    If there is one movie that you must see (well besides The Dark Knight) it is Tropic Thunder. I saw an advanced screening of the movie last night and it was awesome. Freakin' brilliant in comedy. It's one of those movies that you can't stop laughing. One joke after another.

    I can understand why there were people protesting the movie but come on, the movie itself made fun of the retard issue. Some of the best scenes were of Ben Stiller as "Simple Jack".

    And Robert Downey, Jr. was awesome in this movie. He should get a comedy award for his role. :lol 

    Oh, and Tom Cruise!! Geez, talk about a comedy comeback (if that is what he was going for). He was just hilarious. Everything that came out of his mouth was brilliant.

    I haven't seen Pineapple Express but I'm pretty sure it is not as funny as this movie. At one point in the movie I started tearing because of the laughter, and that rarely happens to me.

    A movie with Jack Black and Ben Stiller? I'll definitely pass on this one.

    In the previews, it shows Ben stiller in what I assume is another movie, dressed in arctic gear with baby seals strapped to his jacket. I died laughing.


    And major lulz at "I'm the dude disguised as a dude playing another dude!"

    Saw it this morning. Fucking loved it. RDJ was brilliant and this was the first movie I actually saw Tom Crusie as an actor.

    The best were the fake previews before the movies.

    I. Liked. It. No. I didn't like it. I loved it. And I'm someone who gave up on American comedy. This movie gave me a hope. Right up the a-hole. 10/10

    *Spoiler-ish: Surprisingly, the funniest part with Robert Downey Jr. didn't involve him playing a black guy.

    Yes, the fake previews were awesome. RDJ preview was freakin' hilarious. Everyone in the theater was basically saying "WTF!! :lol ".

    The previews before the movie are the movies that made the "movie actors" famous. I hope that made sense. But that Booty Sweat energy drink was freakin' crazy. That one caught everyone off guard because we didn't know what the hell was going on. :lol

    Jack Black was definitely the weakest, but Robert Downey Jr. was just so brilliant. Don't pass on this one unless you're 17 or older. I can't believe some people brought their kids to this movie.

    To parents on TFW, don't take your kids to this movie. It has everything but sexuality and nudity. (Although Jack Black in briefs is offensive enough)

    That rules out a large segment of the potential viewing population...including me, thankfully. In context, I'm guessing that should be 'younger'.

    The movie must be a lot better than the trailers are making it out to be, though, to be getting these kinds of rave reviews. Both times I saw the trailer, there was silence in the theatre (and the first time, the theatre was packed for TDK). Even Beverly Hills Chihuahua got some laughs (somehow...), but for this one...:tumbleweed:
