Has a handful of hilarious moments (e.g., the gasoline fight, the various cameos), but most of the movie is just OK.

This is not a stupid movie. Saying it's stupid is like saying This Is Spinal Tap is stupid because the band Spinal Tap is stupid. It should go without saying that Zoolander is nowhere near as funny (or as smart) as This Is Spinal Tap, but it sure as hell isn't stupid the way an Adam Sandler movie or a bad Jim Carrey movie is stupid. However, the film rarely goes beyond being "amusing," and some jokes fall flat.

Ben Stiller, for me, isn't an actor that sells a film. He's been in far too many movies that are just terribly mediocre. However he has been in a select few impressive films. While Zoolander isn't the highpoint of his career it is undeniably funny. Granted it's stupid humour but what the hell it's laugh out loud funny regardless.

The absurdity manages to stay funny, the plot's predictable, but it doesn't matter. Male models and 2001 references can't be too bad.

Perhaps the greatest clue into the crazed comic mindset of Ben Stiller, this also might be the most consistently funny, memorable, and incisive film he has done. Very seldomly half-hearted, and when it's on, it has created some of the biggest laughs of my time. Key scene: Zoolander and the roomies head out to get smoothies.

"Terrence Malick is also said to be such a fan of Zoolander, the 2001 send-up of the fashion world, that colleagues say he watches it regularly and likes to quote it. Ben Stiller, the star of the film, once dressed up in character and recorded him a special birthday video message."

This film has a blurred line between funny and simply bizarre. I'm kind of indifferent towards it but failing when trying to remove one's underwear while still wearing trousers does make one cringingly laugh a bit in the I felt that sense.

It's so stupid, but so very funny. It has a few memorable quotes. It's not the best comedy ever made, but it entertains the shit out of me. "Is there anything more to life than being really really really ridiculously good-looking?" I wonder that all the time

An apocalyptically thick-headed male model (Ben Stiller) is made the unwitting pawn of an evil fashion syndicate--who want him to assassinate the progessive PM of Malaysia. Stiller, one of the more unexpected auteurs out there, doesn't exactly make a funny film here (though there are some funny moments, especially thanks to Will Ferrell's Mugatu), but he certainly doesn't go for the cheap--or expected--laughs either, and the film has its own odd, likable vibe. Excuse while I go Blue Steel.

Still enjoyable all these years after its initial release, Zoolander is probably still the best thing Ben Stiller has ever done. It helps that he gets great performances from Wilson and Ferrell. The film consistently hits the right tone of over-the-top silliness to keep one from thinking too carefully about the ludicrous plot. And of course, there's that fantastic gas station scene: Orange Mocha Frappuccino!

Stiller's pucker-faced lead is annoying more often than funny, but he has his moments ("Mer-man!") and fortunately, the model-world satire he's a part of is laugh-out-loud outrageous (see the underground walk-off; wacky final runway show), his counterpart Wilson's smooth but equally dim-witted model is a riot (see his awards intro video), and well, people being dumb is just pretty funny most of the time (case in point: the ridiculous gasoline fight; 2001 ape spoof: "They're IN the computer!")

Hmmm, now that I see it the 2nd time, I look at it in a different way. It's nowhere as stupid, as I thought it was. Actually, the script is quite strong with many, many cleverly put references. However, some gags are quite weak and don't click the way they should but it's safe to say, that a great portion of it is very good.

Zoolander is a film that needed to tie in its plot more often, cast a different actor than Ben Stiller as its lead, and needed to finish much stronger. Despite all this, it's funny, and that's by far the most important point in a comedy. Since I ended up laughing a lot more than I thought I would with a comedy about a stupid person, I have to give Zoolander a pass. I simply had fun, and that's all you need with this type of film.

Not necessarily my type of film, though generally funny. Various cameos of stars makes the movie what it is. The fact that they pulled off making one model seem to be such a household name makes me respect the directors. Great David Bowie cameo.

I didn't expect a silly comedy about a vacuous model to touch on issues like homelessness, child labor, familial estrangement or body image issues in the almost-semi-serious way it did. I did expect something a bit funnier, though. It got fewer laughs out of me than quizzical looks. I still enjoyed this film, but Stiller did a much better job with The Cable Guy.

Zoolander is one of those rare comedy movies from the early 2000s that holds up. There are some dated jokes but for the most part this movie holds up nearly twenty years later. There are some great cameo appearances that are somewhat under-utilized but they don't take anything away from the movie. Jerry Stiller does a fantastic job in this movie. He upstages his own son at points. This is one of Farrell's iconic performances. The scene with the reading center is still uproarious.

On the surface, Zoolander is a mindless parody of the world of fashion models, and more closely or frequently you watch it, it will become clear that it is indeed thoroughly mindless but still incredibly funny. It's not trying to be a brilliant film, but it's not entirely stupid either. It does its job of being a screwball comedy, the likes of which are quite rare in recent years. Really good!

Ben Stiller directed, wrote, and stars in this farce about a brainless male model uncovering a secret conspiracy inside the underbelly of the fashion world. Fantastic performances from Owen Wilson as rival turned ally and especially Will Ferrell as the evil "Mugatu" give the movie a lot of needed support.
