TheWrap - Alonso Duralde
The acting is universally excellent, particularly Fey, who’s shrewdly fulfilling our expectations while playing off them.
Movie Nation - Roger Moore
Tina Fey gives her finest, funniest big screen performance by essentially doing in Whiskey Tango Foxtrot what she did so well on TV’s “30 Rock.”
Entertainment Weekly - Leah Greenblatt
What work better in the movie are mostly smaller moments: the jokes that land, the rapport between the reporters, and all the weirdly ordinary ways people manage to find a new normal, even in the most WTF circumstances.
The New Yorker - Richard Brody
The filmmakers keep to the surface of the bluntly rowdy story while conveying apolitical layers of regret and exasperation, in wanly comic and affectingly melodramatic action alike.
Arizona Republic - Bill Goodykoontz
Ficarra and Requa never quite strike a successful balance between comedy and drama, making the whole thing feel a bit off.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (2016)

In 2002, cable news producer Kim Barker decides to shake up her routine by taking a daring new assignment in Kabul, Afghanistan. Dislodged from her comfortable American lifestyle, Barker finds herself in the middle of an out-of-control war zone. Luckily, she meets Tanya Vanderpoel, a fellow journalist who takes the shell-shocked reporter under her wing. Amid the militants, warlords and nighttime partying, Barker discovers the key to becoming a successful correspondent.
