Product Description

Amazon.ca

While the premise of Ben Stiller's Zoolander, a film about an intellectually challenged fashion model cum unwitting international assassin, sounds decidedly loopy, it's a movie with a smartly campy soundtrack to match, trading heavily on vintage '70s and '80s kitsch and covers. The Wiseguys' ubiquitous runway/car commercial/ballpark fave "Start the Commotion" kicks things into an infectious groove carried on by Frankie Goes to Hollywood's "Relax" (also covered flaccidly by Powerman 5000). But contemporary cuts (Orgy's "Faces," "Ruffneck" by the Freestylers, the Crystal Method's "Now Is the Time") take a back seat to modern covers that range from the sublime (Rufus Wainwright crooning a heartfelt take on the Hollies' "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother"; the Wallflowers' subdued reading of the Bee Gees' "I Started a Joke") to comparatively ridiculous (Nikka Costa and Gwen Stefani turning in pale impressions of Debbie Harry and Donna Summer on "Call Me" and "Love to Love You Baby," respectively). Herbie Hancock's "Rockit" and the ever-sly Moby's tasty sub-mix of Michael Jackson's hit "Beat It" also neatly bookend 15 years of club beats. -Jerry McCulley

5.0 out of 5 stars perfection Feb. 16 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
this album was pure genius. major props to whoever came up with this mix of songs for Zoolander (quickly becoming a favorite of mine). i especially like the choice of nikka costa's call me. it's so bouncy and fun, just like the plot of Zoolander. i think the music complements the movie very well and it's great to listen to if you just want to jump up and dance around.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Soundtrack Jan. 15 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is an amazing soundtrack. They even have both versions of Relax. Powerman 5000's remix is GREAT if you like industrial/rock. Even if you don't its a great song. If you dont like that version you can always go back to the oldie version :) They have Beat It remixed by Moby. Now THAT'S a unique track. He did an amazing job sampling the song. The Wiseguys also are important on this soundtrack with Start the Commotion. BT has a great song for you BT fans. All of the songs on this CD fit in great with the movie. This is definatly one of the best soundtracks I have heard in a long time.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Upbeat Soundtrack Nov. 5 2002
Format:Audio CD
An upbeat collection of music from the upbeat hilarious movie, where "up" and "beat" are equal partners. This is fluffy pop music with a strong rhythmic backbone, suitable as backdrop for action secquences and catwalk performances of your own. This music will make you want to strut your stuff, if nothing else. There are one or two quirky selections in the material that keep the album from devolving into dancemix monotony. But even those numbers that are danceable in a nouveau noir club kind of way have more soul and interest than your typical club mix. Most people will find no new material in this collection, but will greet each selection as a long lost (or even familiar) friend.

5.0 out of 5 stars worth it for Rufus ... Nov. 4 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I'd ever really appreciated the Hollies song "He Ain't Heavy...He's My Brother" until I heard Rufus Wainwright's version on this soundtrack. This single track is worth the price of CD, no question. Awesome voice, awesome conviction, awesome arrangement. It takes my breath away every time I hear it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Yawn -- it was OK Nov. 2 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I loved the movie. The soundtrack seemed great. I listened to the music here on Amazon.com before buying the CD. So, I don't know, it was rather repetitive and boring to me. However, my kids and husband like it...Personally I think you need the movie to go with this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great mix! June 21 2002
Format:Audio CD
Zoolander is just a great hysterical movie to begin with! Much more, this soundtrack is great also! Just in case some of you can't figure it out, this is music from the motion piture, not the original score. I don't even if there was one! Anyway, great music choices for one CD. One of those rare CD's you can just listen to the whole thing whithout changing tracks. A good backround music CD. I especially like the original version of Relax and the new mixed version. I also like Moby's mixed dance beat of Michael Jackson's of Beat It. It all is really good music so it is hard to pick favorites! Anyway, good music to get in any case.

Two words... Rufus Wainwright...
Soundtracks (like Ben Siller/Will Farrell movies) are typically hit or miss, but when the divine Rufus Wainwright is thrown into the mix, it's... Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars For most, worth it because of the wiseguys
"start the commotion" the slowly rising in fame song that was first heard by most Americans on a car commercial, and on all Zoolander previews, will be enough of a reason... Read more
