Tropic Thunder [Original Soundtrack]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
The soundtrack for Dreamworks' action film parody Tropic Thunder is a fun but slight listen that plays out like an old late-'70s K-Tel compilation with a few bonus cuts from the future. There's not much new here to entice listeners outside of the Crystal Method's occasionally funny montage of movie quips "The Name of the Game [The Crystal Method's Big A** T.T. Mix]" and cast member
apper Brandon T. Jackson's impossibly lewd and hilarious party jam "I Love tha P***y." The collection is chock-full of iconic '60s classic rock tracks like "Ball of Confusion That's What the World Is Today" Temptations, "Run Through the Jungle" ...

apper Brandon T. Jackson's impossibly lewd and hilarious party jam "I Love tha P***y." The collection is chock-full of iconic '60s classic rock tracks like "Ball of Confusion That's What the World Is Today" Temptations, "Run Through the Jungle" Creedence Clearwater Revival, "I'd Love to Change the World" Ten Years After, "The Pusher" Steppenwolf, "Frankenstein" Edgar Winter Group, and of course, "War" Edwin Starr. It's a production choice that not so subtly mirrors iconic depictions of the Vietnam War like Platoon, Full Metal Jacket, and even Forrest Gump. Rounded out by left-field 1990 ambient
ew age hit "Sadeness, Pt. 1" from Enigma, MC Hammer's infamous fleecing of Rick James' "Super Freak," "U Can't Touch This," Ja'net Dubois' "Movin' on Up" from The Jeffersons, and Dan Hill's smarmy, classic soft rock ballad "Sometimes When We Touch," Tropic Thunder may go in one ear and out the other, but at least it feels good.
