    It's pretty fun, and at 89 minutes can't be accused of wearing out its welcome. Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson are, as always, a hoot together (the "walk-off" sequence is a delight) and the way in which the film threads together fashion industry nonsense and spy movie cliches is clever.
    Tons of cameos, too. I believe that's Vince Vaughn as one of Zoolander's silent brothers, but I'm not sure he took a credit. And there's a gag at the tail end of the film, involving a statue, that's inspired.
    I thought the removal of the Twin Towers from a sequence or two was a well-intentioned mistake. They were there when the movie was made, let em stay in.

    So I'm not the only one who thought that the towers were missing? What I don't get is, how can they remove the towers digitally and reprint all the reels in less than 2 weeks?

    I think the funniest part was Zoolander and his friends driving around and having the gasoline fight.

    Saw Zoolander with JohnS and Mike Deakin in LA on Sunday. Incredibly stupid movie, but I got my moneys worth cause I was laughing all the way to the end. JohnS can confirm that [​IMG]
