The movie they think they're making... isn't a movie anymore.
Vietnam veteran "Four Leaf" Tayback's memoir, Tropic Thunder, is being made into a film. Director Damien Cockburn can’t control the cast of prima donnas. Behind schedule and over budget, Cockburn is ordered by a studio executive to get filming back on track, or risk its cancellation. On Tayback's advice, Cockburn drops the actors into the middle of the jungle to film the remaining scenes. Unbeknownst to the actors and production, the group have been dropped in the middle of the Golden Triangle, the home of heroin-producing gangs.
Well la-di-fuckin da. What a cracker jack!!
It is disrespectful. It mocks itself and so many other films endlessly at every twist and turn.
But who cares when it is so much rip roaring fun.
We got Iron Man playing the dude playing the dude disguised as another dude.
Tom Cruise playing a bald, hot-headed, booty shaking man throwing a shit load of profanity at people.
Jack Black making fart jokes and craving for his dope.
Steve Coogan playing a character called Cockburn.
Ben Stiller trying to cry.
Is this not enough awesomeness to love a movie?
Oh Tropic Thunder, you ma ma ma ma made me go fucking ha ha ha that I had rain from my eyes from laughing.
I'll let Les Grossman sum it up: If you don't like this movie, you can take a big step back and literally FUCK YOUR OWN FACE.
Kirk Lazarus: I know who I am. I'm the dude playin' the dude, disguised as another dude!
After watching a dark movie like Apocalypse Now, it was really awesome to watch Tropic Thunder.
I was laughing till the end. And ROBERT DOWNEY JR. Fuck Yeah. Forget Tony Stark, Iron Man and Sherlock Holmes. Remember him for Kirk Lazarus. He is just fucking awesome and I can even say Legendary.
This movie is like a Spoof within a Spoof within a Spoof.
Kirk Lazarus: Man, I don't drop character 'till I done the DVD commentary.
I am just going to quote Kirk Fucking Lazarus in the review.
Kirk Lazarus: Everybody knows you never go full retard.
Tugg Speedman: What do you…

My two favourite comedy performances by non-comedy actors bookend this film. It starts with a bleach-blond Robert Downey Jr. in a hysterical fake trailer for gay monk erotica Satan's Alley and ends with a fat Tom Cruise with glasses, sweat patches and bling dancing to Ludacris' Get Back over the credits.
Can you see why I completely adore this film?
When a film opens with some of the best spoof movie trailers in existence, you know it's going to be good. Then Tom Cruise turns up as a movie producer who rivals Malcolm Tucker in the creative swearing department. Actually, that'd be a great spin-off movie:
"One's a foul-mouthed American movie producer. The other's an equally foul-mouthed Scottish political adviser. Together, they fight crime."
I am a goddamn genius.
I do really like this film.
A bunch of actors filming a war movie end up in a war zone with calamitous circumstances.
With this you have Jack Black drugged up, Tom Cruise as fat as fuck and Downey JR doing his best for racial equality.
Never go full retard.
This is the sort of meta-film a 15-year-old that just saw his first arthouse flick would make as some grandiloquent act of deconstruction.
Great action comedy. Plays with enough tropes relating to actors, directors, and filmmaking to be fun enough for anyone who's a fan of watching movies.
Between this movie and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Ben Stiller needs to be involved with directing more often and less involved with movies like "Night in the Museum: Part Nobody Cares".
Also would be fun to see someone pull a "Tropic Thunder" for another movie genre. I love these meta movies a lot.
My review -- this film project is now on DVD and it does have a large profit margin of roughly $96 million. The plot in a nutshell is as follows, the viewers quickly see these advertisements for some up-and-coming film projects and then we are transported onto the film set of Tropic Thunder -- based on a book which we will see in the film.] But the only problem is most of the performers in this film either cannot act or dislike the other performers, so the director is given one a last opportunity to make this film happen and desperate times call for desperate measures, he takes his performers into a real-life situation and unknown to him he accidentally…
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Good example of an average movie for me, but for strange reasons: this is sort of volatile, fluctuating between actual laughs and huge lulls, which drag the rest of it down to an average to below-average comedy.
This was pretty boring. Some laughs. Not much though.
A story of dudes playing other dudes, playing other dudes in in a movie within a movie, within a movie. Throw plenty of bitch slappin' at Hollywood, it's star system and its vain actors and you got the makings of a pretty darn good movie. Everyone is great but special kudos to Robert Downey Jr. and Tom Cruise for some stand out performances.
Wow, just hilarious. It may have lost its edge in the final reel, but there is so much to like here. Every character has a reason to be funny, most notably Tom Cruise in disguise is fantastic and proves he can hold his own in one of these comedies. It’s a great effort from Stiller – so good to see him in front and behind the camera again (I hope Zoolander 2 happens). All of the industry jokes are spot on, but what a stunning cast Stiller put together. A great action comedy.
