Tropic Thunder

Postby eaglesfan » Thu Mar 13, 2008 2:33 pm

Looks like it could be one of the funniest movies ever.

Director: Ben Stiller
Screenwriter: Ben Stiller, Etan Cohen, Justin Theroux
Starring: Ben Stiller, Robert Downey Jr., Jay Baruchel, Jack Black
Genre: Comedy

Plot Summary: Ben Stiller says "Tropic Thunder" is a "a comedy about five actors who go on location and find themselves relying on their boot camp experiences when they get stuck in a real war-like situation." Black will play Jeff "Fats" Portnoy, an overweight gross-out comedian, who's forced to kick his drug addiction while filming on location in the jungle. Downey Jr. will play Kirk Lazarus, the greatest actor of his generation and a four-time Oscar winner. Baruchel will play Kevin Sandusky, an unknown actor on the set and Stiller plays Speedman.


Theres apparently some good cameos in this by both Tom Cruise, Tobey Maguire, and Matthew McConaghey.


BTW Robert Downey Jr. is a white guy playing a black guy in the fake movie. He's between Stiller and Jack Black.

I didn't see one funny thing in the trailer I watched... :-?

not to say it won't be funny... but I don't know how you can put it as a possible funniest movie ever off of the trailer you linked

Jack Black just isn't funny to me. If he's in it, it probably won't be.

The entire premise of the film sounds awesome. Group of troubled actors left in a war zone with the only training they have from a boot camp for the film. RDJ is a white 4 time oscar winner who decides to take on a black role to try and win another oscar. Plus Steve Coogan is in it as the director.

The makeup on Robert Downey Jr. is amazing. I would never have recognized him, and even knowing that's him it's hard to tell.

I thought the same thing Knapp.

Jack Black might just be one of the funniest actors walking the planet, well him, Jim Carrey and Steve Carrell.

Hehe, I've read that article by maddox before, pretty funny. I do like almost all of Ben Stiller's movies though. He looks pretty ripped up in this one! Been hittin' the gym evidently!
