Director: Ben Stiller
Starring: Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Milla Jovovich, Jerry Stiller, Will Ferrell, David Duchovny
About a very famous and very stupid male model who unknowingly gets involved with an international terrorist plot to assassinate a leader and figurehead.
In a world where good comedies are far and few between, this was one of the last great comedies. Let’s be honest, it is incredibly stupid, but it is trying to be incredibly stupid and it works brilliantly.
The cast is tremendous and you can really see Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller’s chemistry shine in this film. The laughs are plentiful and absurd. Complete this movie with a wild list of cameos from David Bowie to Andy Dick and you have a brilliant comedy from the early 2000’s. While I will always applaud a smart comedy, I can go on a cruise control and laugh at this one with glee.
If you are looking for the funniest films in the last twenty years, Zoolander should make your list. (Oh, and for the most part skip the sequel)
