I am lying. I don’t think anything I am about to write could be considered a spoiler, but if it is, whoops.
I saw a preview for this months ago, thought it might be funny. I knew Ben Stiller was in it, I am an unenthusiastic fan of his. He’s really funny, not the best. I had no clue that Robert Downey Jr. was in it, and I swear if they had not shown him prior to his “transformation” I would not have known it was him. Also, Tom Cruise. I leaned over halfway through the film and said, “Is that Tom Cruise?” I was assured the chunky man with the hairy chest was Jerry Maguire in disguise.
Back to RDJ: You were my favorite part in this movie. You are welcome.
Just remember…never go full retard.
That is all.
Wait, no, I’m wrong, that is not all. Also…
Everyone is all goo-goo eyed over Heath Ledger, but RDJ deserves a Best Actor nomination for this movie. I am completey serious.
“I don’t read the script. The script reads me.”
“I’m a lead farmer mother fucker!”
Haha… Robert Downey Jr. definitely stole the show from notable funny men Ben Stiller and Jack Black. But going as far as saying he deserves a best actor nomination… that’s not going to happen. It’s a solid performance and probably the best of any comedy this year, but it’s still not an Academy Award performance. Oh yeah, Tom Cruise as the F-bombing studio executive was hysterical.
tg- I can see a nomination, that would be great.
“I don’t drop character until I record the DVD Commentary.”
Also, did not realize it was Cruise until the credits rolled. I was in awe.
Hey, kb, I’ve written a Tropic Thunder Review too! Just clicky the namey and see it. 🙂
I might rent it when it comes out on DVD. Or borrow it, that’d be even better.
I saw the trailer for this before the Dark Knight, looks pretty good.
I saw Stepbrothers last night.
What can I say about Stepbrothers…umm..Like all the rest of his movies, this too is a Will Ferrell movie.
Thats the best I have.
But was it good? Cause I’ve been peeing my pants over the trailer since it was released…
Is it worth a trip to the theatre, or wait to rent it?
It was. It was good. It was not overall great, but there were parts and certain people that were great. I am being vague so you should just go see it.
I was going to go see the Star Wars film next, now I am conflicted… maybe I should see tropic thunder instead, I have heard mixed reviews about the Star Wars film.
I’ve heard this is one incredibly bad movie. Maybe it’s just me, but Stiller’s humor is about as old as my right toenail and equally as smelly.
It’s really not incredibly bad. It’s as good as it can be, based on the concept. Or so I think.
I was on the fence about this, but I’m starting to lean toward putting it in the “wait for HBO” category. I did kinda want to see it, because I like Robert Downey Jr. and I missed Iron Man, but I’m really less than fond of Ben Stiller. I’ve read a bunch of reviews now including Galileo’s, and I think I’d probably enjoy seeing Pineapple Express again more. It does sound pretty good though.
