WHISKEY TANGO FOXTROT (Theatrical Release USA 2016)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot—not for most adults, pushes the NC-17 rating for content—gives a realistic view into the life of a war correspondent. Tina Fey begins the story with a few quirky early scenes, delivers a scream that doesn’t quite hit the realistic bell, but after that she settles into her role and gets her points across.

Storyline

Journalist Kim Baker decides to propel her career forward by taking a war correspondent position in Afghanistan and stays longer than expected.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. The movie performs mostly as a ‘not most audience’s cup of tea’ film. It does not have wide audience range appeal.
