I had heard that Tom Cruise‘s cameo as studio executive Les Grossman in Tropic Thunder was particularly comic. Â And the box office start did not disappoint. Â It was the funniest I had ever seen him. Â Watching his performance alone was well worth the price of the ticket.
While I was prepared for his comic turn, I was not prepared for his appearance. Â When I first saw him, I thought it was Andrew Sullivan who was making a cameo in the flick. Â Cruise appeared not as his normal boyish self, but bearded, balding and, well, bearish.
And the movie, while politically incorrect was pure entertainment. Â A few flaws here and there, but definitely worth the fourteen bucks to see it on the big screen — or whatever they’re charging in your town.
