Tropic Thunder: Not Very Funny

So I rented Tropic Thunder, thinking I would like it. After all, it got pretty good reviews for a comedy, and I usually enjoy Ben Stiller's style of humor (Zoolander and Dodge Ball had me in stitches).

But this one just didn't do it for me...I don't know. While I have nothing against profanity or crude humor (I own the entire John Waters collection, for Chrissakes), it just felt excessive and forced here. Nearly every line in the movie was yelled, and the whole thing was just really over the top. Didn't work for me, but who knows? Humor is pretty subjective.
