NOW IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER!!
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, but 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 but, 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.
A rollicking romp-ride that parodies a number of war classics over the course of its runtime and also offers an inside look at Hollywood productions in its own amusing manner, Tropic Thunder is a fabulous blend of brilliant direction, skilful writing & charismatic performances that easily ranks amongst the finest comedies of the past decade.
The story of Tropic Thunder follows a group of actors filming a Vietnam-war memoir on site where the production has already gone over budget & is behind schedule. Things are set in motion when the rookie director, who's unable to control his actors, decides to drop them in the middle of the jungle where the cast continues its act thinking that they are still shooting a movie.…
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?
Best comic performance ever by Robert Downey Jr. That alone makes this film worth the watch!
Equal parts satire and parody with a fantastic cast and a script that never hesitates to push the limits, never gets old. Also, Tom Cruise.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
There is something about the way they fling a five-year-old from a bridge that makes it majestic.
Enjoyment Extracted: 9/10

"I don't read the script. The script reads me."
Ben Stiller's satirical war comedy Tropic Thunder is a gleefully profane and subversive send-up of Hollywood war films that ends up a much stronger film than it has any right to be.
The film follows a film studio's misguided attempt to develop a war film based on a memoir by Vietnam War veteran "Four Leaf" Tayback, played by Nick Nolte. Tensions flare among members of the film's star-studded cast and rookie director Damien Cockburn, played by Steve Coogan, leading the film to fall dangerously behind schedule. Under Four Leaf's advice, Cockburn decides to complete the rest of the production "guerilla-style" by dropping his cast in the middle of a forest rigged…
Tropic Thunder is one of my favorite movies. It's got a great cast that works well together to bring forth a great comedy. What may seem like just another silly Ben Stiller flick is actually a very smart movie once you look into all the layers and commentary present within the jokes.
I absolutely love this film. I can, and have, literally watch this film every single day, and still laugh everytime.
Who left the fridge open?
Think I feel comfortable with this again? The best. Chronological. Constantly in flux.
