I watched Zoolander tonight. I feel dumber for having watched it. Ben Stiller can be a really funny guy. But sometimes he just tries waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too hard. This wasn't even good in a bad way, and I *love* good in a bad way. Quality bad movies are my thing.... and this was just putrid. Little wonder that it was a VH1 movie.
And little wonder that it had several mtv alums in the cast.

Does anyone else immediately think of "Small Wonder" (shit gaddamn I love IMDB) whenever someone says "little wonder"?
And is that thought immediately followed by random musings about Punky Brewster?

Anyway ... seriously.... Zoolander was *so* bad and lame. I didn't laugh or crack a smile.. and I'm already in a good mood. Those who know me know that I am *really* easy to make laugh when I'm in the mood to.

This was horribly lame.

I actually kind of want someone to tell me why it was good. I don't understand where or how it was funny.
Plus there's a Fred Durst cameo... that can never be a good thing.

The "listen to my dog" line was good now that I think of it.

And Milla Jovovich with her extreme "Moose and Squirrell" accent was kinda funny.. but yeah.

Part of it is Will Ferrell. I dug him on saturday night, but he's sort of just 'that weird guy who will be weird for us' whenever he's in a movie.

I know it was a silly movie... but I dunno.. it tried way too hard to be silly. The original zoolander skit was *really* funny, but like most skits, when they stretched it into a movie, everyone started trying too hard.

Hehe.. and ya know, I think we just have wildly different taste in movies.
But that's okay, you're Alicia, so you still rock.
