A group of women take on Fox News head Roger Ailes and the toxic atmosphere he presided over at the network.
User Reviews: I was hesitant at first to watch this movie. I couldn’t imagine watching anything nearly two hours long about the Fox Network. But as sometimes happens when I look at one-star reviews, the haters convinced me to give it a try. If the film enrages them so much they are driven to defend two old white guys who were fired by their own far right bosses for sexual abuses, the movie must be pretty hard hitting.

I found it to be entertaining. I gather one of the main characters isn’t a real person, but rather a sort of amalgam of many women who were sexually abused and either left Fox or were disposed of in other ways. I liked the husband who supported his famous wife so loyally, and got a kick out of the shenanigans the lesbian character had to go through to stay hidden in plain sight. I never expect a documentary with these films, so small changes don’t enrage me and provide one-star ammunition. I have to be in a certain frame of mind to watch documentaries anyway.

So if you are a gun carrying member of the far right tribe, perhaps you should skip this movie and save yourself the trouble of posting a one sentence review. I’m here for you, guys.
