Clear the runway for Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller), VH1's three-time male model of the year. His face falls when hippie-chic Hansel (Owen Wilson) scooters in to steal this year's award. The evil fashion guru Mugatu (Will Ferrell) seizes the opportunity to turn Derek into a killing machine. It's a well-designed conspiracy and only with the help of Hansel and a few well-chosen accessories like Matilda (Christine Taylor) can Derek make the world safe for male models everywhere.
Charge your micro-mini cell phones and whip up some orange mocha Frappuccino, 'cuz Zoolander is on the runway, and you're gonna laugh your booty off! Based on a sketch created by writer-director Ben Stiller and cowriter Drake Sather for the 1996 VH1/Vogue Fashion Awards, Zoolander is a delirious send-up of New York's fashion scene as epitomized by male model Derek Zoolander (Stiller), a dimwitted preener who's oblivious to a Manchurian Candidate-like plot to turn him into a brainwashed assassin. Tipped off by a reporter (Christina Taylor), Zoolander teams with rival model Hansel (Owen Wilson) to foil the poodle-haired fashion designer (Will Ferrell) who's behind the nefarious scheme. The goofy plot's only half the fun; with roles for Stiller's parents (Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara), dozens of celebrity cameos, endlessly quotable dialogue, and improvisational energy to spare, Zoolander is very smart about being very stupid, easily matching the Austin Powers franchise for inspired comedic lunacy. --Jeff Shannon

Wonderful cameos. Oddest one, I think is Derek Zoolander's father played by John Voight doing, I think, a weird impression of a cross between William Shatner (look) and Christopher Walken (voice). Or maybe that's just John Voight! Lots of real-life people also, even Donald Trump.
Ben Stiller's father (Jerry Stiller) had a decent part and his mother (Anne Meara) an unaccredited cameo.
Homages to famous films, for example Michael's "You broke my heart Fredo" speech in The Godfather, and an ape scene from 2001 Space Odyssey. You sure can believe Owen Wilson as an ape!
There is a Zoolander 2 out now. I'll wait for availability via streaming.
Trivia found in the Internet: There is a Dutch model Mark Vanderloo and an American model Johnny Zander.
QUESTION: Can anyone explain the "Magnum Look?" I was waiting for a good Magnum P.I. or Tom Sellick impression but I don't think I got it.
No plot spoilers from me: The movie centers on Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller), a truly dense male model, as he defends his title as "Model of the Year" against newcomer "Hansel" (Owen Wilson). Throw in an investigative reporter (Christine Taylor), a secret shadow organization with an international assassination plot, many cameos (don't want to ruin the "ah ha" factor by listing them), and a generally fun plot, and you get a very watchable movie. There are some "mature" scenes, but nothing too shocking.
We find ourselves quoting lines from this movie quite often and have had to watch it with family members to bring them up to speed on our jokes.
If you're in the mood to laugh at some brilliant idiots this is your movie!
We watched this in preparation for *maybe* going to see Zoolander 2. It was worth it for that purpose.
