Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Zoolander is a broad, spoofy comedy with plenty of mature content. There's an orgy between the three main characters (played by Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, and Christine Taylor) and a few other folks that includes brief glimpses of skin, though nothing explicit. One main character talks about having an eating disorder, and others respond as if that's a good thing. There's talk of drug use, and characters get really drunk before the orgy scene. Though it's played for laughs, the main characters are threatened with death several times -- and in an early scene, a few supporting characters are killed abruptly. Language includes "s--t," "d--k," and one "f--k."
The audience sees glimpses of and hears discussion about an orgy (nothing explicit shown). Flirting, etc.
Characters are killed in an abrupt but comic manner (fire at a gas station), and the plot involves a political assassination.
Language includes "s--t," "d--k," and one "f--k."
Ultimately it's better to work together than focus on rivalry and competition. There's more to life than parties and looking good. Also a lot of shallow behavior on display, though.
Many products are visible throughout the film.
