Tina Fey strikes again

 

Comedianne and actress Tina Fey strikes again with a dramedy called, “Whiskey Tango Fox Trot.” Followed by a full cast of talent, Margot Robbie, Martin Freeman, Alfred Molina and Billy Bob Thornton accompany Fey through this war movie. Based on the book written by Kim Barker, “The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days in Afghanistan and Pakistan.” The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan drew in many American reporters. Fey being single and childless makes a perfect candidate and accepts the challenge, taking the role of a war correspondent. Putting her usual corky and hilarious character aside, (though not entirely), Fey delivers a dramatic performance as a hardworking careerist who puts her life on hold to travel to Afghanistan and surround herself in the war zone. Trying something new, Fey gets in touch with her inner adventure junkie and emerges herself into the battlefield avoiding gun shots while getting a shot for her current story. Adjusting her current situation, Fey does a believable job playing as Barker and bringing the actual events back to life. Though this film still involves some comedic moments, Fey seems to never lose her focus in keeping her role as a workaholic. Also, mixing her comedy background with the drama events involving the soldiers and war made this film humorous yet believable. Although Fey is known for giving her audience laughter, she managed to make this film emotional and heartfelt too.
