Limited Appeal

If you are a dedicated follower of fashion, Zoolander might be of special interest to you. Die Hard Ben Stiller fans might appreciate this as well. However, the rest of us will find this as a middle of the road comedy that plays off the joke that models are self absorbed and quite stupid.

I will admit that Ben Stiller's facial expressions and speech patterns are quite comical. The pacing is pretty decent and the gasoline fight scene is totally off the wall. However the cyber effects get a bit annoying after a while.

Try something else by Ben Stiller as the laugh appeal is limited.

No matter how much I try to convince people that Zoolander is an awesome movie, some just won't believe me, and I can accept that, even if i don't personally agree.      For those of you who don't know, Zoolander is a movie about male models Derek Zoolander …

With preening self-importance and pouty narcissism already baked into the industry's DNA - torturing couture fashion almost certainly lacks good sportsmanship.

Possibly my favorite Ben Stiller movie. Some of the best one liners come from this movie and if you don't know anything about fashion...you'll still love it

Stupidly funny, Ben Stiller takes us into the cut-throat world of male modeling. Will Ferrell plays an amazing villain.

Campy done well. Ben Stiller and cast do an excellent job in this parody of the fashion industry.

"I'm pretty sure there's a lot more to life than being really, really, ridiculously good looking. And I plan on finding out what that is". Took the words right out of my mouth... ;D
