Tropic Thunder

Tropic Thunder
Director: Ben Stiller
Starring: Ben Stiller, Jack Black, Robert Downey Jr., Nick Nolte

Actors get sent into the jungle to train for a film and end up facing real dangers they think are part of the acting job.

This movie is totally worth it for Robert Downey Jr.'s portrayal of an Australian actor playing an African American. There are "previews" at the beginning of the film of each of the actors' work and Robert Downey Jr.'s is this forbidden monk love thing with Tobey Maguire that had Kevin and I in hysterics. I think just about everything we laughed at in this film had to do with Robert Downey Jr. He's fabulously funny. We also loved the bridge thing at the end and found the film as a whole to be funny, though I think we were the only people in the theatre who were laughing and my mom didn't even watch the whole movie because she couldn't get into it. So see it for Robert Downey Jr.

First seen: in theatre, August 2008
