Strong performances and a half-baked script result in a watchable yet problematic experience. I loved Charlize Theron and Nicole Kidman. Personally, I don't feel like Margot Robbie is ever given time to shine but the academy seems to disagree. If this story wasn't as naturally juicy as it is, the dirty behind the scenes of Fox News coming into the light, this wouldn't have been any good. It tries copying "The Big Short" with its witty breaking of the 4th wall but those moments didn't add any value to the story here. Overall, it's an important film because it's an important story. Though I wish it would have been given to more capable hands.
