-->'''Kevin:''' Now, if you recall that whole hullabaloo where Hollywood was split into schisms, some studios backing Blu-ray disc, others backing HD DVD. People thought it would come down to pixel rate or refresh rate, and they're pretty much the same. What it came down to was a combination between gamers and porn. Now, whichever format porno backs is usually the one that becomes the uh most successful. But, you know, Sony, every PlayStation 3 has a Blu-ray in it.\\

Added DiffLines:

** Creator/RobertDowneyJr as Kirk Lazarus as Lincoln Osiris. A black guy acting stereotypically black? Not funny. A white guy acting stereotypically black? Really not funny. A white guy who's dedicated enough to convince himself that he actually ''is'' a black guy, to the point that ''he lectures an actual black guy who uses [[NWordPrivileges the n word]]?'' So ridiculous it can't be taken seriously.

** Tugg Speedman is a spoof of a young Creator/SylvesterStallone that has a small frustrated parallel with Creator/TomHanks, who entered in ''ForrestGump'' (''Simple Jack'') and ''SavingPrivateRyan'' (''Tropic Thunder'').
