Zoolander (2001)

Director: Ben Stiller

Stars: Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Christine Taylor, Will Ferrell, Milla Jovovich, Jerry Stiller, David Duchovny, Jon Voight, Alexander Skarsgård

Derek Zoolander is VH1's three time male model of the year, but when Hansel wins the award instead, Zoolander's world becomes upside down. His friends disappear, his father is disappointed in him, and he feels that he's not good as a model anymore. But when evil fashion guru Mugatu hires Zoolander, he thinks his life has turned back round again, that is until he finds out that Mugatu has actually brainwashed him to kill the Prime Minister of Malaysia.

This is one of those movies that the more you watch it, the more you will like it. The first time that I watched this movie, I was not really a fan of it. I thought it was okay, but it was just too silly for me. Now that many years have passed and I have rewatched it, I did like the movie a lot better the second time around. It does get better.

This is a movie that basically makes fun of male models. They are not the brightest balls in the box, historically. They talk about how stupid male models are while there are male models in the movie "acting". They got a lot of actors and famous people to take part in this movie. They pretended that this was all real. I like it when they do that in a movie. It makes you wonder when they started making this movie, when they speak of a fictional character at a red carpet event. That part of a movie helps make the audience believe in the story more than normal.

This was a great cat for a movie. Ben Stiller was great at directing the movie and creating the character of Zoolander. Will Ferrell was one of the most ridiculous characters that was so over the top that it worked so well. The hair and the clothes sealed the deal make that character come to life. The 
rest of the characters were great for the movie.


This was a really good movie. Like I said, the more you watch it, the better it is. It is a rewatcher. If you have not seen this movie, yet you need to do so. I stayed away from it for a long time. Enjoy.
