"I don't drop character till I do the DVD commentary."
There's a lot to love and laugh about in Ben Stiller's Tropic Thunder but most notably is Robert Downey Jr's fantastic performance as Kirk Lazarus. Kirk is a 3 time Oscar winning performer who takes his roles a bit too seriously. For Tropic Thunder, which is the film that's being made in this film (also titled Tropic Thunder), Kirk gets a pigment surgery to turn himself black and subsequently begins to believe he is actually a black man. At one point he says, "I'm a dude playing a dude disguised as another dude." Considering this is the same year that Iron Man released it was a monumental year for the Downey Jr's return to Hollywood. If you ask me, I believe he deserved the Oscar nomination. Downey's performance aside you need to see this movie because; vulgar and bald Tom Cruise is amazing, Booty Sweat and Bust-A-Nut, Jack Black as a flamboyant drug addict. Really though, there's a lot of memorable lines and characters. This is a comedy I've been able to return to year after year and I always find myself laughing. Bust open a can of Booty Sweat and enjoy this hilarious movie.
