So I saw Tropic Thunder last week


And it was outlandishly funny a la Zoolander.

Jack Black plays a recovering heroin addict/movie star

Ben Stiller plays an action hero who’s lost his luster

Robert Downey Jr plays an Australian white guy serious character actor who immerses himself in his part, which for this movie that he’s about to film is a 70’s tough-guy black guy

Tom Cruise plays the evil corporate studio head overseeing this new jungle warfare vietnamish movie.

So shit happens and laughs ensue as they try to figure out a) what happened b) what to do next and c) oh shit! what now?

I give it two and a half stars… It tries hard, and some of the jokes are , but the performance of Robert Downey Jr as the black guy really is something to see

Comes out August 15
RDJ’s performance was the funniest part of the trailer.

….and Tom Cruise is in this?

You’ll only recognize Tom Cruise by his voice, and he’s fucking hilarious.
I want to see it. I love when Hollywood is willing to make jokes at their expense.
It seems it’s been bumped up 2 days due to awesomeness…

There isn’t one single movie i’m looking forward to more this summer..

What do you mean “you people.”

What do YOU mean “you people?”

I went to a screener of it on thursday and I have to agree it was one of the funniest movies I have seen in a long time. Robert Downey Jr’s acting was awesome. I half expected the movie to be garbage but I am glad I was wrong.

Excellent news, been looking forward to this one for a while, entirely because of Downey Jr. You got me excited again!
Can’t wait, I like Jack black and even Ben Stiller sometimes, but I think RDJ is going to make the movie. The whole concept for his character makes me lol.
I think id sell my mother for one of the downey jr posters…would look great in my basement…years from now people will be trying to figure out what the hell is going on with the picture…ill probably pop in the dvd to clarify…only a few more weeks now..
I can kind of see the comparison, but the fact is that all the actors in this movie have no business even acting as their roles in the movie. In GQ the actors were at least competent enough to have some success within the show’s genre. Also, I think it’s funny that the director intentionally puts them in harm’s way.

Thanks for the info Hayden, can’t wait to catch this in a couple weeks.
yeah i’ve heard some of the comparisons to previous films, but i think some of them are a big misguided, plus this one has war involved, which just pwns all other generes of movies..

also none of them had these
“epic” thunder
