Through a series of freak occurrences, a group of actors shooting a big-budget war movie are forced to become the soldiers they are portraying. A film crew is in Southeast Asia filming a Vietnam-war memoir. It’s early in the shooting, but they’re already behind schedule and over budget. On the day an accident befalls the novice director, the cast and crew are attacked by a gang of poppy-growing local drug dealers, except the cast and crew don’t realize these aren’t actors who are stalking them. The thugs kidnap Tugg Speedman, an actor whose star seems on the decline, and it’s up to the rest of the ragtag team to band together long enough to attempt his rescue.
I almost didn’t watch this movie. It’s a standard knee jerk response when Ben Stiller is concerned. But because I was somewhere other than my house and there’s no more promising movie on hand, then it was Tropic Thunder then. Luckily, I didn’t really regret watching it. But it was not that good either. I know that it would be a crappy movie. But okay lah. What can I say?
The movie starred quite a big number of class A actor. Jay Baruchel included. This is his third movie that I watched him. He got quite a number of repertoire in his rapsheet.
It’s a crazy movie. I can tell you that.
