Notes: 
Storyline Heading
A group of women decide to take on Fox News head Roger Ailes and the toxic atmosphere he presided over the network.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - This is a fact-based drama aimed at adult moviegoers, and constant language and constant discussion of sexual harassment issues make the film not for kids. Fans of Charlize Theron, Nicole Kidman, Margot Robbie, and John Lithgow will have much to enjoy here but other recognizable faces such as Kate McKinnon and Allison Janney have much smaller roles.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good It's all weighty, serious material with huge stakes—emotionally, culturally and financially. But Roach, working from a script by Charles Randolph, finds a tricky balance of portraying these events with a sprightly tone while crafting a steadily building tension. "Bombshell" is both light on its feet and a punch in the gut.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Very Good Three extraordinary actors, directed with artful purpose by Jay Roach (HBO's Recount, Game Change and All the Way) from a slashing script by Charles Randolph (The Big Short), make Bombshell an explosive piece of entertainment that also means to make a difference. Listen up.

Rex Reed Full Review
Good ...the script by Charles Randolph is dry as a bone and Jay Roach's direction goes out of its way not to make anyone at what remains of Fox News mad. The result seems to tiptoe around the even juicier chance to tell the dirty behind the scenes stories that could have made this story a real bombshell indeed.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Below Average The film is too irreverent in tone and narrow in scope... ...mostly feels insular, remote, and superficial. It would be nice if for once an accessible mainstream film took on the institutional powers that detrimentally shape our world with anger and incisiveness rather than a bemused concern.
