  • When I first saw this movie I thought it was really going to be stupid

      When I first saw this movie I thought it was really going to be stupid. And I was right. But with actors like Will Ferrell and Owen Wilson aboard for the laughs, you can expect all the lame jokes to be illustrated in full effect.

      Zoolander is short for Derek Zoolander. He is supposed to be a famous male model.

      And the film

      itself is a parody about the extreme nature of the fashion and beauty industry, from a male model’s perspective. I absolutely love the way they exaggerate the things about male models that make them really silly.

      The faces made on the runway, the poses, the extreme clothes, and all the accoutrement that comes with being in this kind of industry, has been poked fun of in this ...

      • film. There were times when I thought the comedy was a little over the top.

        I would have liked to see the kind of subtlety that usually accompanies this type of humor. Seth Rogen is really good at conveying that in his films.

        He does it with dry humor. This film has dry humor too, but it’s so shrouded in extreme antics that

        those jokes typically fall flat in favor of the sloppy, over the top giggles.

        There are several cameos, like Winona Ryder. These give the film a little credence.

        But when famous celebs make cameos in movies like this, it’s usually because they need money and the offers for better, more serious films aren’t coming their way. This is a fun movie if you like your comedy really really silly.
