Ben Stiller’s largest budget and last starring comedy is called Tropic Thunder, which opens today. Other stars include Jack Black, Tom Cruise, and Robert Downey Jr. playing an African American in the film. The last star’s depiction is creating controversy as it stirs up a debate regarding race and people with disabilities. The movie looks to be a success as a Vietnam war spoof based on unconventional themes. The best I’ve heard to describe it is, “savage satire.” Take a look and see what you think.
