Tropic Thunder

Synopsis: Action movie star Tugg Speedman is on the downslide of his professional career. He wants to be considered a serious actor, but his latest serious role as the title character in "Simple Jack" resulted in negative reviews and ridicule. Comedian Jeff Portnoy is best known for his leading roles in sophomoric comedies, and may be less well known for his rampant drug use. Five time Oscar winner Kirk Lazarus is a serious method actor, who immerses himself in whatever the role. On location in southeast Vietnam, they are the stars of "Tropic Thunder", based on Vietnam war veteran 'Four Leaf' Tayback's memoirs of his rescue during the war, that rescue which was considered a near suicide mission for the assigned army force and resulted in him losing both hands. For his role, Caucasian Australian Lazarus even went through a controversial surgical skin dying procedure so that he could convincingly play a black man. Production is not going well since rookie director Damien Cockburn is unable to cont

In 2013, when the Earth's rotation

came to a halt...

The President has declared

all of North America a disaster area.

I call on my fellow Americans

to come together...

... the world called on the one man

who could make a difference.

When it happened again,

the world called on him once more.

And no one saw it coming

three more times!

Now,

the one man who made a difference

five times before,

is about to make a difference again.

Only this time, it's different.

Who left the fridge open?

Tugg Speedman.

Scorcher Vl:
Global Meltdown.

Here we go again.

Again.

Will there be anything else?

Yes, my dear man. More beans.

America's favorite obese family is back.

The Fatties:
Fart Two.

In some countries,

it's considered a compliment.

Letting loose this summer.

In a time where to be different

was to be condemned,

and to be condemned was to die,

one man chose to question his God.

I've been a bad, bad boy, Father.

In the winter of 1969,

an elite force of the U.S. Army

was sent on a top-secret assignment

in southeast Vietnam.

The objective,

rescue Sergeant Four Leaf Tayback

from a heavily guarded

NVA Prison Camp.

The mission was considered

to be near suicide.

Of the 10 men sent, four returned.

Of those four, three wrote books

about what happened.

Of those three, two were published.

Of those two, just one got a movie deal.

This is the story of the men

who attempted to make that movie.
