Default Tropic Thunder

Finally............. a movie in which Matthew Mcconaughey, Tom Cruise & Ben Stiller have roles that match their abilities. And, Robert Downy Jr. does a good (if totally unPC) job.

Rick Peck:
Let me get this straight. You want me to let my client of 15 years, one of my best friends, die in the jungle alone, for some money and a G5?

Les Grossman:
Yes

If Keith Ledger hadn't croaked I bet Robert Downey Jr. would have won best actor that year.

Downey & Jackson (as Alpa Chino) did superlative jobs in their roles. Am surprised we haven't seen more of Brandon T. Jackson. While Cruise was good, his skit at the end is terrific. As my friend told me at the start, its a movie that grows on you long after it ends.
