Anybody go see it yet? I went and saw it last night and I can see where some of the flak they are taking is coming from but it was funny as hell plus they had some sweet krinks in it. Tom Cruise and Matthew Mcconaughey were pretty funny in it too. There are a lot of cameos in there that I wouldn't have suspected.

I really thought that Robert Downey Jr really made that movie, he was a totally convincing african-american. Not to mention the stink Alpa Chino made about him being an Aussie

Just about anything said or a word will set some people off in a idiotic rampage.

What got me shaking my head and questioning the mental stability of some of these people(parents), is when they dragged their mentally retarded children in front a movie theather, and made them hold signs protesting the movie. Those poor kids didn't know what was happening, now those parents are truely mental sick.

I saw it today and it was A GOOD MOVIE ... Lots of AK's and Krinkov's some 5.45 but mostly 7.62.... Funny as hell too... :lol:
The Pyro Guy killed me with his commentary :lol:
what were they protesting??
Mental Disability Groups were protesting the way the mentally handicapped are refered to in the Movie... I could see where people could get mad... Personally, I didn't see any thing too seriously offensive, then again I have a Dark sense of Humour :twisted:

they need to just accept that the accepted vernacular for the "mentally handicapped" is retarded. thats just how it is, no question.

Tropic Thunder has caused controversy in the disability advocacy community. A website for Simple Jack, a faux film exhibited within the film, was pulled on August 4, amid several groups' concerns over its portrayal of mental retardation, called "intellectual disabilities" by disability advocacy groups. A spokesman for DreamWorks stated "We heard their concerns, and we understand that taken out of context, the site appeared to be insensitive to people with disabilities." A coalition of more than 22 disability advocacy groups, including the Special Olympics and the Arc of the United States, object to the repeated use of the word "retard", which disability advocates call "the R-word" because of its negative connotations. DreamWorks initially spoke of screening the film with the groups to determine if the film still offended the groups. However, the screening was postponed to the same day of the premiere on August 11 instead of August 8. After some representatives for the groups saw the private screening, they picketed outside the film's premiere. Timothy Shriver, the chairman of the Special Olympics stated "This population struggles too much with the basics to have to struggle against Hollywood. We're sending a message that this hate speech is no longer acceptable."

Disability advocates and others who have previewed the film report that the offensive treatment of individuals with mental disabilities is woven throughout the film’s plot. Disability advocates are urging people not to see the film, claiming it is demeaning to individuals with mental disabilities. They fear it will encourage bullying. Etan Cohen, the co-writer of the film, claimed "Some people have taken this as making fun of handicapped people, but we're really trying to make fun of the actors who use this material as fodder for acclaim." He went on to state that the film lampoons actors such as Dustin Hoffman and Tom Hanks who portrayed mentally retarded characters in Rain Man and Forrest Gump, respectively. A DreamWorks spokesman did not directly respond to the criticism, stating that the film "...is an R-rated comedy that satirizes Hollywood and its excesses, makes its point by featuring inappropriate and over-the top characters in ridiculous situations." The film's advertising has been altered, but none of the scenes in the film were edited as a result of the opposition

Protesting movies always has the opposite intended effect on me. Whether it's the left or right or some other group telling me I shouldn't watch something I feel the need to see it. :grin:

I have basically the same type of outlook with so called "film critics". Usually if they hate a movie, it turns out to be good, the ones they say are good, turns out to be a dog, and a waste of money, as well as 1.5 hours of my life that I will never get back

protestors. I guess SATIRE isnt in their vocab. oh well.

I loved the film, saw it with a bunch of friends and we all laughed our asses off VERY hard. Albeit, we are all die hard war movie fans so it all made sense.

RDJ did a great great job on his character. Gotta love the M-60 and old school nam gear.
