MTV Tropic Thunder Clip

Published 7 years ago by , Updated March 3rd, 2014 at 6:27 am,

From the MTV Movie Awards (which I never bother watching… way too “hip” for me, thanks) comes this “viral” promotional clip for Tropic Thunder. It starts out great with Ben Stiller, Robert Downey Jr and Jack Black. They manage to pull both Iron Man and Kung Fu Panda into a promo piece for Stiller’s film pretty creatively.

However, to me this is an example of one of the problems with comedy these days: Not knowing when to quit. I thought it was really quite funny for about the first minute and a half, but then it goes on for about another 2-3 full minutes and it literally beats the point of the skit into the ground. Overkill IMHO.

Plus watching Stiller kowtow to a stereotypical bored, disconnected teenager annoyed the heck out of me. On the other hand I really enjoyed Downey Jr in the skit. simple smile MTV Tropic Thunder Clip

  1. come on guys no matter what the heck the movie is it’s good to see tony starks in the big screen twice in 5 months isn’t it

  2. I never argued that point, but from seeing the clip above it makes me a bit worried about the humor in Tropic Thunder. The trailers look great but there’s such a thing as beating a dead horse.
