Movie:  “Tropic Thunder”

“Tropic Thunder” web site

* * * 1/2 (3 1/2 out of 5)

Pretty funny, good cast.  I wanted something silly and I got it.

I had no idea that Tom Cruise played the part he did until I saw the credits!

I laughed out loud at the silliest parts — including, for some reason, the panda scene.  Note the recurring beverage theme …

At first I didn’t like this movie but then when the plot twisted about midway, it got interesting.

It’s a parody of the making of “Apocalypse Now” or the “lite version” of “Hearts of Darkness,” a documentary that chronicled how Francis Ford Coppola was beset with so many problems when making “Apolcalypse Now” that the movie almost didn’t get out the door.

How did you like “Tropic Thunder?”
