Tropic Thunder

Alex and I are obviously behind on the whole watching of films when they come out. Because of the high cost of movie going in the city, we tend to Netflix things all the time. We recently watched Tropic Thunder. Oh my god. Alex laughed harder than I have ever seen him laugh. All I know is that Jack Black eating a bat just about did it for him. For me, it was Ben Stiller and his ridiculous character. I also loved they Jon Cryer look-a-like (whatever his name was). And a fat Tom Cruise? Yes, please. I can't even begin to tell you how many things I found funny in this film. I am slowly being converted to realize I should only watch funny films. All the other ones seem to be "too much" right now (you know, the economy, my thesis project, the planet, the government, all of it...). Give me "Simple Jack" any day. And those "previews"? Seriously? I just about died (after being slightly confused). While I realize this in no way is a synopsis of the movie or any description about what is good/what is bad, I just don't care. Go see it if you haven't. And if you have, fast forward to your favorite part and watch it again. And again. And again. I am pretty sure this will be a purchased movie for our family.

His name is Jay Baruchel - an Apatow Alumnus and therefore one of the loves of my life.
