Rude, witty, and ballsy
Starting with the best fake-trailers this side of Grindhouse, TROPIC THUNDER develops into the most uniquely wacky blend of satire/action/ and gross-out I've ever seen. At first it appears to be a straight-up spoof on popular war films, then it becomes a film within a film, then an attack on Hollywood and the film industry in general. Also present are some rather shocking (and hilarious) sight gags (exploding film-crew members, the brutal slaughter of an endangered species) that managed to catch everyone off guard (yet not offend them).
The main reason TROPIC THUNDER works so well though is it's stellar ensemble cast. You have the likes of Ben Stiller, Robert Downey Jr, Jack Black, Jay Baruchel, Steve Coogan, and Nick Nolte all turning in terrific comedic performances that they obviously had fun with. Tom Cruise gives the extended cameo of the year as a studio executive, while Tobey Maguire and a slew of other actors make notable appearances. Ultimately it is Downey Jr. who steals almost every scene as the platoon's very white, African-American squad leader.
Rude, witty, and ballsy, TROPIC THUNDER is a great time at the movies. It's hard finding worth-while large budget comedies these days, but DIRECTOR Ben Stiller, supported by a strong cast and a great premise, has proved himself to be the right man for the task.Read full review

So F'n hilarious you'll be quoting so many different lines from the characters! Robert Downey Jr is epic as is Tom Cruise! I held off watching this until now (Feb 2011) and totally regret it! Loved it so much I had to buy it! I don't buy many movies so to me this is an instant classic you'll be revisiting again and again and laughing just as hard! "Before the war broked out I was a saucier in San Antone" and "There were times when I felt like....really retarded...brushed my teeth retarded, rode the bus retarded.." Those lines alone brighten my day and make me laugh even when I'm having the worst of days. 5 stars and I am crossing my fingers for a sequal!

A fun adventure
The Directors Cut didn't add or improve the film, but that is not to say that the film wasn't good to begin with. I enjoyed this film a lot and I especially liked the way Tom Cruise dominated in all of his scenes. Stiller once again plays the bumbling idiot that we all love, bringing back memories of zoolander (another fun film by stiller). Jack Black has an unfortunate role that doesnt have a chance to shine or really be memorable. Downey does an excellent job however and nearly steals the show.
For anyone who is looking for a good time, this is the film for you. If you already have this film or are only thinking about buying it for the directors cut, then I would stick with what you have. There is nothing worthy added in to the directors cut of the film, but added clarity of blu ray may be enough to entice others. The alternate ending though leaves you thanking that they went the route that ended up in the theatrical cut as well.Read full review
