Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is the Tina Fey movie where she plays a novice reporter sent to Afghanistan. Martin Freeman also stars as a semi-douchey Scottish photographer, Margot Robbie as a Lara Logan type, Billy Bob Thornton as a military dude, Josh Charles as Tina Fey’s boyfriend back home, and Alfred Molina as an Afghan politician.
It actually isn’t as much of a comedy as I thought it would be. It has plenty of jokes in the early part, but the last 45 minutes or so has very few. It gets all devoid of humor, alternating between political and human drama. The funny parts were moderately funny, the rest was ok. Passable but not highly recommended.
