Tropic Thunder

I thought this was going to be a good Vietnam war spoof as it had Ben Stiller, Robert Downey Jr., The McConnaughey, Jack Black, and The Cruiser.

It turned out to be bit of a yawn. There were a few funny bits here and there, and Robbo and The Cruiser were fun to watch, but there were just too many flat jokes and it took a serious turn a few times too many.

It gets good reviews on the interwebs though which mystifies me a bit.

Tower Heist

Not long after watching Drive I watched this one.

Not many laughs for a comedy and the story is very implausable but it was mild entertainment on a long flight. Alan Alda played the rich business dude who scams millions in a Ponzi scheme and also had Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy. Good to see Eddie Murphy again.
