Tropic Thunder

Last night the team and I all went to the new movie Tropic Thunder. Honestly, this movie was quite a bit better than I thought it was going to be. I had heard very mixed reviews (more bad than good) so I was very tentative on even going. However, a number of people in the office convinced me to go – and I am glad that I did.

The movie is ½ spoof (think ‘Scary Movie’) and ½ comedy/action flick starting Ben Stiller among others. The movie was very funny in some spots but a little cheesy in others. Overall, the funny spots win due mostly in part to some very crude high school level humor. I could see 17 year old Adam LOVING this movie and not even questioning going to it again. (On a side note, Ben Stiller was RIPPED in this movie. I need to know what he did to get that big. After all, if he can get that big, then there is hope for even me.)

Either way, if you don’t want to have to think and you want to see some stuff explode, then Tropic Thunder is probably worth your time. Now, whether or not any more is worth the $45 that it costs to go to the theatre is a different post all together.
