Terrific action/comedy romp!

"I'm just a little boy who plays with his penis when he's nervous."

Tropic Thunder was Ben Stiller's most ambitious project yet. The actor/director/writer's career abruptly plummeted after starring in a number of disappointing films such as the tepid Night at the Museum and the lacklustre recent remake of The Heartbreak Kid. The last time Stiller accepted the obligations as a direct... read more

The hype for this film was crazy, and I was hearing nothing but good things about it. For the first month it was in theaters, then out of it, I was dying to watch it, but never got around to it. Thank god I gave it a good viewing last night from the nifty "Netflix" service, because It was just as good as advertised, and also much different than I was expecting.

The story is very uni... read more
View all Tropic Thunder reviews
Ben Stiller, Jack Black and Robert Downey Jr. lead an ensemble cast in “Tropic Thunder,’ an action comedy about a group of self-absorbed actors who set out to make the most expensive war film. After ballooning costs force the studio to cancel the movie, the frustrated director refuses to stop shooting, leading his cast into the jungles of Southeast Asia, where they encounter real bad guys.

Tropic Thunder

“You ever looked at Heart of Darkness, not the novel but the documentary about making Apocalypse Now, and think but what if it were a comedy? If the answer is no, then you’re clearly most people and not Ben Stiller. Props to Ben Stiller for deciding to take the piss out of the entire construct of prestige projects, auteurs, and ego-centric actors with Tropic Thunder.   It’s an entertaining 107 minutes, one that hurls a string of jokes at you, most of which land, and then rolls off into the credits happy to have entertained. It has no grander ambitions and thank god for that. It’s fun to watch Ben Stiller play a movie star trying to go serious, and perhaps a bit uncomfortably reflective at points given how he’s forsaken these types of films in favor of smaller scale character dram” read more
