Zoolander II streaming on Hulu


I’ll be honest, I went to see the movie looking forward to that 5-second cameo by Willie Nelson, playing himself.  You know it’s so fun to see Willie on the Big Screen. But I ended up laughing throughout the whole movie. There are so many cameos, besides Willie. Everyone must like Ben Stiller and Scott Rudin, because there are so many celebrities in this, it seemed like anyone who was available said yes.  Sting, Justin Bieber, Fred Armisen, Olivia Munn, Kristen Wiig, even astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, and many famous fashion designers, too.  And it’s a beautiful postcard for Rome; where it (parts of it anyway) were filmed.

It’s a trippy movie, the kind that if it was 1970 in Lincoln, Nebraska, we would have woke up our stoner friends in our little commune on “O” street,  enjoyed a wake and bake (but we didn’t call it that, we just called it morning), and went to the early showing of Zoolander II.  We’d smuggle in our own bags of popcorn and pop, and watch the movie all day until they made us leave or we ran out of snacks.

It is really funny. The writing is clever. And Stiller and Owen Wilson and Penelope Cruz are having so much fun.

It’s streaming on Hulu now, and probably out on cd, too, if you want a good laugh. Even if you don’t smoke pot, you’ll like it, but if you smoke pot, you’ll really like it.
