If there's one thing that's ripe for satire, it's the possibility that occasionally, just occasionally, actors can take themselves a little too seriously.

And on the back of this premise came the hugely successful Tropic Thunder; written, produced, directed by, and starring Ben Stiller, alongside Robert Downey Jr and Jack Black, it told the story of a group of actors coming together to make a fictional war film, which soon becomes a little more real than they had anticipated. It mercilessly lampooned many aspects of the acting community, and quickly garnered great reviews from the critics across the board.

See how much you remember from this 2008 classic by taking our quiz.
