Poster of Tropic Thunder   (2008)

Action movie star Tugg Speedman is on the downslide of his professional career. He wants to be considered a serious actor, but his latest serious role as the title character in "Simple Jack" resulted in negative reviews and ridicule. Comedian Jeff Portnoy is best known for his leading roles in sophomoric comedies, and may be less well known for his rampant drug use. Five time Oscar winner Kirk Lazarus is a serious method actor, who immerses himself in whatever the role. On location in southeast Vietnam, they are the stars of "Tropic Thunder", based on Vietnam war veteran 'Four Leaf' Tayback's memoirs of his rescue during the war, that rescue which was considered a near suicide mission for the assigned army force and resulted in him losing both hands. For his role, Caucasian Australian Lazarus even went through a controversial surgical skin dying procedure so that he could convincingly play a black man. Production is not going well since rookie director Damien Cockburn is unable to ...

Sexy, Sex and Nude Scenes

A man talks about his love for another man.

There is a trailer for a movie about gay Catholic priests.

There are other jokes involving male and female private parts.

A man wearing a harness says it is "up his crack."

A man looks at a magazine of topless women. Bare breasts are seen.

Some of the sexual references are graphic, including Jack Black talking about oral sex in exchange for his release.

Violent and Bloody Scenes

A main storyline of the movie involves actors who think they are making a war movie but then actually have to become real soldiers to fight off a drug cartel.

The beginning of the movie has a long graphic scene containing gore and violence. This scene is a satire on many other movies (there are a lot of references to Platoon and Saving Private Ryan), although the violence is toned down in a way that conveys it as a low-budget film. Many people get shot in the face and suffer wounds by other weapons such as bayonets. There is an excessive, unrealistic amount of spraying blood used for comedic effect

In this same fake war movie, a man suffers a prolonged disemboweling by a bayonet, though he does not act nearly as wounded as the visual effects suggest, and appears to survive as though it's a minor flesh wound, even attempting to put his insides back into his body later. This is done satirically.

Tugg is shown with somewhat fake looking severed hands.

Offscreen, Tugg kills a panda then proceeds to wear its skin as camouflage. This scene is much less graphic than the scenes involving human violence, probably deliberately.

Multiple shootouts occur between several characters, some are real bullets others are blanks (in the context of the film).

Halfsquat, a child, stabs Tugg and is consequently thrown off a bridge by Tugg.

Please note that this is a comedy and all violence is taken very lightly or presented in a comical and slapstick fashion.

Scary and Disturbing Scenes

The opening battle scene can be intense for some viewers.

Some animal lovers may find the panda scene disturbing, but the violence in this scene is presented in a more cartoonish fashion than the rest of the movie.

Review

'Tropic Thunder' is the sharpest, nastiest, and most honest parody of Hollywood since Altman's 'The Player'.

If Doweny Jr. in black face, the script's use of "retard", or the politically incorrect humor offends you, you're missing the point.

Only Russel Crowe, Robin Williams, and Harvey Weinstein should take offense. The parodies of their personalities, their films, and their business tactics are downright cruel. (But, so, so true, and so brilliant.) I must credit every actor -- particularly Downey Jr. and Cruise -- for their performances, and for making their characters more than stereotypes for cheap laughs.

The more you know about Hollywood, the more you will appreciate the film. If not, just go and laugh at the genre. It takes balls to leave in a scene discussing how Blue-Ray conquered HD-DVD (and expect anyone to fine it funny). But it is funny.

To utterly relish the insanity, brush up on 'Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse'.

They got it so right. So, so, so right.
