Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Tropic Thunder
Comedy Ghetto: SMASHED. Robert Downey Jr. got an Oscar nomination for his performance!
Both he and Tom Cruise also got Golden Globe nominations.
The script called for Tran's tattoo on his chest to be of a "flaming dragon raping a monkey, raping a skull, raping a rat."
Let's be real: if this movie didn't cross the line multiple times, it would not be HALF as funny and awesome as it is.
Draco in Leather Pants: Les Grossman. A foul-mouthed, greedy jerkass executive producer who leaves one of his actors to die at the hands of a gang, yet became so popular and beloved that he will even get to be the focus of a possible sequel!
The full retard speech is hilarous for the fact that Penn won a Oscar (albeit not for a handicapped person, but still) the same year the film was released. And also that Robert Downey Jr. himself got a nomination for his role in this film.
