With this week’s return of Derek Zoolander, we will make our long awaited return to the land of the really, really, ridiculously good looking. In addition to being really good looking, Zoolander and his friend Hansel are also really stupid. Most of the time stupid characters are simply sidekicks meant to make the hero look smart by comparison.

Sometimes, however, on rare occasions, stupid people can be done so well that the audience will follow them wherever they go. They achieve a level of brilliance within their own idiocy. But creating a truly beloved moron is no simple task. It’s so easy for a character to be as annoying to the audience as they are to the other people on screen. But we came up with a list of characters that we love even though they’re dumb as rocks.

Alan Garner - The Hangover
Everybody has that one friend. Luckily, for most of us he’s not as bad as Alan Garner. Don’t let the beard fool you, he’s a child. Alan appears to have stopped maturing and educating himself somewhere around the age of 10-years-old. He probably has more in common with Dustin Hoffman in Rainman than he realizes. He seems to be completely clueless to the world around him, especially his friends, who don’t even hide their varying degrees of disdain they have for the man. But the childlike joy is part of what we love about him. We wouldn’t have him any other way.
