Description

Tina Fey stars in this wickedly entertaining comedy about finding yourself in the most unlikely of places. Stuck in a rut, reporter Kim Baker (Fey) decides to shake things up by leaving her desk job in New York and taking a dangerous assignment in Afghanistan. Far from home and completely out of her comfort zone, a culture-shocked Kim befriends an adventurous reporter Tanya Vanderpoel (Margot Robbie), a stern Colonel (Billy Bob Thornton), and a charming photojournalist (Martin Freeman) to help her navigate this crazy new world. Amidst the chaos, Kim discovers her true strength as she risks it all to find the next big story.

    You’ll find more interesting things to watch on the bottom of your shoe. That’s not sarcasm, I’m dead serious. Move along, but run.
  • Boring!

    I failed to see any humor in this movie, which is the genre this movie was placed. Call me weird, but this movie was meh. Acting was solid but storyline was drivel. If it weren't for $.99 cent rental, I would be disgruntled paying for this movie.
  • Great!

    Been deployed for years now and touched on a few familiar themes of life outside the snow globe. I never heard of the movie before and I'm glad I was able to see it. Glad ITunes had it so I can add it to my collection of watch again and again.
  • Missed gem of a movie

    I only got this movie I believe as part of a bundle discount several months back and hadn't watched it since. Never really heard of it, knew it wasn't a comedy despite having Tina Fey in it, and knew it was about Afghanistan. So glad I finally watched it. It is a remarkably nuanced and subtle movie about Kim Baker, a rookie war correspondent in the Afghanistan War. It is definitely not a comedy, although much of the movie you will have a smile on your face if not laughing out loud. It is also definitely not a war movie, although the reality of the war is brought home time and again throughout the movie. In some ways it is *about* Afghanistan, the place as well as the war, but told through the eyes of a foreigner. But in the end, it is a strong, human story, with wit and charm, well worth your money and time.
  • Real World - to a point

    Anyone who has deployed to a warzone will get this movie. You change and Tina Fey captures the excesses, the emotions, the dangers, and having to return to the "real" world, but always thinking of your time downrange because that's when you felt the most alive. So Five Stars for the trip down memory lane.
  • Sexed up and overall pointless. Tina fails again.

    Tina can't seem to decide if she wants to be inspiring or just show debauchery in every scenario she finds herself cast upon. The squandered potential of each role becomes more apparent every time.
  • Waaay better than I thought

    It's a dramatic action film w some comedy sprinkled throughout. Don't expect a lot of laughter, but very entertaining. Plus Margot Robbie is nice to look at:-)
  • Worth the watch
