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.

Rude, witty, and ballsy, TROPIC THUNDER is a great time at the movies. It's hard finding worth-while large budget comedies these days, but DIRECTOR Ben Stiller, supported by a strong cast and a great premise, has proved himself to be the right man for the task.

Tropic Thunder was hilarious. I regret putting it off for so long, thinking that I wouldn't like it, sry to everybody who I ever doubted about this movie. I was actually really surprised at how beautifully shot it was too, I wouldn't have expected that from this kind of movie. Gorgeous setting. The performances were all fantastic too, especially RDJ's. Probably one of my favourite comedy movies of all time now.
