Now miraculously, the Oscar-nominated, Tropic Thunder, see the usual Frat Pack return for their low brow comedyas the cast play a bunch of actors, working on a war epic.

Downey Jr.’s role undoubtedly steals the show, but as the plot develops, and draws somewhat thin, it is left to a prelude of fake trailers at the start and a fat suited Tom Cruise at the finish to keep Tropic Thunder falling far from its billing.

Though they are worth the money alone.
