In this story-inside-a-story, Jack Black, Ben Stiller, and Robert Downey Jr. make fun of war, black/white racial tension, mentally-challenged people, Asian drug makers, and mostly their own profession as actors.  While making a movie about the Vietnam war, five actors accidently find themselves in conflict with a real-life army of heroin makers in Southeast Asia.  To outsmart the enemy, they must use all their skills as actors, but can they remember who they really are as human beings?  With Nick Nolte, Brandon T. Jackson, Jay Baruchel, Tom Cruise, and Danny McBride.    Rated R (107 min.) mike laib 2011.

Classroom Tips:

1. Preview both the movie and its lesson. Lesson and movie are in the same sequence.
2. Within the lesson, decide which quotes, questions, and vocabulary to focus on. Highlight or cut-and-paste content you plan to use.
3. Estimate how you'll use available time for both watching and discussing the movie.
4. Remember: Most questions on the lesson are easy for a native speaker of English to answer, so the movie itself is the answer key.
5. Assessments are at http://www.moviesgrowenglish.com/Assessments.html.
