Tropic Thunder- A mom's review!



I had to find out what all the golden globe and academy award hoopla was about! Hubby and I watched this and laughed our heads off. Yes it's nonsense, yes it's stupid, yes...it's funny!

It has a ton of cursing, and a ton of violence (most of which looks fake, which is the point). It is a spoof on war movies like Platoon and how Hollywood actors are. Since I am in that world I thought it was hysterical. I think you will too!

Since I will me Mrs. Netflix over the next weeks (saving money and too tired to go out!), here's my rating system:

I give this movie 4 out of 5 Cosmopolitans!

This is coming up next in my Netflix queue. I am really looking forward to seeing it. I saw The Reader last weekend and it was SO good. I plan to see Revolutionary Road today.

Love your rating system!!!
I also thought this was hysterical. Not a huge Tom Cruise fan but he was fantastic in this. Robert Downey Jr????? AMAZING! What a great actor! I can't wait to see Revolutionary Road.

I thought this movie was hilarious (politically incorrect but so funny)! I especially loved Tom Cruise-he did a great job! I actually forgot (temporarily how crazy he is)
