Zoolander: completely absurd, but i like it

in getyerlearnon •  6 months ago

I actually went to go see this movie by accident. We went to a massive theater in Chicago to see Batman, which was playing in 7 theaters but all of them were sold out. The only other theater was playing this and we wanted to see a movie so we went to go see Zoolander; Batman would have to wait.

If you haven't seen it and expect any sort of profound story just throw out that nonsensical thought now. This movie is silly and silly is wonderful sometimes. Enter the world of male modeling with Ben Stiller and his buddy Owen Wilson to see the dark underbelly of the modeling industry.

I know that to this day I can pose for "blue steel" anytime someone is taking photos and at least one of the people in my crew is aware of what i am doing.

this pose is very different from his other poses

Anytime that someone is doing something just slightly dangerous I enjoy quoting the film by saying " Just because we have chiseled abs and stunning features, it doesn't mean that we, too, can't not die in a freak gasoline fight accident."

The film is absurd, but with it being chock full of cameos and ridiculous dialogue between people that think the world of themselves but still somehow lack that capacity to think, it is very entertaining. I laughed a lot (although the sequel was not very good.)

I'm trying to keep it light-hearted tonight so if you find yourself in need of silly laughs, this one is a good one to turn to. As far as comedies are concerned I give this film a 8 / 10. Overall i give it a 6.5 / 10 because, well, it is just too dumb to award any more than that.

It's one of those movies I feel like I can actually leave my brain and feelings behind and just have a good time watching an insanely absurd plot. I think this movie was what brought Owen Wilson a bit to limelight

I think 6.5 is fair.
It is kinda silly, but I think it was worth the watch,
even though I, like you, watched it by accident.

Its really very funny movie, and I give it 7/10 points, because Ben Stiller is very good and most famous in funniest hero's list.

Your feelings are very nice and you feel very much in your words. @gooddream

omg I should watch this movie again!
Super goofy!
Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson are two of my favorite actors! 😂😂😂

i haven't watched it
being a comedy lover
i think 8/10 deserves a shot

Every once in a while a good movie comes from Ben Stiller. It doesn't happen often, but that's what makes it more mystical...you never know when it's going to happen :) Zoolander 1 was nice.

This movie is amazing. I have fun every time I watch this movie. Everything about it is funny. It's almost indescribable how ridiculous (ridiculous as in really really goofy/silly) Zoolander is. I'm not big on Ben Stiller's work. I disliked both "Meet the" films, and I didn't like "Dodgeball". But he was...amazing in this movie.
This is what comedy should be all about. It's surely a movie that you could quote on forever. And what really makes it unique is that if you enjoy the jokes, and get a feel for the goofy atmosphere, you really don't care about the story. In fact, you SHOULDN'T care. I would rate it a 7/10 tho.
