He becomes easy prey for fashion designer Jacobim Mugatu (Will Ferrell), who signs Derek to star in his "Derelicte" fashion show, then brainwashes him to kill Malaysia's prime minister.

    Kirk HoneycuttThe Hollywood Reporter

    Stiller performs a good balancing act not only with his many jobs on this movie but also in keeping the big picture firmly in mind. It's not always easy to be both silly and smart, but Stiller for the most part pulls it off. show more

    Chris KaltenbachBaltimore Sun

    Well-paced, scathingly funny satire of the fashion industry and its eminently lampoonable pomposity.
