    Default Tropic Thunder Review *spoilers*

    Oh my God this movie is amazing. I can't even write down... the words... you know?

    It managed to avoid everything big-budget comedies always do and fail miserably. It had a cast of well-known actors, but nobody really dominated the screen. That's the biggest pitfall, especially since the director is playing a lead role. Stiller managed to control his acting boner and actually spent little time on screen. Downey probably had the most on-screen time, but he did a fantastic job. Not just with the "Hey look at me I'm pretending to be black lol" schtick, which was done well anyway, but his character as a whole was awesome. I think his best line was when he grabbed a map from Stiller and said "Fuck you." It was just delivered and timed awesomely. That's the substance of comedy, not fucking pop-culture references and horrible horrible parodies of it.

    Secondly, it didn't have any stupid gags like you see these days, i.e. the afore-mentioned XXXX Movie as of late. But, they actually made a funny fart joke.

    Tom Cruise, although a giant douche, is great in this movie because he plays a giant douche. Seriously, I don't think you'll be able to say "Tom Cruise sucked in Tropic Thunder" with a clean conscience.

    Yeah, I don't know what else to say. Just go see it. In theaters is the best. The beginning is awesome ala ATHFCMFfT

    It wasn't as funny as I thought, but was probably the best satire I've seen in the past 4 years.

    The movie would have been funny without Cruise.
    With Cruise it was flat out amazing.

    The "Full Retard" lecture by Downy Jr. was by far the funniest part for me.
