A recent addition to Netflix, Tropic Thunder is the light-hearted and silly movie that you need to Netflix and Chill. It’s an outstanding cast led by Ben Stiller, Robert Downey, Jr. and Jack Black. The characters they’re portraying in the movie are all actors who think they’re heading into Vietnam where they think they’re going to be filming a big movie. The movie is based on a book written by Sgt. Fourleaf Tayback who has a mythical-like legacy, but the problem is, there is no movie being made anymore as the actors find themselves immersed in a real-life war where they have to fight to get out of Vietnam.

Stiller is great, as he always is, but I loved seeing Downey, Jr. take on a big comedic role, which he nailed, of course. Jack Black is insanely funny as a drug-addicted fart comic who is going through withdrawals when he can’t get to his “jellybeans” when they’re stranded in the jungle. All-around funny movie.
