2.5 stars (R) Ben Stiller
Action comedy starring Ben Stiller, Jack Black and Robert Downey Jr. as a trio of actors shooting a big-budget war movie who get dropped into an actual combat situation in Southeast Asia. Nick Nolte, Steve Coogan, Danny McBride, Matthew McConaughey and Tom Cruise costar. The film is ambitious as hell, but not funny as often as it should be. Too often, the action compromises the comedy. 106 minutes. DVD INFO: Includes two commentary tracks, deleted scenes, extended scenes, an alternate ending and featurettes.
