Tropic Thunder

Stupidity: After Alpa Chino and Lazarus force the Flaming Dragon goons to the ground, neither man bothers to collect the goons' AK-47's which are loaded with real bullets (and lying very close to the goons themselves) while Chino and Lazarus' weapons only have blanks.

Stupidity: During the gun battles with the "Tropic Thunder" actors, not one of the Flaming Dragon soldiers notice there is something strange about how the actors are firing their weapons (i.e, in the air, over the heads of the Flaming Dragons, etc.) or that there is no damage inflicted when the actors are shooting at or near objects in the area. Those two factors alone would tip off the Flaming Dragons that blanks were being used in the weapons of the actors.

Continuity mistake: When Speedman is by himself in the rain, he puts down the iPod and picks up the Chapstick with the white cap on. The next shot, the cap is off. (00:49:00)

Les Grossman: First, take a big step back... And literally, FUCK YOUR OWN FACE! I don't know what kind of pan-pacific bullshit power play you're trying to pull here, but Asia Jack is my territory. So whatever you're thinking, you'd better think again! Otherwise I'm gonna have to head down there and I will rain down in a Godly fucking firestorm upon you! You're gonna have to call the fucking United Nations and get a fucking binding resolution to keep me from fucking destroying you. I'm talking about a scorched earth, motherfucker! I will massacre you! I WILL FUCK YOU UP!

Trivia: In the movie, Robert Downey Jr.'s character of Kirk Lazarus, who is in character as Lincoln Osiris, says he won't drop character until after the DVD commentary. In the DVD commentary Robert Downey Jr. actually stays in character as Lincoln Osiris until the scene where Kirk Lazarus also drops the character. At this point in the commentary, Downey Jr. adopts Lazarus' "real" Australian accent and stays in that character.
