TROPIC THUNDER is a comedy adventure film about a group of Hollywood actors who go to the jungle to make a movie.

Language

There is strong language (e.g. 'motherf**ker' and 'f**k').

Sex

There are strong verbal sex references. A character experiencing drug withdrawal makes some graphic remarks by way of solicitation to a character he believes to be gay.

Violence

There is some blood and gore in a comic context.

There are drug references as one of the characters is a drug addict, and some scenes feature a jungle heroin factory.

One of the 'actors' within the film is shown to have once made a film as a mentally disabled man and several spoof scenes from this film are shown. In addition, one of the principal 'actors' is a white man who has 'blacked up' for the role in the film-within-a-film. These are all within a comic/ spoof context.
