The film offers a fresh look at the adrenaline-laced lifestyle of war correspondents and a timely criticism of TV news. And it delivers some laughs, too.

Writer and actress tilt between insecurity and bravado, employing dry, observational humour tinged with occasional sentimental flashes only outwardly out of character.

Tina Fey is the biggest asset but even she's not sufficient to make it worth more than a marginal recommendation and a suggestion to wait until it shows up on home video.
On 2016-03-04 , ByJames Berardinelli
Tina Fey grounds the movie in something real, something urgent and human, and she nearly single-handedly saves the movie from itself. The movie itself isn't particularly serious, but she sure as hell is.

Directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa move things along fast enough to keep [the problem aspects] from sinking in too deeply, and star Tina Fey holds the spotlight with aplomb.
On 2016-03-04 , ByMatthew Lickona
The laughs are scattered, the emotions are muted, and the politics are largely toothless. Yet it still doesn't take much squinting to see the M*A*S*H that might have been.

A war-set comedy-drama as messy and ineffective as an Afghan suicide donkey.
On 2016-03-04 , BySimon Houpt
An efficient wartime dramedy about middle-aged restlessness and the bubbles we build to distract ourselves from real life.

Fey has her moments, and so does "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot." But for a performer who still deserves some big-screen respect, her war-movie comedy still feels a little small-screen, a little timid, a little safe.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot isn't a great movie, but it is something rare and important: a woman's story of self-discovery - having nothing to do with her finding a husband - that has gotten room on the big screen.
On 2016-03-04 , ByMolly Eichel
The film ... rests in a tidiness that's at odds with the messiness of the milieu. And even when we are exposed to glimpses of wartime violence and menace, it's undercut by fuzzy platitudes near the end of the film.

If this role isn't remembered as THE signature moment when we came to think of Tina Fey as an award-level dramatic actor as well as an iconic comic force, it's a substantial step in that direction.
On 2016-03-03 , ByRichard Roeper
A scattered comedy-drama with few laughs and even fewer insights.
On 2016-03-03 , ByRafer Guzman
The movie plays like a global-political farce made by people who've never left the Upper West Side.
On 2016-03-03 , ByTy Burr
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot doesn't serve [Fey] fully, but this is her best work yet on the feature screen. It's a pleasure to see her come into her own as a movie star while playing a woman who must travel far afield to discover her strength and courage.
On 2016-03-03 , ByJoe Morgenstern
I was rooting for it so hard that I told myself I liked it even as it missed one mark after another. But in the end it's just shapeless and apolitical.
On 2016-03-03 , ByDavid Edelstein
There aren't enough movies in which Tina Fey fires an AK-47 while grinning maniacally.
On 2016-03-03 , ByKyle Smith
The questions posed about journalistic ethics, personal integrity, and the problematic high of wartime reporting are all worth considering.
On 2016-03-03 , ByLeah Pickett
Tina Fey, the film's producer and star, keeps getting better and better in each of those positions. Here she hits a new high mark in both.
On 2016-03-03 , ByColin Covert
There's a sharp comedy to be made about America's misadventures in Afghanistan. This isn't it.
