Christmas Vacation makes me cry specifically because of this lady. When Aunt Bethany starts saying the pledge of allegiance and everyone else just shrugs and goes with it, I bawl. Something about the whole family just saying, “Fuck it, why not” instead of making her feel silly. I should mention that this is the example I use when I reveal that it is possible for me to cry during any movie. At all. Yeah. It at first bummed me out because Tropic Thunder is such a Movie Person’s Movie and I wanted their insights but after a few minutes I was along for the ride.
Downey plays his character the entire time, Jack Black shows up late and orders and then eats a hamburger into the mic, and Ben Stiller just kind of tries to ground it all. It’s great. I’m just sitting here trying to find out why they WIPED THEIR ASS with the tivo clause of the contract! “I was in disguise in disguise in disguise. You work hard for fifty bucks a day in this racket.”
