There was a shuttle car to Bali colloction and Hardis. Staff are friendly and helpful. The room is clean and great design. I will come to stay again longer in the near future. It was a good first 2 nights to experience a traditional Balinese accommodation. The breakfast spread was ok. The staff were so gracious and kind and they go out of their way to make your stay comfortable.
There are a lot of cheap eateries outside the hotel but the one to go to is the small Chinese cum Indonesian restaurant on the right side of the hotel going out - near a money changer. The food was so good and very cheap. I recommend what we did, 2 days in a traditional Balinese hotel in Nusa Dua for the resort feel and 2 days in a modern hotel in Kuta for the party vibe.
Enjoy Bali! We will surely back with more friends with us!
Tropic Frozen Foods - Welcome
It's a very Balinese style resort located in the central area of Nusa Dua. Location is very good and there's a big supermarket that sells everything you need opposite the resort. You may even be able to see Mount Rinjani on a sunny day. However, the resort is a bit old and outdated. But this would never lower the overall scores of this resort in my heart because the customer service was awesome.
All the staffs were polite and helpful during my stay and this made me feel like home. The rooms are large, clean with big bathrooms. Cons - Non that I can think of. Indonesia Hotels. Bali Hotels.

Stayed 10 nights in May Reviewed June 10, Flaming Dragon calls during the discussion and demands a ransom for Tugg, but Les instead delivers a profanity-laden death threat. Despite the threats, Les expresses no interest in rescuing Tugg and is instead happy at the insurance payout that would happen if Tugg dies. He attempts to convince Pecker to play along by promising a Gulfstream V jet and "lots of money".
After witnessing Tugg being tortured , they plan a rescue attempt based on the film's script. Kirk impersonates a farmer towing a "captured" Jeff on the back of a water buffalo , distracting the armed guards so Alpa and Kevin can infiltrate and find the prisoners, but a combination of broken Chinese and inconsistencies in his story sets off the gang's boss. The actors, knowing their cover has been blown, begin firing, fooling gang members into surrender. Their control of the gang falls apart when Jeff grabs the leader and heads for the drugs, and the gang, realizing the guns fire blanks, recover their guns and fight back.
The four actors locate Four Leaf, Cody, and Tugg and cross a bridge rigged to explode to get to Underwood's helicopter. Tugg initially remains behind, believing Flaming Dragon to be his "family", but runs back screaming, chased by an angry horde. Four Leaf destroys the bridge, rescuing Tugg, but as the helicopter takes off, the gang boss fires a rocket-propelled grenade at the helicopter. Rick unexpectedly stumbles out of the jungle carrying a TiVo box and throws it in the path of the grenade, saving them.
The crew return to Hollywood , where footage from the hidden cameras is compiled into a feature film, Tropic Blunder , which becomes a major critical and commercial success. The film wins Tugg his first Academy Award, which Kirk presents to him at the ceremony. During the end credits, Grossman dances alone to Ludacris ' " Get Back ". Co-writer Justin Theroux appears in two brief roles as a UH-1 Huey gunner and the disc jockey from Zoolander shown in a deleted scene. Stiller developed the premise for Tropic Thunder while shooting Empire of the Sun ,  in which he played a small part.
Stiller wanted to make a film based on the actors he knew who, after taking part in boot camps to prepare for war film roles, became "self-important" and "self-involved" and appeared to believe they had been part of a real military unit. Co-writer Theroux revealed that the initial script concept was to have actors go to a mock boot camp and return with posttraumatic stress disorder. Etan Cohen created the role of Kirk Lazarus as a way of lampooning the great lengths that some method actors go to depict a role.
His makeup consisted of a prosthetic nose and bottom lip appliance, with hair pieces, and paint that would replicate African American skin tones. Downey acknowledged the potential controversy over his role: "At the end of the day, it's always about how well you commit to the character. If I didn't feel it was morally sound, or that it would be easily misinterpreted that I'm just C. Thomas Howell [in Soul Man ], I would've stayed home. But when I saw him [act] he, like, became a black man It was just good acting. It was weird on the set because he would keep going with the character.
He's a method actor. The movie is skewering actors and how they take themselves so seriously. Cruise was initially set to cameo as Stiller's character's agent, Rick Peck. Instead, Cruise suggested adding a studio head character, and the idea was incorporated into the script. Stiller and Cruise worked together to create the new character, Les Grossman, as a middle-aged businessman. The role required that Cruise don a fatsuit , large prosthetic hands, and a bald cap. In addition, Paramount Pictures refused to release promotional pictures of Cruise's character to the media.
Cruise's appearance was supposed to be a surprise for his fans worldwide. Paparazzi have ruined what should have been a fun discovery for moviegoers. Serving as a last-minute replacement, Tobey Maguire was only available to be on set for two hours to film his scenes in Satan's Alley. Following his suicide attempt in August , Wilson dropped out of the film and was replaced by Matthew McConaughey. Although Southern California and Mexico were considered for the main unit filming, the Hawaiian island of Kaua'i where Stiller has a home was selected for the majority of the shooting.
Stiller spent more than 25 hours over 6 weeks exploring the island, using all-terrain vehicles , boats, and helicopters. Tropic Thunder was the first major studio production on Kaua'i in five years. It should put Kaua'i back on the production consideration radar. The film advising company Warriors Inc. Former members of the U.

These were at times altered weekly due to the reactions of test audiences in screenings. The visual effects supervisor Michael Fink reflected on the exaggerated explosions: "We worked really hard to make the CG crashing helicopter in the hot landing sequence look real. Ben was adamant about that, but at the same time he wanted the explosion to be huge. When you see it hit the ground, it was like it was filled with gasoline! It was the same thing with Ben's sergeant character, who almost intercepts a hand grenade Now, I was in the Army for three years and no hand grenade would make an explosion like that But it was a big dramatic moment and it looks really cool All the palm trees used in the explosion were moved to the specific location after the crew determined the impact of the lighting and necessary camera angles.

All the other characters were added digitally. A trailer for the film was released in April Stiller, Downey, and Black appeared on the seventh-season finale of American Idol in a sketch as The Pips performing with Gladys Knight via archival footage. A screening was shown, but it was not chosen to compete against the other films at the festival. Between April and the film's commercial release in August , the film had over promotional screenings.
Marine Corps base in California , to present a screening to over a thousand military members and their families. The screening was on behalf of the United Service Organizations and included the actors heading to the screening by helicopter and Humvees. True Hollywood Story aired about the making of Tropic Thunder. In video games, a themed scavenger hunt was incorporated into Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 , and Stiller allowed his likeness to be used in the online Facebook application game based on the film.
As a tie-in for the film's release, Paramount announced it would market the energy drink known in the film as "Booty Sweat". Several faux websites were created for the main characters and some of their prior film roles.
A website for Simple Jack , a faux film exhibited within the film, was removed by DreamWorks on August 4, due to protests from disability advocates. In mid-July , a faux trailer for the mockumentary Rain of Madness was released.
Marketing for the faux documentary included a movie poster and an official website prior to Tropic Thunder ' s release. The mockumentary was released on the iTunes Store after the film's release and was also included on the home video release. Tropic Thunder held an early screening at the San Diego Comic-Con ,  two weeks before it officially premiered on August 11, , at the Mann Village Theatre in Westwood, California and two days before its wide release.
Members of several disability groups picketed before the premiere, protesting at the portrayal of intellectual disability shown in the film. The North American release was scheduled for July 11, , but was delayed until August 15, before being brought forward to August Studios consider the third week of August to be a weaker performing period than earlier in the summer because of students returning to school.
Reacting to Tropic Thunder' s release date, Rob Moore , vice chairman of Paramount Pictures, stated: "For a young person at the end of summer, you want to have some fun and forget about going back to school. What better than a crazy comedy? Tropic Thunder was released in the United States on DVD and Blu-ray on November 18, , three months after its release and a week after the end of its theatrical run in the U. Special features include an unrated director's cut of the film which is 12 minutes longer than the theatrical release, audio commentaries including one featuring Stiller, Downey, and Black, with Downey providing his commentary as Lincoln Osiris, a nod to a joke in the film that Lazarus never breaks character until he completes the DVD commentary , several featurettes, deleted scenes , an alternate ending, and the Rain of Madness mockumentary.
For the film's first week of release, Tropic Thunder placed on several video charts. The website's critical consensus reads, "With biting satire, plenty of subversive humor, and an unforgettable turn by Robert Downey Jr. Still, when it's funny, it's really funny. Jones of Chicago Reader stated "The rest of the movie never lives up to the hilarity of the opening, partly because the large-scale production smothers the gags but mostly because those gags are so easy to smother. The faux trailers before the film also received mixed reviews.
David Ansen of Newsweek approved of the trailers, writing " Tropic Thunder is the funniest movie of the summer—so funny, in fact, that you start laughing before the film itself has begun. Downey, Stiller, Black and Cruise were repeatedly singled out for praise by numerous critics, claiming that they "stole the show", was " I just can't imagine any circumstance under which a blackface performance would be acceptable, any more than I can imagine any circumstance under which the use of the N-word would be acceptable.
Several critics commented on the controversy over lines in the film talking about the mentally disabled. Duane Dudek of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel wrote that the film " And while it is also funny, it is without the empathy or compassion to cause us to wonder why we are laughing.
And they'll be laughing too hard to take offense. Jackson] nails Lazarus' recitation of black-uplift homilies as nothing more than the lyrics to the Jeffersons theme is funny; but the one in which Lazarus quietly explains to Speedman that his Simple Jack character failed because he made the mistake of going 'full retard'—rather than softening his character with cuteness in the manner of Forrest Gump —is so on-the-nose accurate, it takes your breath away. It played out exactly how we hoped. In October , Paramount chose to put end-of-year award push funds behind Tropic Thunder , and began advertising for Downey to receive a nomination by the Academy Awards for Best Supporting Actor.
At least one of the ads was produced by Paramount Pictures and intended for early For Your Consideration awareness for Downey's role. With the onset of the annual Hollywood film award season at the end of , Tropic Thunder began receiving nominations and awards starting with a win for "Hollywood Comedy of the Year Award" at the 12th annual Hollywood Film Festival on October 27, Tropic Thunder was criticized by the disability advocacy community.
The website for Simple Jack was withdrawn on August 4 amid several groups' concerns over its portrayal of mental retardation. We're sending a message that this hate speech is no longer acceptable. Disability advocates and others who previewed the film reported that the offensive treatment of individuals with mental disabilities was woven throughout the film's plot.
Tropic Thunder ' s score and soundtrack were released on August 5, , the week before the film's theatrical release. William Ruhlmann of allmusic gave the score a positive review, stating it is " On June 9, , it was announced that a spin-off film would be developed centering on Grossman.

DreamWorks Pictures  Paramount Pictures . United States   Germany   United Kingdom . I feel the tone of the movie is its own thing. I think there are elements of satire, but I don't think it should be categorized just as that. There are elements of parody in it, but obviously I don't think it's just that. I feel like hopefully it's its own thing, which has a lot of familiar stuff that we are playing off of.
