The first full length trailer for the Ben Stiller-directed movie Tropic Thunder looks like it could be a fairly riotous affair.? It was hard to tell just what first impressions to make of the movie when all it was known for was that Robert Downey Jr. was playing a character who goes blackface.
But the movie looks like a dead on satire of Hollywood and to a lesser degree Vietnam-era movies.? Pretty much no movie should us Buffalo Sprinfield’s “For What It’s Worth” but then again this is satire.? The movie even handles Downey Jr.’s blackface really well and he has some great lines and interactions with the other black actors in this one. ? We could have a sleeper on our hands this summer.
