My Review:This is a true action-comedy. I know the point of the movie was to make fun of action movies, war movies and the movie business in general but it had some cool explosions. I might add funny explosions. This movie was entertaining while at the same time “action packed” especially the end. Even with a full cast of comedian actors the funniest character in the movie is Robert Downey Jr’s character. Right now there are three “big” comedies out Step Brothers, Pineapple Express, and Tropic Thunder; out of those three I would recommend Tropic Thunder. I also like the cameos, not over used and equally as fun as the principal cast. This movie is a good one and one of the better comedies of this summer. I want to say good bye to the summer movie season and say hello to the fall movie season.
