Often Off Topic Allie Adkins80 - Mismarketed as a comedy, this is more a drama than anything else, but a good one at that

Minnesota Man75 - Fey can do it all...even drama.

Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine75 - Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is funny, the kind of comedy I like, where the tone is laced with the humor of the situation, rather than situational comedy. I didn't see the Tina Fey/Amy Poehler Christmas release Sisters; that to me looks like something I'd only watch on a Saturday at midnight on VH1, while flicking to reruns of Castle on the commercials. But I did see Admission (click for T&T post) and This is Where I Leave You (click for T&T post) and although neither of those movies did well at the box office, what they have in common with "WTF" is the fact that Tina Fey makes a very likable protagonist.

Sober Film Critic James Brown70 - Oscillating between lighthearted comedy and intense drama, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot may just offer a worthwhile change in pace for Fey on the big screen.
