The movie was released in 2001, set in the Incan kingdom, and influenced by ancient Peruvian culture. It won many fans with its brilliance.
10. Tropic Thunder
“I once showed it to a couple of friends while they were stoned. I was scared the neighbors were gonna end up calling the cops about the noise because my friends were screaming with laughter throughout the entire movie. We even had to pause the movie several times just so they could catch their breath. 10/10,” one user shared.
Another user replied, “One of the most fun nights of my entire life was when my husband and I took edibles and watched Tropic Thunder. He had never seen it before. He was inconsolable. We also had to constantly pause the movie because he needed time to recover from jokes. At one point, he was like, “Is this movie where memes came from?” So many lines of it are memed to hell today, and he had no idea this was the origin.
Tropic Thunder is one of those movies where you need to pause some scenes to recover from laughing too hard!
