Cape Argus / The Star
Theresa Smith quote iconFey drops laughs, opts for adrenalin in Afghanistan.

ScreenIt
Jim Judy quote iconThere'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 quote icon 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.
