About the Movie
Ben Stiller, Jack Black and Robert Downey Jr. lead an ensemble cast in "Tropic Thunder," an action comedy about a group of self-absorbed actors who set out to make the most expensive war film. After ballooning costs force the studio to cancel the movie, the frustrated director refuses to stop shooting, leading his cast into the jungles of Southeast Asia, where they encounter real bad guys.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Though some of the caricatures wear thin, some of the acting rises to a high level.
Rotten: After the dazzle of the early scenes, something droops and flags in Tropic Thunder.
Fresh: For years now, onscreen and off, [Tom] Cruise has seemed like a bottle of barely contained crazy; now we know what happens when the cork comes out.
Fresh: Some of it is very funny, some of it is too broad.
Best movie of 2008 is right here
Best comedy of 2008, hands down!
So we had a lot of great comedies this year - Role Models, Pineapple Express, Step Brothers, Sarah Marshall and more... but overall this is the funniest movie of the year. The acting and the performances are hysterical, and the movie is fantastically done with some unexpected cameos from famous celebrities. The jokes are hilarious, so are the characters, and the movie starts with laughs and ends with laughs. The trio (Stiller, Black and Downey Jr.) are just as good as their acting in other movies, and it's definitely worth the buy. But I have a question - when CAN you buy? Why is there the only rent sign? 5/5.
This the funniest movie I have ever seen! Every actor addd thier own style to it. Two thumps way up.
