Re: Tropic Thunder Grading and Discussion - Spoilers.
I read that Ben Stiller got the idea for the plot of the movie from all these interviews famous actors would give about how they would go through basic training for war and action movies and would always say that it was the toughest thing they ever had to do in their lives. Stiller thought that was a load of crap. " Hey I've been in those types of movies !You guys go through 2 weeks of calisthenics and thats mostly for 2 hours a day!".
"Spider-Man doesn't have fans. He has people who follow him. Like Jesus. Now I have fans! People who adore and worship every little thing I do or say. Like David Koresh. Or The Jonas Brothers."
