Added DiffLines:

* FailedASpotCheck: Peck tries to ask the FourEyesZeroSoul Grossman if he needs glasses when he demands to know if Grossman even read Tugg Speedman's contract.


Added DiffLines:

* FourEyesZeroSoul: Les Grossman is a downplayed example, he may not be a diabolical madman bent on world domination, but he is perfectly willing to let Tugg die in a jungle on the other side of the globe just to make a buck.

* AffectionateParody: ''Tropic Thunder'' is a very mean-spirited parody of movie production in general, but it also shows that there people in the industry are very passionate about it.

** In the “never go full retard” speech, Kirk mentions Peter Sellers in ‘’Film/BeingThere’’ as an example of how to correctly play InspirationallyDisadvantaged. However, Sellers was only nominated for ‘’Being There’’. He didn’t actually win.

* ArtisticLicenseAwards: At the end of the film, Kirk presents the Academy Award for Best Actor to [[spoiler: Tugg]]. However, the award for Best Actor is presented by the winner of Best ''Actress'' from the previous year; if the winner is unavailable, it's still someone of the opposite gender. Possibly subverted, as it's AllThereInTheManual that Kirk actually ''has'' won an Oscar for Best Actress. Of course, that he was ever nominated for Best Actress at all comes back around to artistic license.

* The popular rapper turned actor: [[AlPacino Alpa Chino]] (Brandon T. Jackson), who markets an energy drink called "Booty Sweat" and doesn't take kindly to Kirk's portrayal of a black man.

** The shot of Jeff poised next to the pile of heroin (itself piled into a similar shape to the mountain out of ''Film/CloseEncountersOfTheThirdKind'') is a pastiche of Indy about to pick up the statue in the intro of ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk''.
