  • This movie has many hilarious moments, one of the best being when Tom Cruise dances to a Flo Rida song

      Tropic Thunder is a movie about the making of the worst movie ever made. This movie is set in southeast Asia where Tugg Speedman (Ben Stiller), a former big budget American movie star, is filming his latest movie, a film based on a book written by a POW survivor of the Vietman War. Tugg is joined by many actors, such as Kirk Lazarus (played brilliantly by Robert Downey Jr.

      ), Jeff

      Portnoy (Jack Black) with cameos by Tom Cruise who plays film producer Les Grossman, and Matthew McConaughey as Tugg’s agent, and best friend, Rick Peck. In an effort to get more raw and gritty footage for the film, the director decides to drop the main actors into the middle of the jungle and film them guerilla-style as they find their way back to civilization.

      This plan backfires when Stiller is ...

      • taken hostage by ruthless drug dealers. It takes him awhile to figure out that he is no longer filming the movie.

        The other actors in the jungle clue in almost immediately and watch from behind bushes as Stiller is tortured. Eventually the actors come up with a plan to rescue Tugg.

        This movie has many hilarious moments, one of the best being when Tom Cruise dances to a Flo Rida

        song. Another funny scene involves Ben Stiller and a panda head.

        Matthew McConaughey also offers up some good laughs with his demand that his friend, and client, Tugg Speedman, receive a TiVo he was promised in his contract. Definitely rent this movie.

        We have seen it three times and we still think it’s funny. Robert Downey Jr.

        gives one of the funniest performances we have seen in a very long time. Great movie!
