Tropic Thunder | Ratings & Reviews

"From the genius fake trailers at the start to Tom Cruise's end titles dance routine (no, really), Tropic Thunder is one hell of a night at the movies."

Flicks, TeamFlicks

"A flashy, nasty, on-and-off funny and assaultive sendup of the film industry."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"When it's all over, you'll probably have the fondest memories of Robert Downey Jr.'s work. It's been a good year for him, this one coming after "Iron Man." He's back, big time."

Roger EbertRoger Ebert

"Tropic Thunder is a relatively smart and refreshingly politically incorrect satire, and there is a lot to like as it takes the mickey out of Hollywood's twisted priorities, fart jokes, action films, dummed-down scripts and unrealistic plot lines, overly pampered actors and money-hungry studios. Of course, it falls victim to most of this itself, but at least you'll get a laugh out of it."

New Zealand HeraldNew Zealand Herald

"Stiller manages his movie nicely so that all actors get their share of the comic spotlight. Seldom does an ensemble comedy not contain a single weak character or performance as does this one."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"To top everything off, Tom Cruise may just have resurrected his career with the role of Les Grossman."

Film ThreatFilm Threat

"It's been done before, but it hasn't been done this well for years. Tropic Thunder might just be the last behind-the-scenes-on-a-movie movie that anyone needs to make for a long time to come."

Dominion PostDominion Post

"Gleefully un-PC, Tropic provides some of the most fun you'll have at the cinema this year."
