Tropic Thunder DVD Review

Now, let’s go get those Vietcongs!

– Tugg Speedman

Tropic Thunder is the story of a group of actors making a Vietnam War movie.  The story is told in a mocumentry style, think This Is Spinal Tap.  The movie stars Robert Downey Jr., Ben Stiller, Jack Black, and has a  cameo role played by Tom Cruise.

The movie is the story of the filming of the memoir of a Vietnam veteran, John “Four Leaf” Tayback.  When the filming runs into some trouble, the director decides to film the movie guerrilla style. The director turns the actors lose in the jungle, where they encounter a heroine gang.

The movie plays on a number of Hollywood stereotypes. 

  • Tugg Speedman (Stiller) – action-movie star who thinks he is a better actor than he is.
  • Jeff Portnoy (Black) – comedy actor famous for his fart movies, who is addicted to heroine.
  • Kirk Lazarus (Downey) – multiple Academy Award winner, who undergoes surgery to portrays a black sergeant.

The film received an 83% from Rotten Tomatoes, and grossed $185,000,000. The DVD lives up to the movie.  Booty Sweat , 8.4 Ounce Can (Pack of 24)

Tropic Thunder offers three DVD versions: single disc, 2-disc director’s cut, and director’s curt Blu-Rey.  The best bet is the director’s cut.

While watching Tropic Thunder, there is nothing better than enjoying a cool can of Booty Sweat.
