Another GREAT Movie

We watched Tropic Thunder this evening and it was hilarious. We laughed and laughed. Then we laughed all the way home. I am still chuckling thinking of certain moments. I can't think of the last time I laughed so much or for so long.

CAVEAT - this is a great "guy" movie. Everything blows up. Also, much of the humor was based on obscene language, political incorrectness, and on blood and gore. It was also surprisingly sophisticated.

Now, I am not a fan of gross-out humor. But this was so very well executed that I enjoyed every minute. And it was done with great restraint. The dialog was witty and made fun of other movies, actors, and Hollywood in general.

And, of course, Robert Downey Jr. was Brilliant playing a blonde Australian playing an African-American soldier. Did I say Brilliant? Good.

Go see this movie.
