Ben Stiller, Robert Downey Jr and Jack Black star as three has-beens who think they're filming a Vietnam war epic in the jungle, unaware that the people who keep shooting at them aren't actors playing the Viet Cong, they're genuine trigger-happy guerrillas.

"Ben Stiller's performance is easily the weakest element: like his 'Zoolander' character, he has a handful of exaggerated expressions and cycles through them on cue. But it's easy to forgive, given how thoroughly enjoyable 'Tropic Thunder' is on virtually every other count." - Tasha Robinson, www.avclub.com

Michel Gondry's potty comedy stars Jack Black and Mos Def as two idiotic friends who accidentally erase every tape in Danny Glover's inner city video store, and try to cover their tracks by shooting their own hilariously shambolic remakes of 'Ghostbusters', 'King Kong', 'The Lion King' etc.

The big concept behind Michel Gondry's new film Be Kind Rewind is the remaking of classic movies on a shoestring budget. Starring Jack Black and Mos Def, the movie had its world premiere at the Sundance festival this week. Now its French director wants everyone to take their camcorders and remake classic films using household items as props, with friends and non-actors as cast and crew, and post the results on the internet.

Q: I bought a mobile phone online from Carphone Warehouse in the spring. A monthly direct debit was set up and the first payment of £32 taken from my account. But Carphone Warehouse claimed this payment was rejected and required me to pay it again - which I did. When I spoke to my bank, Barclays, it insisted the sum had been paid. Each says the other has the money. Who has?

The final 20-point margin gave an accurate reading of a pulsating game which a near-capacity crowd saw turned into an almost 88-minute festival of entertainment, but the 500 or so faithful fans who had come to support the men from the Madejski Stadium could cheer a side going home with heads held high.
