The film maintains a frenetic pace for the first half but the jokes soon run dry as it moves to a rescue mission. I understand the films success but it isn't a classic or remembered as fondly as many other comedies.

The film is well cast with some hilarious movie promos at the beginning, poking fun at the mega budgeted films of Hollywood.

I liked the film and would recommend it but it's not a great film, not a cult film like Zoolander. Stiller should make more films as director as he clearly has an eye for the craft.

Brendan N Super Reviewer. Jul 12, A pretty bad movie. Not very funny either. Peter B Super Reviewer. Feb 21, It took me a while to get around to seeing this.

I like the idea of it and the fact it isn't afraid to poke fun and parody the big Hollywood names. Not as funny as it could have been but it is still enjoyable.

Comedian Jeff Portnoy is best known for his leading roles in sophomoric comedies, and may be less well known for his rampant drug use.

On location in southeast Vietnam, they are the stars of "Tropic Thunder", based on Vietnam war veteran 'Four Leaf' Tayback's memoirs of his rescue during the war, that rescue which was considered a near suicide mission for the assigned army force and resulted in him losing both hands.

For his role, Caucasian Australian Lazarus even went through a controversial surgical skin dying procedure so that he could convincingly play a black man.

Tropic Thunder exaggerates on its eccentricity, but it's always dealt with a sense of satirical truth. That in itself develops the film beyond any throwaway comedy that is trying too hard to find that punchline.

Kelechi Ehenulo. A cast to die for, and one of the truly hysterical and irreverent films of the past few decades.

Tom Meek. The real lasting appeal of Tropic Thunder won't be the lavish production, but the rich send-up of acting as a profession, Hollywood as a culture, and war films as an inspiration to us civilians.

View All Critic Reviews Oct 06, Interesting film that mixes genres successfully and showcases Stiller as a genuine director not just for comedy.

The film maintains a frenetic pace for the first half but the jokes soon run dry as it moves to a rescue mission. I understand the films success but it isn't a classic or remembered as fondly as many other comedies.
