Zoolander



We watched Zoolander last night, and it was brilliant. I was saying that i remember watching it at the cinema with edmund and richard w, they came out and hated it (dismissed it as "inane piffle" or some such overstated/wordy verdict i don't doubt) , whereas i was all too willing to award it cult status right there and then (funnily enough the exact same thing happened when we saw vanilla sky which they panned but i enjoyed - fundamentally because of the soundtrack and seeing how it deviated from the spanish original)


Owen Wilson is absolutely brilliant in this film, he is pretty cool. david duchovny puts in a brilliant cameo as a trampie former hand model conspiracy theorist type and it has david bowie in as well. and will ferrel is good in this film (cue people jumping on my back talking about gags to laugh ratios snore snore, it's a good film watch it without preconceptions and you'll enjoy it - unless you're dull.. and then there's no hope)

Hey, you want a non-wordy criticism?

What a load of utter unfunny crap Zoolander is.

I hated Vanilla Sky precisely *because* it was pretentious bollocks with a dire ending, not because *I'm* pretentious! That's just pure coincidence dude.

There we go. Ah yes, and Will Ferrell is and always will be a comic black hole.

LIES it's all LIES!
zoolander is a laugh a minute epic of masterful proportions (in your lingo chandler) and only the most vegetative cynic would not be moved by it.

Oh, and 'inane piffle'? That's gotta be Richard. I like thousands of inane films with about as much depth and profundity as a piece of tissue (Naked Gun trilogy, Road Trip etc etc).

are we using ">" to signify less than (value)?

yeh i know i was referring to what's on the right of the equation

all universals/abstracta and shit anyway

who's to say that we should interpret it as "greater than" and not "less than". not fixed and shit, interpretation and shit. painting of man going up the hill and shit. or coming down and shit.

Matt- Zoolander better than Dodgeball?! What the hell?! Dodgeball is sublime comic genius. I'll readily accept that both are better than *me*, but geeze.

No mate, dodgeball is total gash in light of zoolander. vaughan is poor, at least comically, in the light of wilson. stiller faultless throughout both

Rubbish! You all know damn well that Dodgeball is vastly superior. Vince Vaughn has more comedic appreciation in his eyebrow than Owen Wilson has in his entire body.
