Tropic Thunder is directed and co-written by Ben Stiller, and it stars Ben Stiller, Robert Downey, Jr., Jack Black, Jay Baruchel, Brandon T. Jackson, and Tom Cruise in a satirical comedy film about a group of actors that are in the danger zone because they were hard to work with in the set, and when a mistake happened that cause the director to not be there, the actors think that they are still in a movie, not realizing that they have to go up against real soldiers. I think in comparisons to other Ben Stiller directed films, Tropic Thunder is probably his funniest one so far. The cast in this are fantastic, the best ones being Robert Downey Jr., and Tom Cruise. When I first saw Robert Downey Jr. in this when I was in my pre-teens, it went over my head that he was playing a character that is blackface, and when I see it again, I was a bit shocked at it, and it's one of those aspects that can either be really funny, or really offensive, in this though, Robert Downey Jr. played it very naturally that he really pulled it off as a method actor that had to play that type of character. Tom Cruise plays it over the top which is something that I never quite seen from him, but it is hilarious to watch and I would like to see this type of character again from Tom Cruise. The humor in this is top notch, it doesn't mess around and goes all out about with tons of hilarious jokes. The satire in it has a lot of bite in it that surprisingly worked for me, and the characters are very memorable in it that every character has a comedic part, even the small parts. The action scenes are done in an entertaining and funny way, and the writing has a lot of good lines that are still famous to this day. The interplay between the actors is hilarious also that I would just hear the conversation for an hour and would still laugh at what they are talking about. Tropic Thunder is one of the funniest movies that I've seen in a long time, and I definitely would go back to it to watch it again.
