Film of the day: Tropic Thunder

Tropic Thunder

Unleash your inner infant and revel in this Hollywood satire which features a sublime cameo from Tom Cruise as a grotesque studio producer drunk on his own mania for control and power.

Tropic Thunder follows a bunch of egotistical actors (Ben Stiller, Robert Downey Jr, and Jack Black) filming a Vietnam war movie who are so deep in to the role and so far up their own backsides that they don’t realise the bullets whizzing past their heads are real after they’ve stumbled upon a heroin production camp.

Stupid, inventive and funny.

Tropic Thunder – Thursday at 10.00pm on Comedy Central
