Bad marketing ruined this movie. This is NOT a comedy but a true life war drama with some light moments. Well acted and deserves a wider audience.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot takes war correspondent Kim Barker's experiences in the Middle East and distills a truthful dark comedy from it. The humor derives in part from the absurdity of military bureaucracy, the clash of Western and Muslim cultures, and the chaos of life in a war zone. It also carries through in the performances - Tina Fey, Margot Robbie, Martin Freeman, Billy Bob Thornton and Alfred Molina all do well with the material. But it's not in any way a send-up. Though you may smile or laugh over the course of the film, there's also jeopardy, and heart, and an examination of the kind of tunnel vision one gets while living in that kind of "bubble". It feels truthful to what it must be like to be a journalist in a hot spot, and truthful to the realities of that part of the world itself, both in the power one would be surprised to wield and one's powerlessness in the grand scheme of things.

It's in the genre of comedy in only the first 10 minutes. After that it's a serious drama-war film. It wasn't boring but 5.5/10 will do.

The first half is hysterical, then it shifts gears dramatically in the second.

Not well balanced but entertaining.

The movie's not bad, but I would never call it a "comedy"

Between this and Warrior I've decided that every film should use a National track in the closing scene.
