Image for Tropic ThunderNot currently available on BBC iPlayer

Duration: 1 hour, 40 minutes

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 award winner Kirk Lazarus, a man who insists on immersing himself totally in a role.
