He's cracking me up. "Now back up and fuck your own face!"
Tom Cruise was the funniest part of the movie

I still can't believe that he agreed to play that role.
Oh you're a great American

This nation owes you a huge debt. Now shut the fuck up and let me do my job!
For my money

it was the best (well-known) movie of 2008.
Watched an hour of it

Couldn't get into it. Didn't like it. I don't know why exactly.

Great movie.
One of my favorite movies no one knows about  
PatersonPlank : 9/8/2017 10:55 pm : link
I watch it on cable whenever I see it. I love Tome Cruise dancing to the Flo Rida "Apple Bottom Jeans" song. Plus I think the acting of Jack Black and Robert Downey is a riot.
The best part of the movie is totally lost if you're watching

these days.

If you went and saw it at the theater, they wrapped the fake trailers into the real previews and it was hilarious. Set the whole tone of the movie.

Great flick.


Fantastic and underrated movie.

I do not think they'd get away with making it today; there would be so many think-pieces about how "problematic" it is.
Also loved the Apocalypse Now parody

That was hysterical. They had like a brokeback clergy movie. The booty sweat commercial was amazing.

it isn't one of the most under this radar comedy s

Tropic Thunder was a huge hit when it came out

Tropic Thunder is under the radar classic movie.
it is getting more and more respect as a truly great movie

probably should have been nominated for Best Picture that year
along with The Dark Knight

2009 nominees for Best Picture
Slumdog Millionaire
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Frost/Nixon
Milk
The Reader

Tropic Thunder is definitely better than most of these nominees

Robert Downey Jr got a best supporting actor nomination for his role
which is extremely rare for a comedy like this
He lost to Heath Ledger as The Joker
They tried to conceal Cruise's involvement...

...until after it premiered so that audiences would be surprised it was him when the end credits rolled, but someone from the media got wind of it and let the cat out of the bag. He is the best part of the movie...

Is Ben Stiller's best work to date
We trained actors mother fuckers!

Tom Holland said that he recited that line to RDJ when they were filming Spider-Man and the director had notes for them. RDJ cracked up.
This was around the time

Pineapple Express came out?

Not to say these movies were the best in the world (Superbad, Tropic Thunder, Role Models, Hangover, Knocked Up, 40 year old Virgin) around this time but they were certainly creative
a lot of those
