WHISKEY TANGO FOXTROT has a cast of good actors having a good time. But the script is too messy and uneventful for the movie as a whole to be considered a good time. Also, for a movie billed as a comedy it is surprisingly grim and serious at times.

In an effort to escape her ho-hum life, a female report takes a job war reporting in Afghanistan. While she's there, she learns a few things about the joys of life, the sorrows of the journey, and how people help along the way. On the positive end, the theme isn't preachy. There's a lot of moments in the film that are funny, but it doesn't take away from the serious aspects of it. The chemistry between the characters are great, leading to more wonderful moments. However, the climax seemed rushed and the ending left a little more to be desired. Good film for a fun movie night, but may not be worth a second viewing.

Pretty entertaining and gratifyingly non-preachy for a war movie, but not as funny or engaging as I had hoped it would be. Also, totally unafraid to truck in offensive and outdated arab stereotypes.

On the Front-Lines

'Whiskey Tango Foxtrot' is a biographical piece based on one woman's on-site reporting from the beginnings of the Iraq war. This drama/comedy handles each of those facets in equal measure. The comedy comes from this woman's personality and the many relationships between all of the characters, while the drama never loses it's grasp on the realistic consequences of war. The balance is so strong that it will switch between the two sides in a single scene with ease, giving us more to be invested. I had some genuine good laughs and felt some emotional involvement. Tina Fey gives an engaging lead performance that might be her best yet. She even elevates everyone else around her. That is, except for the individuals that stick out from the rest. A few characters seem a bit forced in the w...
