As a black comedy pilot for a sitcom this film has potential. As a chunk of so-called 'reality,' however, this film is abysmal. Having been there and done that in Bosnia and good ol' Kandy-Har-Har, let me tell you this film is an 'entertainment' full of stereotypes about the locals, the realities of war and journos. The silly plot concerns the one true-blue Canadian or American reporter(it's never quite clear) and his high-ass opium smoking sidekick returning to the front after his expose of a giant cover-up in Afghanistan gets spiked by his loathsome editor. Their search for truth involves firefights, nonstop Vietnam-style dope parties with the military, and--what a surprise!-- a kidnapping by suitably clownish, corrupt and ignorant Afghans and lots of war-is-hell-but-the-camraderie-is-great tropes. A nice cameo from Lewis Black, who never fails to crack me up, but the truth is, unless Canadians move to the U.S.. like Judd Apatow and his Vancouver mafia, Canadians just don't 'get' Americans. Admittedly, I'm a little too biassed to lighten up on this fairly funny bit of Canuck fluff, but, If you just want a shoot-'em-up entertainment, be my guest!
