It's obvious based on some of the reviews that some people missed the point altogether of this film. Stating that this film is making fun of the Vietnam War shows a level of complete ignorance that's beyond belief. The Vietnam War is just a minor part of what this film is about. Vietnam war movies have become so cliche filled and pretensious over the years that they deserve to be made fun of. If you're at all familiar with the making of films like Apocalypse Now (which is based on a book Hearts of Darkness-that had nothing at all to do with the Vietnam War), Full Metal Jacket or Platoon (which merges together numerous events in an unrealistic way) you know exactly what I'm talking about.

There's a certain mentality in Hollywood that's perfectly captured in this movie. This film is making fun of the mindset of certain filmmakers & actors. A director making his first large budget studio film is bullied by the Producer in charage & the various actors all have their own selfish reasons for appearing occur on a regular basis in Hollywood. This film succeed as a comedy due to the fact it holds nothing back. It's willing to point out & make fun of the egotistical nature of big budget Hollywood. The pure insanity shown isn't that far from the truth.

Some people complain that the language and content is too mature and fails to capture the feel of the classic comedies. It's an R rated movie people. Face the reality that the majority of the so-called classic comedies of the past wouldn't stand a chance today and seem really dumb. Also keep in mind that capturing the feel of those types of films wasn't the point of the filmmakers.
