Since There's Something about Mary Ben Stiller was one of my favourite actors and here's a new movie that looks really good! I watched the teaser a week ago but didn't post anything about it because it was too short. Plot is about a group of actors that are starring in a war movie and are forced to become real soldiers.
Release date: 15 August 2008
Starring: Ben Stiller, Robert Downey Jr., Jack Black
