The original DVD and a 2014 Blu-ray (with the same green and white artwork) that was very briefly available but pulled from shelves use the original plain end credits sequence with names in flying blue text and no other visuals, transitioning to the crawl a few moments before the music changes. The 2016 Blu-ray (with new extras) changes those credits to the alternate ones (previously available as an extra feature), with Mugatu dancing around clips of the movie illustrating each actor; it then abruptly changes music when the crawl starts (and leaves the last portion of the crawl silent), giving an overall sloppy feel. The original version of the credits does not appear to be available on this edition. The framing of the movie overall seems a little iffy on the 2016 edition as well. See more »
I didn't expect this to be spectacular, but I also didn't expect it to be so totally bad that I kept wondering why on earth I was even watching it. The really sad thing is that it COULD have been good. Stiller Sr., Stiller Jr., Wilson, and Ferrell are quite capable of being funny, and a spoof of the fashion industry is a good idea, but the movie is ruined by a terrible script. They were obviously going for the so-stupid-it's-funny brand of humor, but they overdid it in the stupidness department, and it resulted in a movie that's so-stupid-it's-unwatchable. I couldn't believe it when they actually had a wedgie joke. You know a comedy is getting desperate for laughs when it throws in a wedgie joke. I admit there are a few good jokes in here (the "Space Odyssey" parody was great), but not nearly enough to save it.
I give "Zoolander" 3 stars, which also happens to be the same amount of times I laughed.
