Stiller plays Derek Zoolander, an absurdly vacuous and successful male model who's brainwashed into becoming an assassin by over-the-top designer Mugatu (Ferrell). It seems that a foreign prime minister is committed to cutting off the supply of cheap third world labor for the fashion industry, and Zoolander is the only model stupid enough to have his noggin scrubbed clean. He develops a friendship with arch-rival model Hansel (Wilson), and the dim duo try to stop the nefarious plot. Packed to the gills with celebrity cameos, including Heidi Klum, Donald Trump and, yes, Fabio. Ran into unexpected controversy because the intended target is the prime minister of Malaysia (and the Malaysians naturally objected).
