Rented Tropic Thunder last night...

And you know, I was a bit disappointed with it. It was funny, but there were parts of it that was just not funny, like they were trying to hard. And they always show the funniest bits in the trailers...and it wasn't just this movie but for all movies in general.

Robert Downey Jr. playing an Australian dood that plays an African American was funny as all get out though! The interaction between him and his castmate, Brandon T. Jackson was great!

Don't let my poo-pooing of the movie prevent you from renting it! The beginning of the film was hilarious! :)

We have Wall-E to watch tonight! We (Eric, Nick & I) saw it in the theaters when it came out & we loved it!

Our time to watch movies has dwindled since we grew from a 2 person family to 3. I'm finding that I'm way more picky about what I watch now than I was 5 years ago.

Oh, I completely agree! Our fam went from 2 to 3 as well and our movie time is usually after we tuck our little one into bed. But if the movie is kid friendly like Wall-E is then we watch it after dinner.

I didn't realize it was on DVD.

And it sounds like it might be worth a rent. But not actually going to the movies for.

Ohhhh, this movie was very funny during the first half but once the second half started, it lost it's funny. It's worth renting it though...Redbox! But i'm glad I didnt waist $9 at the movies.

I really liked this movie and some of it is so ridiculous I really loved how the characters were like over the top... I also loved wall-e but my friends refused to see it because the first hour has no dialogue... erfs...

Haven't seen the movie yet but I heard it was hilarious! I can't wait to rent that movie and Wall-E.

Here's a little tidbit from Tropic Thunder...

Kirk Lazarus (Downey Jr.): Everybody knows you never go full retard.
Tug Speedman (Stiller): What do you mean?
Kirk Lazarus: Check it out. Dustin Hoffman, 'Rain Man,' look retarded, act retarded, not retarded. Counted toothpicks, cheated cards. Autistic, sho'. Not retarded. You know Tom Hanks, 'Forrest Gump.' Slow, yes. Retarded, maybe. Braces on his legs. But he charmed the pants off Nixon and won a ping-pong competition. That ain't retarded. Peter Sellers, "Being There." Infantile, yes. Retarded, no. You went full retard, man. Never go full retard. You don't buy that? Ask Sean Penn, 2001, "I Am Sam." Remember? Went full retard, went home empty handed...

LOL!
