“Written and directed by Ben Stiller and featuring a host of stars including Robert Downey Jr, Jack Black, Nick Nolte and Steve Coogan Tropic Thunder is an action packed comedy not to be missed!
A group of well-known successful actors are cast in the biggest, most expensive war movie ever produced! They include Tugg Speedman (Ben Stiller) - a pampered action superstar, Kirk Lazarus (Robert Downey Jr.), an intense, three-time Oscar-winning actor; Jeff Portnoy (Jack Black), star of the popular gross-out comedy franchise "The Fatties"; multi-platinum hiphop-star-turned-entrepreneur-turned-actor Alpa Chino (Brandon T. Jackson); and first-timer Kevin Sandusky (Jay Baruchel).
After filming begins, the director (Steve Coogan) has a change of heart and throws the actors into real-life combat and they are forced to become the fighting unit they're portraying. Will they make it out of the jungle in one piece?”
