After two long weeks, I finally had an opportunity to pop in the DVD from Netflix, and watch Tropic Thunder, starring Ben Stiller, Robert Downey Jr, Jack Black, etc. So many people have mentioned this as a hilarious, and the trailers have made the movie look very promising. My friend Raj came over to visit, and had a nice guys night. We had pizza & beers, played some Madden ’07, and then watched Tropic Thunder.
I have to confess that I wasn’t all the impressed with the movie. It had its occasional moments, but I didn’t think it was all that funny. Being that this movie was about so-so actors not initially realizing they were not in an actual movie reminded me of the old 80’s comedy classic Three Amigos!, but I thought Three Amigos! was more consistently funny. Tropic Thunder was only okay in my book.
