so I saw Tropic Thunder and it was really great, I found myself jumping side to side in my chair laughing,, let me give you a short rundown on some of the characters,,

Ben Stiller,, an all most has-been famous over acting actor yearning for that award of a life time, this over acting actor get's too deep into his character for his own good, he over acts to the point he looses his self-identity in his character and become one with the jungle, but he was lost only long enough to find out he really didn't fit in the jungle as he though he did,,

Nick Nolte,, with a deep raspy voice Nolte has a great character, he fits his character perfectly, this "hand-less" Vietnam Vet has been there, it's his story as he wrote it and it must be told to the world, he has a deeply hidden secret that spins the plot for about 30 seconds late in the story,, yes, he is hand-less,,

Robert Downy Jr,, the successful Australian over achieving actor, a white man that surgically pignates his skin to become a black man for the movie, a black man that looks and acts black but is not black, he too gets so deep in his character he forgets while out of character he is white yet his skin is black, this over achiever helps Stiller's character achieve his life's yearning,, (spell check on pignates),,

Jack Black,, this seemingly all-together actor thinks more of his acting than it really is, another over acting actor, he too has a secret that is revealed mid movie, half naked and deep in the jungle he looses it badly yet he reaches deep inside himself and kicks his secret just in time to help save the day,,

Brandon T Jackson,, the black man that does not die first, the only one that keeps a cool head, he helps hold the team together, with his believable character~ possibly the only real acting in the movie, a very good actor !!

Tom Cruse,, very~ quite possibly Tom's best work !!! Tom, the bald hard headed prick Producer, a Rob Reiner look-a-like that brings the over budget movie to a true block buster,, look close you will never know it's Tom..

a must see !!

Saw it about a month ago, brilliant. "I'm a lead farmer", I'm a dude playing a dude played by another dude. It is the Blazing Saddles of war films.

It's one that people seem to really like or really hate. I thought it was the worst movie ever made and I just wish I could get the time back I wasted watching it.

I saw it the night before last. Jack Black is hiliarious, but I thought that Tom Cruise looked EXACTLY like a Jaime Kennedy character.

I watched it on a 14 hour flight to Sydney. Laughed my butt off. Then again, on a long flight I don't exactly want humor that forces me to think. Jack Black and Robert Downey Jr were fantastic

Some parts were funny ,but I found some of the scenes too over the top gory for a comedy.

yes it was a silly movie, but unlike many other silly movies the acting in this movie was good,,

as for Tom Cruise I have never thought of him as a good actor, in fact I thought of him as a rather bad actor that was in rather bad moives..

Saw it last night too, good movie. I was actually surprised Tom Cruise took that role, I've never seen him in a comedy before. I thought his character was well done.

I guess I'm one of those who didn't think it was all that good. And just so you know, Blazing Saddles and Airplane are my two favorite comedies of all time so it's not like I don't have a sense of silly, over the top humor either. Just for me, this movie didn't have it.

It had funny moments and Tom Cruise did an excellent job in it, but for me at least, the language was just over the top vulgar and every other word was a f-bomb. So many it became tiring for me.

I didn't like it either, it was ok but overall I didn't think it was that funny. Maybe I was in "off" mood when I watched it.

I started watching that movie, got 15 minutes into it and turned it off. The next day I sat down again with my wife and gave it another shot; this time she turned it off. Def. not my cup of beer.

F Bombs?

The Stranger: There's just one thing, Dude.
The Dude: And what's that?
The Stranger: Do you have to use so many cuss words?
The Dude: What the f**k you talking about?
The Stranger: Okay, Dude. Have it your way.

Obviously from the Dude!! But fitting.

Very funny movie you have to like stupid humor though and I love stupid humor. i bought this movie. Oh and you don't have to look close at tom cruise's character it is so obvious, I mean holy crap that is tom cruis on the scene where he gets that guy to punch the producer in the face. So obvious.
