Tropic Thunder movie

I heard that Tropic Thunder was the number one movied opening last week, knocking Dark Knight out of the top spot after several weeks. I'm surprised that I've heard little buzz positive or negative about Robert Downey Jr's character's portrayal of an African American in the movie-within-the-movie. I haven't seen it, but the pics of Downey are a convincing make-up job--no black face minstrelry, anyway. Still a risky proposition, though...

Anybody seen it? What'd you think of the Downey character?
