Tropic Thunder

A film crew moves to the jungle for a big-udget adaptation of a Vietnam veteran's memoir. Unbeknownst to them, they are dropped off at the infamous Golden Triangle, the heroin-peddling Flaming Dragon gang's main trading grounds and suddenly the movie they're making takes a very realistic edge. Starring Ben Stiller, Jack Black, Steve Coogan and Robert Downey Jr. cast as an African-American, Ben Stiller takes the American box office by storm and generates heaps of controversy in a relentlessly funny attack against the film industry and all things politically correct.
