The original is endearing homoerotic 70s camp and this is a subpar Zoolander knockoff.
What happens when you combine most of the cast of Zoolander with a charmingly goofy 70s detective show? Something real bad, it turns out, because Todd Phillips is also there siphoning all that pesky “joy” out of the situation. Or: in which Dorothy knows a lot about a historical slash fandom and this shit ain’t it.
