One for the Ages: 'Tropic Thunder' makes me Laugh

Here's yet another summer flick I never got to see, though it's one I certainly can't wait to watch! Comedies are definitely my favorite, too. Unfortunately sometimes the previews tend to show all of the funny parts, leaving the rest of the movie to be somewhat boring. You know what I'm talking about. After watching the preview to a movie you decide it's worth the $10 to go see it, which is $20 with a date and $50 after ordering a small soda and popcorn; you find your seat in the theatre, wrap your arm around the hottie next to you, and both of you sit there thinking it'll be a hilarious night. Lo and behold, during a second or third yawn session mid-movie you realize everything's been shown to you already. I hate that!

Fortunately, when Tropic Thunder played in theatres my brother forked over the cash to go see it himself. In his critique after watching it, apparently this is one of the rare movies where even the previews don't give justice to its humor. Chuckling to myself (still) after watching the above trailer for Tropic Thunder, I hope my brother is right! I love a good laugh. He's set my expectations for the movie to be pretty high, however, I won't be surprised if it's even funnier than what I now imagine. With an awesome cast of actors who are known for their humor, it's got to be good!

So hopefully this movie is 'one for the ages,' whatever that means. One for laughter and another for fun - or is it just one for laughter and fun? Anyways. If the trailer videos make you chuckle, expect much more from the actual film. Or so I've been told.
