What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Theresa Smith Fey drops laughs, opts for adrenalin in Afghanistan.
Laetitia Pople Jy lag, maar die ongemak by sit.
Todd McCarthy Humour on the frontlines.
Jim Judy There's a lot at play in the film, but I just didn't find the various elements and tones mixing together into a stellar whole. It's easy enough to watch, but after this and the earlier Bill Murray flick (that bombed horribly), perhaps it's time to stop trying to place so many genres into an Afghan setting and instead stick with just one.
Tomatometer While WTF is far from FUBAR, Tina Fey and Martin Freeman are just barely enough to overcome the picture's glib predictability and limited worldview.

Staff evaluation Compelling but uneven dramedy has swearing, drinking, more.
