Ben Stiller's mockery of Joaquin (23 February 2009)


I thought Stiller's bit was mean, too, but not effectively so. He enjoyed being Joaquin too much, and who wouldn't?--while Joaquin plays with/feels out dropping out, being impromptu, in a way which suggests he might just get real about it, Stiller and others can go mean at Hollywood "scripting" in films like Tropic Thunder, but will remain Zoolander dancing monkeys.
