Vietnam veteran "Four Leaf" Tayback's memoir, Tropic Thunder, is being made into a film. Director Damien Cockburn can’t control the cast of prima donnas. Behind schedule and over budget, Cockburn is ordered by a studio executive to get filming back on track, or risk its cancellation. On Tayback's advice, Cockburn drops the actors into the middle of the jungle to film the remaining scenes. Unbeknownst to the actors and production, the group have been dropped in the middle of the Golden Triangle, the home of heroin-producing gangs.
Yes some people despise the movie for it's war humor and disgusting scenes but that is what the movie is about, when watching this movie, from the beginning you have humor thrown at you with its humerus adds for movies, you should go into this movie wanting a laughs and don't take it seriously, I know some of you are like war is a bad thing and people die out there but I am like that too. Just watch this movie for a bit of a laugh.
