Tropic Thunder by JILL
Seriously an absolutely HORRIBLE movie. Matt wanted to see this one, so it was added to our Netflix queue. The three main actors: Ben Stiller, Jack Black and Robert Downey Jr. (as a black guy). The actors play actors trying to make a war movie that's gone horribly bad.
The most ridiculous? There a ton of unadvertised actors in this movie too! Nick Nolte supposedly wrote the script of the film. Matthew McConaughey (and his hair is extremely long) is Ben Stiller's agent. Tom Cruise is some flim maker big-wig, he's bald on top with super hairy chest and arms AND he's really into Rap music. Bill Hader is another film maker guy (he's from SNL). Others making cameos playing themselves? Tobey McGuire, Jon Voight, Lance Bass, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Alicia Silverstone and Tyra Banks.
I guess Hollywood is still trying to recoup from the writer's strike. So sad!
