OK, so it's been almost a month since my initial post regarding Tropic Thunder and all the crap they were getting for the "controversial" things in the movie. Now that I'm not sick, we went and saw it this afternoon. I can say, without a doubt, it was one of the funniest movies I have seen in a long time. Some of the funniest movies are satires and this one doesn't disappoint. (I leave an exception to the satiracle movies like "Scary Movie" and the like, those ones are just plain stupid. Funny the first time I see them, but stupid every time afterwards).
I will advise that it is not a movie you want to see if you are averse to swearing. There is a lot of it. But, I do have to say (not being a traditional Tom Cruise fan) that there is one of the best F-Word rants in the movie, done by Tom Cruise. I thought I was going to pee my pants I was laughing so hard.
I will probably buy this movie on DVD when it comes out. It can reside next to my "Team America" DVD (the extremely raunchy "unrated" version) and it will get watched when ever I need a good laugh.
Robert Downey Jr is so freaking funny in this movie. When he isn't "in character", his eyes are just freaking weird (like an un-godly blue).
