  1. Exuberant and insidiously funny satire.
  2. 83
    Works like a funnier "Austin Powers" -- you laugh just enough to want to see the whole thing again.
  3. 80
    The result is a freakishly potent farce.
  4. 63
    A hit-and-miss affair, but it's smart and good-natured enough to guarantee Stiller an open invitation to host VH1's annual Fashion Awards.
  5. 60
    It's to Stiller's credit that he can sustain the joke for the length of the movie, but just barely. Ten more minutes of Zoolander would have been 10 minutes too many.
  6. 50
    A sometimes inspired but sputtering parody of the fashion industry. It's desperate to please, yet never unzips the fancy pants of haute couture.
  7. 20
    Isn't absurd enough to be funny.

Of course this film is a little stupid but it makes up for being funny. I'm looking forward to the long awaited sequel to this film.

    A completely accurate documentary about the intelligence level of male fashion models. Very educational.

    I couldn't watch through the first time. Tried watching it again today, and I still couldn't finish through the end. It's that I couldn't watch through the first time. Tried watching it again today, and I still couldn't finish through the end. It's that bad. Its one of those movies that try too hard to force you to get the joke in every scene. You think the all-star cast/cameos that signed into the project read the script knew better. But it sucks. If K-mart or Old Navy were to produced movies, it would be this. The movie wasn't stupid-funny, but stupid-lame. Expand
