War in Afghanistan may be no laughing matter but a new comedy starring Tina Fey based on the memoir of an American war reporter plays as a modern-day "Carry On Up the Khyber".The book is a hilarious romp round Afghanistan and Pakistan by a ballsy reporter dropped in at the deep end to confront war and cultural differences, party with the expat set and juggle unsatisfactory romantic entanglements.The movie focuses on Afghanistan – deleting Barker's Pakistan adventures and her account of being romantically pursued by former Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, who was re-elected two years after the book was published.In a sequence of events that would make any journalist green with envy, the film came about after Fey read a New York Times review of the book comparing Barker to "a sort of Tina Fey character".One success of the movie is the believable set.
