Tropic Thunder is not uniformly funny…but it’s pretty damn funny. I don’t think the Tom Cruise parts are all that, but Robert Downey, Jr is great. It’s the Citizen Kane of fake war movies.
If you’ve seen the movie…what were your previews like? Not the faux previews that are clearly part of the movie, but the actual previews? Ours were so long and so bad and so bizarre and so loud that I wondered if we would be the first people to walk of a movie because the previews were so bad. And then the movie starts, and it all makes sense, and it’s perfect.
