'Tropic Thunder' ...

Crude? Check.

Profane? Check.

Laugh-out-loud funny? Many, many times over? Check.

Most clever opening minutes in a film, maybe ever? Check.

Robert Downey Jr. can do no wrong. (The Academy needs to create new categories just so it can give many statues to this guy.)

Tom Cruise is back.

The reign of "The Dark Knight" is over.

The box office has a new No. 1 movie.

I'm glad you liked it. I want to see Downey nominated for this. Won't that be a contest - the dead guy wearing makeup against the white guy pretending to be black while wearing makeup.

I don't know if Tropic Thunder will beat out Dark Knight. But I suspect it will be close.

Well, I don't mean in total box-office grosses, no. But this weekend, I don't think The Dark Knight will be the No. 1 movie again. I think TT will take that spot.
