    Very funny indeed!! Second watching points out this is a goddamn classic in the making. On par with Anchorman in terms of sheer surreal excellence and one liners. The film both works on its own merits and as a parody, which is rare. I just think it got overlooked for no good reason. 8 years 1 month ago

    It's sometimes surprising to me how good Ben Stiller, the writer-director, can be. Tropic Thunder is a great comedy about movie-making in the Hollywood system, with memorable, hilarious and quirky turns by various stars including Robert Downey Jr., Tom Cruise, Jack Black and Matthew McConaughey, spoofing mostly Apocalypse Now - a war film in trouble and over-budget - but hitting all sorts of targets along the way, sometimes lovingly, sometimes viciously, but always justly. Beautiful cinematography too; it plays at being the Oscar-baiting war film the characters are trying to make. 5 years 1 month ago
