If the Malaysians made a comedy about the assassination of the president of the United States because of his opposition to slavery, it would seem approximately as funny to us as Zoolander would seem to them.

Satan agreed to shave 10 minutes off my time in Hell -- I sat through Zoolander (so you don't have to).

In a different world, the film would be just another five-minute skit blown up until it's not funny anymore; as it is, it's tasteless and offensive to boot.

A film with good intentions and fairly meaningless execution.

...a fashion "mis"-statement -- Zoolander is a one-note joke who shouldn't have gone beyond the boundaries of a 4-H club skit being performed at a Shriner's convention.

A fashion spoof draped over the bones of a puerile conspiracy adventure, this vanity comedy fails at every level barring its incidental details.

Stiller obviously intended this to be silly, mindless fluff. It seldom rises above dumb and boring.

Pure silliness, a no-brainer, just-sit-back-and-laugh feature.

The most disappointing thing about Stiller's film is that all it appears to be saying is that male models don't seem to have a lot between the ears.

Si en verdad quiere pasar un buen rato, mejor rente un video o adquiera el soundtrack

This comedy far exceeds the time span over which watching people acting dumb and making funny faces remains funny.

Even with the director hustling his cast like a fashion-show martinet, there's only so much cartoon emoting to be done before we're anticipating a TV commercial break.

Maybe another rewrite, maybe an extra writer, maybe a better concept...

Stiller's third outing as feature-film director is as vacant as its protagonist's pretty (as if) head.

Zoolander's superficial satire is more smarmy than charming.

...confuses comedy with general stupidity, allowing the characters to spout out lines of idiocy as if the effort is enough to warrant laughs.

Where did the wit go? Where did the cleverness behind the laughter go? Gaylord Focker, help us! Mr. Furious, SAVE US!

My two companions and I definitely laughed at certain points, and we generally admired the shrewd production design, but something important was missing.

Zoolander stands just below the middle of the crowd of "this-in-not-a-cerebral comedy" genre, no better, no worse.
