Z is for Zoolander which is a silly movie really, but it never fails to make me laugh. My sister and I will sometimes text each other Zoolander quotes randomly because it’s guaranteed to make us smile. πŸ™‚

If you can quote Zoolander with me, we are instant buddies πŸ˜‰

Zoolander stars the hilarious Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Will Farrell, and a host of cameos like David Duchovny, Billy Zane, Natalie Portman, Vince Vaughn, David Bowie, and even a Bet You Didn’t Know This pre-True Blood Alexander Skaarsgard. See if you recognize him. πŸ™‚

Ben Stiller takes us into the world of male modeling as the intellectually challenged Derek Zoolander. Derek soon discovers there must be more to life than being really really ridiculously good looking.

That’s pretty much the plot. But it’s just comedic gold.

Below I give you my favorite Zoolander quotes, some of which may not make sense out of context, but if you are a Zoolander fan, you’ll know them. πŸ™‚

And with that, I bid adieu to this A to Z challenge! It’s been a great experience and I will definitely have to do this again next year. It has been a pleasure exploring other blogs and getting to ‘meet’ new people and getting to know some of you better.

Big hugs!!


Derek Zoolander: Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?


J.P. Prewitt: Male models don’t think for themselves.
Derek Zoolander: That’s not true!
J.P. Prewitt: Yes it is, Derek.
Derek Zoolander: [meekly] Okay.


Mugatu: Hansel… so hot right now… Hansel.


Derek, presented with a model of a building for his proposed school:
Derek Zoolander: What is this? A center for ants? How can we be expected to teach children to learn how to read… if they can’t even fit inside the building?
Mugatu: Derek, this is just a small…
Derek Zoolander: I don’t wanna hear your excuses! The building has to be at least… three times bigger than this!


Hansel: Listen to your friend Billy Zane, he’s a cool dude!


Brint/Meekus/Rufus: [in unison] Orange Mocha Frappuccino!


Billy Zane: It’s a walk-off!

  1. Maybe we should do something more meaningful with our lives.Like helping people.
    Uh, what people Derek?
    I don’t know, people who need help!

    Oh and also that quote from Hansel: I was always more interested in what bark was made out of, on a tree.

    LOVE Zoolander, it’s such a quotable film! I haven’t watched it in a little while actually (used to watch it all the time), I shall have to remedy that. Great choice for your final Z post! And well done for making it to the end of A to Z!

  2. we can be friends. I’m not good at quoting films, but just giving the model looks is hysterical. Ben Stiller is greatness. Congrats on Z!!!!!

  3. WHAT IS THIS? A center for ants!? How can we be expected to teach children to learn how to read…if they can’t even fit inside the building?!

    God, I love Zoolander. I’m regretting my choice for ‘Z’ right now, thinking of all the amazing quotes I could have too πŸ˜‰ Thanks for all the amazing A-Z posts, and congratulations to us on making it the whole way through!

    1. Oh, I love that one.

      And Ben Stiller was just freakin’ awesome as Derek Zoolander. But I do love Will Farrell too!
