Tropic Thunder

Whent and saw Tropic Thunder with some co-workers tonight and I think..... Ok I am not and still am not a Ben Stiller fan, I just dont like his comedy. I think he wrote a great movie, but I just get fristrated seeing him on the screen to much. Tropic Thunder was awesome and very funny. Something that got me was they were really graphic in the beginning, but as the movie progressed, there were spots there could be gore, but nothing happened. Jack Black stole the show for me, he was funny and Downy Jr was a strong second. I honestly felt like Tom Cruise's character was better than Ben Stiller. There were some previews in the beginning that were great, the one with Downy and Tobey Mcquire was the best. Its a must see, expecialy for Jack Blacks character.

I saw this movie and I also liked it. I would also agree that Ben Stiller was not the reason I liked it. I loved Robert Downey and Jack Black was great too.
Something odd I noticed in the movie was that a lot of jokes seemed to go right over people's heads-although the audience seemed to enjoy it and laughed a lot- some of the subtler stuff seemed to pass them by.

When Jack threw the bat after he bit it, hit that dude square in the beans. almost pissed myself

I forgot to agree about the movie trailers also-they were one of the best parts, esp the one you mentioned.
