Tropic Thunder 2008

Tropic Thunder, a Vietnam-era war film based on the memoirs of vet Four Leaf Tayback (played by Nick Nolte).

Production delays and gaffes have put the movie a month behind schedule after just four days of shooting, which leads to studio head Les Grossman (Tom Cruise) tearing director Damien Cockburn (Steve Coogan) a new one. Cockburn better get his group of prima donna actors under control, Grossman warns, or he’ll be off the project. Four Leaf advises Cockburn to dump the actors action star Tugg Speedman (Ben Stiller), five-time Oscar winner Kirk Lazarus (Robert Downey, Jr.), drug addicted comedian Jeff Portnoy (Jack Black), rapper Alpa Chino (Brandon T. Jackson), and character actor Kevin Sandusky (Jay Baruchel) in the middle of the jungle, after having first rigged up hidden cameras, microphones, and fake explosions to capture everything on film. This will give the film the sense of realism it needs and get the production back on track.
