A to Z Movies: Zoolander

07 Oct

Title: Zoolander

Year Released/Rating: 2001 R

Starring: Ben Stiller, Will Ferrell, Owen Wilson

Directed By: Ben Stiller

Written By: Drake Sather, Ben Stiller, John Hamburg

Star Rating:  5 /5 stars

Trivia: Ben Stiller wrote David Bowie’s scene as judge of the walk-off into the script without knowing for sure whether he would agree to it.

This movie is so silly and idiotic it is most amazing!  I love the little one liners here and there.  The looks of the actors get me every time.  The best part is all the cameos here and there.  Jon Voight–genius and gruff.  Vince Vaughn–love the looks.  Billy Zane–so ridiculous he’s amazing.  David Bowie–makes any movie better.  I am especially fond of Katinka.  But my absolute favorite is David Duchovny.  He is the best little side character ever.  This role is one of the best things he ever did.

Best Bits: 

Mugatu: They’re break-dance fighting.
Billy Zane: It’s a walk-off!
Derek Zoolander: But why male models?
J.P. Prewitt: Are you serious? I just told you that a moment ago.
Derek Zoolander: I’m not an ambi-turner.
Derek Zoolander: Or are you here to tell me what a bad eugoogoolizer I am?
Matilda: A what?
Derek Zoolander: A eugoogoolizer… one who speaks at funerals.
[Matilda looks at Derek confused]
Derek Zoolander: Or did you think I was too stupid to know what a eugoogooly was?
[a judge is needed for the “walk-off”]
David Bowie: If nobody has any objections, I believe I might be of service.
[after he pokes a girl with a pin]
Mugatu: Oh, I’m sorry, did my pin get in the way of your ass? Do me a favor and lose five pounds immediately or get out of my building like now!
Mugatu: It’s that damn Hansel! He’s so hot right now!
Mugatu: Obey my dog!
Derek Zoolander: How can we be expected to teach children to learn how to read if they can’t even fit inside the building?
