All Throwback Thursday Quizzo & Movie Events are 21+ Only
If moisture is the essence of wetness, and wetness is the essence of beauty, then what better way to ring in the rainy month of April than this outrageous send-up of fashion, celebrity, and orange mocha frappuccinos? International male supermodel Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) isn’t just really, really, ridiculously good-looking; he may also be the world’s only hope to take down the fashion industry’s devious plot to assassinate the prime minister of Malaysia. Armed with perfect bone structure and aided by walk-off opponent-turned-friend Hansel (Owen Wilson), Derek works to stop down evil designer Mugatu (Will Ferrell) before it’s too late. Chock-full of celebrity cameos and hilarious quotable dialogue, this cult classic is hilarious, action-packed, and sooo hot right now.
Cast: Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Will Ferrell, Christine Taylor
