Review
A wildly diverse mixture of deluded stars are joined together for the ultimate (read horribly over budget) Vietnam war movie ever. From Kirk Lazarus, an obsessive five time Oscar winner who gets himself surgically darkened to play the African American character to Tugg Speedman, a wilting action superstar tormented by his lack of ability, all are ill-equipped to deal with the everyday world, let alone the drug lord infested jungle the director unwittingly drops them in when he decides on some back to basics ‘realism'. Tropic Thunder is a work of flawed genius from director/star Ben Stiller, with some achingly funny, knowingly un-politically correct dialogue, great performances, and a cameo from Tom Cruise that's an utter, utter joy.
