Tropic Thunder

Ben Stiller's satirical look at Hollywood, Tropic Thunder concerns the production of an epic Vietnam War film that quickly derails thanks to the giant egos of everyone involved in the production. Stiller stars as Tugg Speedman, an action hero trying to segue out of that genre. Jack Black plays Jeff Portnoy, a drug-addicted fat comic also attempting to change his image by taking on such a serious film. They star alongside Kirk Lazarus (Robert Downey Jr.), one of the world's most awarded actors, and a man who insists on immersing himself totally in a role. In this case, that means Lazarus has had his skin dyed in order to portray an African-American soldier. After their outrageous behavior lands the film's director, Damien Cockburn (Steve Coogan), in very hot water with producer Les Grossman (Tom Cruise), Cockburn takes the advice of grizzled Vietnam vet Four Leaf Tayback (Nick Nolte); in order to gain control of his performers, Cockburn drops the actors off in the jungle, planning to film the movie guerrilla-style with hidden cameras. When the group stumbles upon a heroin production camp, the actors are unaware that they are in very real danger.

Take one step back and f***k your face!!!! lol Tom was the best as that weird bald hairy man... the movie was great... Ben stiller as a full retard was awesome... "your only suppose to go half way retarted, Forest Gump half retard, you went all the way man..." Robert was amazing the movie was just non stop laughs all the way... best comedy i have seen in a while, and Ben stiller doesnt really have that many "good" comedy movies.... recomend to EVERYONE!!!!

This movie is a masterpiece of laughter. So Robert Downey Jr. plays a black man & Ben Stiller plays a Mentally Challenge character to the extreme. My answer to all the politically correctness is get a sense a Humor!!!!! If people like to know where I stand politically the answer is INDEPENDENT!!!!

This movie clearly belongs on anyone's "Top Ten" list of comedy movies and should be in everyone's library.

It must have been one of the best kept secrets in hollywood, but Tom Cruise is a funny guy. He made the whole movie for me and I have never been a fan of his work or that of Ben Stiller's. This was one of the funniest movies I have seen in a long time. I don't think I'll ever be able to hear that Flo-rida song again without bursting into peals of laughter.

If you need to escape for a couple hours and just have fun, this is the movie for you! It has its offensive moments, but if you aren't bothered by that, the acting and great dialogue will have you laughing your head off.
