Bungle in the jungle. Actor-turned-director Ben Stiller, stung by being rejected for Oliver Stone’s Platoon, takes revenge on all Hollywood with this occasionally hilarious movie-within-a-movie satire about a cast of spoiled actors (Stiller, Robert Downey Jr. Jack Black, Brandon T. Jackson, Jay Baruchel) stranded in the mountains of Vietnam shooting a war flick while various film industry dorks (Steve Coogan, Tom Cruise, Bill Hader) hover nervously off-screen. All windup and scant delivery, despite the barrage of bitterly ironic dialogue and sight gags parodying everything from trailers to Apocalypse Now. Downey’s blackface routine is a real puzzler (107 min.).
