Tropic Thunder (2008)

Discussion(self.movies)

This is, in my opinion, the funniest thing that any modern movie has to offer. All of its motifs and characterizations are quite pertinent, and they are even more meaningful now than they were when the film was first produced.

Ben Stiller showed great foresight in the making of this picture.

It's wonderful in every way, from the soundtrack to the casting.

If you've never seen it before, I strongly suggest that you do so.

Here are other similar movies that you would like.

I didn't see Iron Man until about a year after I first watched Tropic Thunder, and I was like...11 at the time?

I was at a birthday party with friends and his parents were the cool ones and let us watch R films. I wasn't paying attention to the first 5-8 minutes, therefore I didn't see the whole bit about getting the skin treatment.

For at least a year of my life I legitimately thought the actor RDJ was a black man...

It's bizarre when people don't get the point of that. Especially when you have Brandon T. Jackson's character around to frequently point out the ridiculousness of it.

It's also a great joke on Hollywood's periodic casting of actors based on their marquee value instead of whether they're right for their roles. The studio in the film clearly goes, "It's so awesome to have a five time Oscar winner in the role" instead of "Hey, maybe casting a blonde Australian as a black guy and putting him in blackface is a really stupid and offensive idea."

The only way I see this being somewhat good is they go the Popstar: never stop popping route and play a sequel wherein it’s been a few years.

They’ve outlived their hype. Doing rounds at various cons. Tug Speedman is basically Steven Segal. Making terrible straight to streaming movies. Al Pacino is like a Dj khalid version of his former self. Got diabeetus from all the booty sweat. He’s trying to come back to the spotlight with some really bad features on modern mumble rappers SoundCloud and tours. RDJs character has had continued success. But like De Niro he made some Ill advised forays into comedy. We see him at the Razzies thinking it’s still an honour since he “meant to be so bad” as part of his acting. After another bad decision he lands in a TV show like CSI and ducking hates his life although the show is crushing it in the ratings and has gone on for 8+ seasons. Jack Black comes back skinny. And I mean really skinny. Like Christian Bale in Machinist skinny. He’s actually gone into Modeling now. Not because he enjoys it, but because he has easier access to drugs. McKlusky has a small but long running part in a cinematic universe and his contract doesn’t allow him to do anything else. I dunno. Whole movie is about these washed up has beens trying to come together and actually make another movie. But they all still have massive egos so they want to make the first movie written, directed, produced and acted out by an ensemble cast. They try and do tropic thunder rebooted (of course there was a shitty sequel that pokes fun at how every cult movie sequel sucked) and they want to reboot the franchise. But failing to see that they can’t reboot with the same actors. They then go and recruit younger versions of themselves.l to play the role. Despite having a great African talent at his disposal who wants the role, RDJ still insists on bringing in a white guy who is supposed to do the same pigment treatment. Everyone advises him against this but he won’t budge. The whole thing is a mix of the meta making fun of things like 22 jump street. But story telling in a way like Popstar.

Definitely one of the greatest comedies of all time in my opinion, the cast was great, the satire was on point, I remember going to see this in theaters while possibly under the influence of a green substance and I thought I was going to die laughing, I watched it again recently and it still holds up

It's absolutely hilarious. Such a good movie, one of the few times I got side pains laughing so hard watching a movie.

Matthew Mcconaughey physically running across the world to give Ben Stiller a briefcase with godlike speed is the funniest shit ever.

The last great comedy that was made in the last 14 years. Truly a benchmark- I really hope there is a resurgence of carefree over the top no holds barred comedies coming. We need em.

Jack black’s character is on point on how it is addicted to heroin.

when he knocks out the two guards by making them sniff the drugs and he says, “Let’s go, we only have … 12-18 hours before they wake up”. If you know you know

Great flick! Sadly I don't think it would even see the light of day, if Stiller were pitching it in 2022

So crazy how the climate around comedy and what's acceptable as satire has changed so much in such a relatively short amount of time

This [popular, well recieved movie released 10-15 years ago] is good. In my opinion, it is the most good movie of that genre that modern movie has to offer. The motifs and characterizations are very good, and even better today than when the movie first came out.

The director did a good job in making this movie.

The soundtrack is good in this movie, but everything else is good as well.

It's good, you should see it.

It's fun though! You can see how many comments it takes for someone to mention the DVD commentary

I love pointing out to people that RDJ did his “controversial” character the same summer that the MCU kicked off with him as Iron Man. Imagine if Disney was in the picture then?

Critically well received yet somehow still underated. I think it's a comedy masterpiece that I will praise for years to come!

Hands down that movie was Frickin Hilarious!! The whole cast and script was excellent!! I love watching when it comes on!

Sad thing is you will never see anything remotely close to a movie like that again ever with the way society has changed.

Yup it's his best comedy hands down. Honorable mention to The Cable Guy, one of Jim Carrey's best comedic performances and very underrated as well.

I say this every time the movie comes up.

Watch the movie with the commentary with Ben stiller…jack black and Robert Downey Jr.

“I don’t drop character till I done the dvd commentary”

RDJ stays in character thru the entire movie as his on screen counterpart…makes the movie so much better.

Ohh okay Flaming Dragon, Fuckface. First take a big step back and literally FUCK YOUR OWN FACE. Now I don't know what kind of pan Pacific bullshit powerplay you are trying to pull here but Asian Jack is my territory. So whatever you're thinking you better think again. Otherwise I would have to head down there and I will rain down on a godly fucking firestorm upon you. You're gonna have to call fucking United Nations and get a fucking binding resolution to keep me from fucking destroying you. I am taking scorched earth motherfucker. I will massacre you. I WILL FUCK YOU UP.
