Tropic Thunder

Action comedy. While shooting the epic Vietnam War film Tropic Thunder, the production quickly derails thanks to the gigantic egos of everyone involved in the production - Tugg Speedman, an action hero trying to segue out of that genre and Jeff Portnoy, a drug-addicted fat comic also attempting to change his image by taking on such a serious film. They star alongside five-time Oscar-winner Kirk Lazarus, a man who insists on immersing himself totally in a role.
