Brilliant film and, although different, excellent book.

These explorations of the personal and political complexities of Afghanistan and Pakistan were funny and illuminating. The movie took a number of liberties but I enjoyed it as much as the book.

The author was able to maintain political neutrality which I would hope for in a journalist while illustrating the failure of local leaders and the international community in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

She also shows her personal growth in light of friendship and dating challenges in a war zone and vastly different culture.

I liked it for these reasons and for the clarity of her writing style

Not enjoyable at all. It played like a documentary and not a very good one. So disappointing as the "jacket" of the dvd pumped it up as "the best" and a comedy. I don't remember laughing at anything in this movie, much less smiling. Very disappointing.

Yet another mindless, witless, know-nothing yahoo of an American newsy who still hasn't - - and probably never will - - grasp the underlying agenda of American super-imperialism. [She actually believes America is trying to // get it right \\ - - what a hopeless fool!]
