Zoolander is an interesting movie. It is a wacky comedy film directed by Ben Stiller, starring himself, Will Ferrell, and Owen Wilson. Despite the comedic lineup, the film itself was not very great. The jokes are sub-par except for a few good ones but the plot-line and story is absurd. Definitely not for everyone, as it may seem like immature humour for kids. Many of the parts that are meant to be funny are just absurd. The movie came out in 2001 and possibly the humour belongs to that era. All in all, Zoolander is a bunch of jokes put together to the point that it’s not really funny anymore. I would rate this movie 2.5/5 stars

It was fun watching this film. Cameo appearances by stars made it nice.

The first DVD is a cult classic - not for everyone.
The second DVD is a good coaster for your cold drink on a hot day.

Rarely clever, often silly, but at times dryly humorous.
More enjoyable than I last remembered it being, tho'.

Despite a few funny scenes—a send-up of Kubrick’s 2001 using an old Mac computer was pretty good—and a long line of surprise celebrity cameos from David Bowie to Billy Zane, this is essentially a one-schtick comedy hinging on “stupid male model” jokes whose first few chuckles quickly give way to groans and blank stares as Stiller starts recycling the same punchlines and sight gags over and over again. A Saturday Night Live skit that goes on long after the laughter stops.

Oh, silly Ben. Hard to know how to rate this, 15 years later: it's both hard to watch, and has some prize moments.

Hansel: So I'm rappelling down Mount Vesuvius when suddenly I slip, and I start to fall. Just falling, ahh ahh, I'll never forget the terror. When suddenly I realize "Holy shit, Hansel, haven't you been smoking Peyote for six straight days, and couldn't some of this maybe be in your head?"
Derek Zoolander: And?
Hansel: And it was. I was totally fine. I've never even been to Mount Vesuvius.
