Based on a true story (and book: “The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days in Afghanistan and Pakistan”) journalist, Kim Baker shares her experiences of seeing war up close and personal in Afghanistan. It was good to see Tina Fey in a drama type role (yet there’s lots of humor amongst the cast) and she did well.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler in a movie together can only mean a laugh out loud movie going experience. Both of them are favorite comedians of mine so overall I enjoyed the movie. Don’t look for storyline development…it’s a comedy.
Comedy drama and good acting are all exhibited in this film. A great ensemble cast of actors and a good storyline make for a good movie going experience. I really enjoyed this movie and the complexities (reminded me a lot of ‘The Family Stone’) and learning about being Jewish (rituals after someone passes).
