    A Fun Action Comedy Movie With A Great Cast!

    Fantasitc. I see where Tropic Thunder got some of thier ideas, but I have to say, this is so much better. It's smarter. That's probably why the cameos are so much better. This is an all star cast and non-stop laughs. A great Friday night popcorn movie!
