Tropic Thunder

We got free tickets to a screening of "Tropic Thunder" last night (it comes out on Friday). All I have to say is that this movie is ridiculously funny.

It is funny like "Walk Hard" or "Taledega Nights" in quality and quantity of the humor. Yes, that means it is a filthy, disturbing movie that will make you cringe as often as it will make you laugh. Yes that means that (if you like those other movies) you will laugh until your abs hurt and your cheeks ache.

I won't spoil anything for you by telling you that this movie is about people trying to make a war movie and getting caught up in real conflict. But just like "Anchor Man" was about a TV news anchor, the plot doesn't encompass the depth and breadth of the hilarity.

Go and see this movie (if you are not easily offended and you like the movies above).
