Let’s say it right now Ben Stiller should just direct every movie he stars and then everything would be good. In a nutshell what is this movie well it’s a parody of all those war films from the 80s and 90s that are semi-biographical. But also this is about the studio system of Hollywood and basically also a giant middle finger and fuck you do that same establishment. Tropic thunder works because it shows how actors give me phonies or how everyone into a genre or exactly just why people are in a need to be in a movie. And of course the phonies of the drugs and everything that makes Hollywood a superficial self-centered piece of shit it is.
Course the character Les Grossman steals the show as showing exactly what is wrong with Hollywood in the past 20 years this of course is a dark biting satire and it works so well this is probably one of the best movies of the 2000s decade which unto it self is a low point in Hollywood history.
On a scale of 1.0 5.9 it got a 5.4 out of 5.9.
