Tropic Thunder Rated R

Tropic Thunder R PT107M


In the action-comedy 'Tropic Thunder,' Ben Stiller plays pampered action superstar Tugg Speedman, who is cast in the biggest, most expensive war movie ever produced. He sets out to Southeast Asia with a 'Who's Who' of celebrity co-stars. They include Kirk Lazarus (Robert Downey Jr.), an intense, three-time Oscar-winning actor; Jeff Portnoy (Jack Black), star of the popular gross-out comedy franchise 'The Fatties'; multi-platinum hip-hop-star-turned-entrepreneur-turned-actor Alpa Chino (Brandon T. Jackson); and first-timer Kevin Sandusky (Jay Baruchel). Soon after the production begins the actors are thrown into a real-life situation and are forced to become the fighting unit they're portraying, in order to find a way out of the jungle in one piece.

    Tropic Thunder as a whole is a ridiculous movie.

  • @AmandaAustin15

    Tropic Thunder is honestly the funniest movie

  • @gascan27

    The fake trailers at the beginning of Tropic thunder are the best thing in the movie.

    I'm not even done with this movie yet, but Tropic Thunder twice as funny as The Nice Guys. You laugh maybe every 10 mins versus TT's every 2
