Rain of Madness - A Hilarious Mockumentary for Ben Stiller's Tropic Thunder
Rain of Madness is a mockumentary for the comedy Tropic Thunder starring Ben Stiller, Jack Black, Robert Downing Jr. and Steve Coogan supposedly chronicling the behind the scenes filming of Tropic Thunder which made its USA theatrical debut on August 13th. I think I got to the party a bit too late by posting this video now after the movie premiered but I think it is so funny! Juvenile as heck but funny to me nevertheless. The fake documentary mocks Hearts of Darkness which is a real documentary that chronicles the making of Francis Ford Coppola's epic war film Apocalypse Now.
"Tropic Thunder is a 2008 action comedy film directed by Ben Stiller and written by Stiller, Justin Theroux, and Etan Cohen. The film stars Stiller, Jack Black and Robert Downey Jr. as a group of prima donna actors making a Vietnam War film when their fed-up writer and director decide to abandon them in the middle of the jungle, forcing them to fight their way out."
Check out the trailer for Tropic Thunder if you have not done so already or watched the film. I think its totally hilarious!
