War Machine vs. War Horse: Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (Good Morning, Vietnam vs. Wag the Dog)

On this episode we attempt to comedically cover films that comedically cover wars. In GOOD MORNING, VIETNAM Robin Williams tries to balance entertainment with truth in his broadcasts to men serving their country in a divisive war. And in WAG THE DOG Robert De Niro and Anne Heche outsource the creation of a fake war to a Hollywood producer played by Dustin Hoffman in an attempt to distract from a sex scandal involving the President during his reelection campaign. This double feature has been inspired by the new film starring Tina Fey: WHISKEY TANGO FOXTROT.
