(mbc.net) A burgeoning movie director named Damien Cockburn (Steve Coogan) struggles with unruly cast members while filming his latest flick: Tropic Thunder, a motion picture adaptation of a Vietnam War veteran's bestselling memoir.
Cockburn shoots the biopic deep within the Vietnamese jungle, ordering its stars to improvise the film's script while firing dummy rounds at Vietcong -- who are actually native drug lords living within the so-called set's parameters.
Tropic Thunder was nominated for an Oscar, two Golden Globes, an MTV Movie Award, and a Teen Choice Award. The picture earned an impressive $188 million at the box office, twice its $92 million production cost.
