Tropic Thunder is a hilarious comedy with an all-star cast. "Im a dude, playing a dude, disguised as another dude!" A popular line from white Australian turned black American actor (Robert Downey Jr) which more or less describes the plot of the movie. A group of actors are shooting an expensive action film on location when things continue go south. This film stars RDJ, Ben Stiller, Jack Black, Jay Baruchel, Nick Nolte, Danny McBride, Matthew McConaughey, Brandon T Jackson, and an unrecognizable Tom Cruise.
This movie while hilarious, was also met with some controversy mostly because of RDJ's use of blackface. It was also met with controversy because of some of the language, mostly pertaining to Ben Stiller's characters most popular role of "Simple Jack" in which he played a mentally handicaped person.
