It's silly, fun, and not supposed to be anything but...with cameos and surprise appearances. Not great art or even fantastic dramatic acting but simply something to make us laugh with its absurdities.
Watch, laugh, and enjoy.
This novel was viewed as a theatrical film and recently seen on DVD and no remuneration was involved in the writing of this review.
This film centers on the world of male models and the ridiculously good looking Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller). Ben has been the top male model for years, but his reign is coming to an end as everyone is getting excited about the latest up and comer, Hansel (Owen Wilson).
And the timing is perfect. With the spotlight leaving Zoolander, he can be used as a pawn in a conspiracy lead by Mugatu (Will Ferrell) to assassinate the new President of Malaysia, who is insisting workers be paid a fair wage for their work. The only person at all interested in this conspiracy is reporter Matilda Jeffries (Christine Taylor). Will she uncover the truth in time to stop the assassination?
The premise of the film is pretty ridiculous, right? And yet, it’s executed well. It helps that this movie is more comedy with a mystery/conspiracy plot. The movie got some laughs for me, especially out of the dumb lead models. It completely plays up the stereotype that models are stupid, but many of those jokes work.
Of course, not all the humor was for me, which isn’t a surprise given the cast. There are plenty of bad jokes that fall flat. However, I was expecting to cringe a lot more than I was at much of the humor.
And the plot holds together reasonably well. Oh, it’s over the top and unrealistic.Read more ›
