Loved the pro-refugee/ anti-Trump message. Loved the Bechdel test passing. Brie was great. Sam Jackson is always fun. But... did it look a little cheap to anyone else? Like the set pieces and costuming felt low-rent.

Nicholas Cage's schtick isn't fun anymore. Selma Blair and the kids were pretty good. Good concept for a film, but sloppy execution.

I really liked seeing Tina Fey in a more dramatic role. I also found the world of the film to be really interesting. I've never given the lives of war correspondents much thought before.
I like this movie, if for no other reason than that my dear friend won a This is the End movie tie-in contest where we both got to spend New Year's Eve at the Playboy Mansion.
