4.0 out of 5 stars "Really, really ridiculously good DVD", 26 Aug. 2004
This review is from: Zoolander [DVD] [2001] (DVD)
Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson are back again in this hilarious insight into the male modelling profession. Derek Zoolander (Stiller), a veteran model, finds himself faced with a rival rookie model in the form of Hansel (Wilson). Not only this, but Derek finds himself wound up in fashion designer Mugatu's (Will Ferrell) plan to kill the Prime Minister of Malaysia.
As you can tell, this film is not to be taken seriously and all thoughts of realism should be left behind before you press play. 'Zoolander' has a great array of characters, each with their own comedic style and a certain amount of quirkiness. That said, the character of Matilda (Taylor) leaves me slightly cold, but the others more than make up for it, not to mention the endless stream of cameos.
'Zoolander' is a great comedy film which hints that-just maybe-there could be more to the male modelling profession than being "really, really ridiculously good looking". I recommend you check it out.

4.0 out of 5 stars I like their style, I like their moves, 26 Aug. 2004
In this remake of the classic '70s hit, Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson team up again-this time as David Starsky (Stiller) and Ken Hutchinson (Wilson). Although a modern film, 'Starsky and Hutch' has a distinct 70s feel to it, from the camera work to the plot line. However, I do not feel that avid fans of the series will warm to this adaptation, which almost parodies the original.
If this film is viewed without any prejudices or the need for a serious story, 'Starsky and Hutch' is a very enjoyable experience. The jokes- both subtle and blatant-are very funny, with Stiller and Wilson adding their own style to the crime-fighting duo, and there are many great performances from Snoop Dogg, Will Ferrel, Vince Vaughn and Juliette Lewis.
The film keeps the humour constant throughout, although some of the jokes don't quite hit the mark. Hilarious scenes such as Starsky's dance-off with Rick (Har Mar Superstar) are interwoven with some more emotional moments between the pair, which can bring up the question of how far their relationship goes...but, as director Todd Phillips explains, the slight homoerotic subtext is "played just for laughs".
As a DVD, it leaves much to be desired. There's the usual gag reel, director's commentary and theatrical trailers, yet no real insight into the making of the film. Yet overall, I found 'Starsky and Hutch' hilarious, and would highly recommend it. Just don't take it too seriously.
