Ben Stiller - Hollywood God

I don't think people realize the greatness of Ben Stiller. Sure we see him as a funny guy in a lot of screwball comedies, but when I was talking with someone the other day, they had no idea he was a director. Much less, a writer. Dude! He's written and directed some of the best comedies out there ... Zoolander, The Cable Guy, Reality Bites ... The Ben Stiller Show. And it's fun to see how all of the circles and dots connect. Stiller and Judd Apatow go WAY back. Like back to the Heavyweights and The Ben Stiller Show. God bless the IMDB.

So it's no wonder that I enjoyed Tropic Thunder. My personal highlights ... Tom Cruise and Mathew McConaughey. Oh, did they make me giggle.
