A to Z Blogging Challenge: Movie Memories
Blogging about the movies that made an impact on my life
Today is the last day of the A to Z Blogging Challenge and I want to take this opportunity to give a shout-out to all the bloggers out there who have persevered to the end. It's been an exhausting 30 days, but very rewarding. I've enjoyed meeting new bloggers and reading blogs that I never would have found if not for this challenge. Thanks to all who are following and commenting. Blog on!
And now for the Letter "Z":
Zoolander (2001) is a bizarre parody of the fashion industry and male modeling.
Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) is an award-winning male model who is "really, really, ridiculously good-looking." Hansel (Owen Wilson) is his nemesis, a model who wins Male Model of the Year. Hansel's career is just beginning and Derek's popularity is starting to fade. After a "walk off" duel, they become friends and join forces against Mugatu (Will Ferrell), a fashion designer who is plotting the assassination of the Prime Minister of Malaysia.
I heard about Zoolander from my son and we watched it together when he was home from college for a visit. It's one of my favorite mother/son movie memories.
Derek's cell phone is the size of a domino.
The Walk-Off --- Derek and Hansel have a walk-off duel.
Derek and Hansel try to figure out how to get the files out of a computer; the scene escalates into 2001: A Space Odyssey.
DEREK: You think that you're too cool for school, but I have a newsflash for you Walter Cronkite... you aren't.
