zoolander, the supremacy of Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) as the world's top male model is challenged by the up-and-coming Hansel (Owen Wilson), an acid-tripping, Great Spirit-worshiping throwback to the 1960s. Derek is publicly embarrassed at the VH1 Fashion Awards when he tries to accept an award given to his rival. Thereafter, Derek is the subject of a Time magazine cover and article mocking his and other models' lack of intelligence. After Derek's roommates — fellow male models — are killed in a "freak" gasoline-fight accident, Derek announces his retirement from the male modeling profession as he is eulogizing his roommates' deaths-or, in his own words, "ugoogalizing". He returns to the coal mines where his father Spencer (Jon Voight) and brothers work, but soon finds himself rejected by his family and desperately out of place as a male model in a hardscrabble coal-mining town.

Prime Minister Hassan of Malaysia is working on reducing child labor in his country. The fashion industry is determined to retain Malaysia as a major source of cheap child labor, and is desperate to thwart the incumbent prime minister. Fashion mogul Jacobim Mugatu (Will Ferrell), helped by his tough assistant Katinka Ingabogovinanana (Milla Jovovich), is inspired by Derek's recent public mishaps and decides to use Derek as a programmed assassin to kill the Malaysian Prime Minister à la The Manchurian Candidate. Appealing to Derek's new-found benevolence, Mugatu convinces Derek to come out of retirement and model Mugatu's new Derelicte fashion line; the Prime Minister is to be the guest of honor at the line's premiere.

While Derek is away at a health spa being programmed, journalist Matilda Jeffries (Christine Taylor), who had previously written the critical Time article, grows concerned over Derek's sudden disappearance, and feels guilty about the effects her article might have had on his psyche. While looking for Derek, Matilda begins to uncover Mugatu's plot to train Derek as an assassin. Matilda discovers Derek being programmed at Mugatu's health spa, and tries to save Derek from it, however Matilda is kicked out of the spa and Derek is brainwashed by a video clip of Frankie Goes To Hollywood's greatest single Relax created by Mugatu. More of the plot is revealed when J.P. Prewett (David Duchovny), formerly the world's greatest hand model and now a recluse, mysteriously appears to inform Derek and Matilda of the vastness of the fashion industry's reach into geopolitical intrigue, implicating the industry in, for example, the assassination of Presidents Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy to prevent the industry's loss of profit. J.P. is not as stupid as Derek, which he explains by saying that hand models are a different breed from "face and body boys"; nevertheless, he keeps his modeling hand in a hyperbaric chamber which he made himself, and spends over a minute trying to pick up a dropped flashlight with it rather than his free hand.

During their clandestine meeting with Prewett, Derek and Matilda are ambushed by Katinka Ingabogovinanana and Mugatu's henchmen. Needing a place to hide, they go to the one place where nobody would think to look for Derek, at the home of his arch-nemesis Hansel. Derek and Hansel reveal their mutual fear and respect of one another, and Hansel agrees to take Derek and Matilda in. After a drug-fueled orgy among Derek, Matilda, Hansel and Hansel's houseguests, Derek reveals that he is developing feelings for Matilda. The three of them then decide to figure out a plan to publicly announce the assassination plot. Derek and Hansel work undercover as janitors and break into the offices of Derek's agent, Maury Ballstein (Jerry Stiller), whom they correctly surmise to be in cahoots with Mugatu in the assassination plot. Unable to operate Ballstein's computer due to their lack of smarts, Derek and Hansel are unable to retrieve the incriminating evidence. Missing the necessary evidence, Derek goes to the Derelicte show to meet his fate. A janitor is a person who takes care of a building, such as a school, office building, or apartment block. ...

The Derelicte debut is highly popular and attended by such illustrious celebrities as Donald Trump, Greg Kinnear, Paris Hilton, Sandra Bernhard, Gwen Stefani, David Bowie, Lil Kim and Gary Shandling. Matilda arrives to try to help Derek just as he begins his entrance onto the catwalk. The house discjockey (Justin Theroux), in league with Mugatu, plays the song programmed to trigger Derek, "Relax" by Frankie Goes to Hollywood. As he has been programmed, Derek turns into a rage-filled, martial arts-trained killing machine and makes his way kung fu-style down the catwalk to kill the Prime Minister sitting in the crowd.

Before Derek can reach the Prime Minister, Hansel crashes the DJ booth and changes the music to "Rockit" by Herbie Hancock.

Hansel is finally able to unplug the sound system as Derek is mere seconds away from snapping the Prime Minister's neck. With the assassination plot both revealed and thwarted, Mugatu publicly accuses Derek of plotting alone to kill the Prime Minister. Hansel announces to the crowd that he brought Ballstein's computer with the incriminating files to the show. In another display of his model smarts, Hansel hurls the computer to the floor below to try to reveal to the crowd the files "inside", destroying the computer and the incriminating evidence. Ballstein, on hand for the show and wracked with guilt, publicly admits to the plot and calls his wife to have her bring to the show backup copies he kept of the incriminating files, thereby negating Hansel's foolish act.


Mugatu, his plan having been unmasked, desperately attempts to kill the Prime Minister on his own with a throwing star. Derek steps in front of the throwing star, and turns left unveiling his new look "Magnum" (which is exactly like all his other looks, though no one seems to notice), and is able to render the weapon inert by stopping it in mid-air through sheer beauty. Categories: Weapon stubs | East Asian weapons | Throwing weapons ...


By saving the Prime Minister, Derek wins his father's respect. In the epilogue, it is revealed that Derek has retired from modeling to run "The Derek Zoolander Center For Kids Who Can't Read Good And Who Wanna Learn To Do Other Stuff Good Too," with Hansel and Maury as teachers. It is also revealed that Derek and Matilda have had a son, and their infant son shares not only his father's hirsute eyebrows and spiky hair, but also has the innate ability to display the facial poses that made Derek Zoolander famous.

Throughout most of the film, Zoolander shows an inability to turn left. To compensate, he will continuously turn right until he faces the correct direction. So, rather than making a 90° turn left, Zoolander will turn 270° right. However, a goof showed him exiting the awards show by turning left. In fact, an inability to turn left is one symptom experienced by those with Hemispatial neglect, a condition caused by damage to the right hemisphere of the brain. Patients with this problem compensate in the same way as Zoolander, turning right until they are facing the desired direction.[citation needed] It has been suggested that this article or section be merged with Unilateral neglect. ...


"Blue Steel" is the name of a male model pose in Zoolander. The film's protagonist Derek Zoolander invented the pose and he protects it as a trade secret (it is supposedly patented).

This contributes to the running joke that despite his reputation as a male model, Zoolander knows only one pose.

Zoolander - Rotten Tomatoes (888 words)
Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) isn't smart, but he looks "really, really good." An empty-headed yet kindhearted male model, the self-absorbed Derek becomes an unwitting pawn in a international assassination plot masterminded by oddball fashion dictator Jacobim Mugatu (Will Ferrell).
A movie has to be somewhat smart to be so successfully silly, and Zoolander is a comedy that nails its targets with impressive regularity.
What Zoolander does have, and this was enough for me, is a sublime comic performance by Owen Wilson.
