Saturday Night In: Tropic Thunder

Saturday Night In Recommendations

Sometimes you just don’t feel like going out or doing anything on a Saturday night other than lying in bed watching a movie. These movies might not be specific to one genre but they usually have one thing in common, they are easy to watch. These new posts are recommendations for easy to watch movies that you might enjoy on you Saturday night in.

This week’s recommendation is: Tropic Thunder

Tropic Thunder

Recommendation: If you haven’t seen Tropic Thunder, you are missing out. The premise of the movie may sound ridiculous and the opening is extremely over the top but the film itself is hilarious. There are so many great one liners and laugh out loud moments that make Tropic Thunder a fun viewing experience. The film is a complete satire about making movies and the characters involved, such as over the top method actors, ageing action stars, drug addicted comedians, studio executives and business focused agents. If you a looking for a fun watch on a Saturday Night in, Tropic Thunder is a good place to start.

Synopsis: Tugg Speedman (Ben Stiller), pampered action superstar, sets out for Southeast Asia to take part in the biggest, most-expensive war movie produced, but soon after filming begins, he and his co-stars, Oscar-winner Kirk Lazarus (Robert Downey Jr.), comic Jeff Portnoy (Jack Black) and the rest of the crew, must become real soldiers when fighting breaks out in that part of the jungle.
