A strong cast, led by Charlize Theron (as Megyn Kelly), Nicole Kidman (as Gretchen Carlson), and Margot Robbie (as a made up character), lifts up this somewhat paint by numbers account of the fall of Roger Ailes (played as an ogre by John Lithgow). Director Jay Roach, known for the "Austin Powers" series, was probably the wrong guy for this movie, as it requires a subtlety and wit that he doesn't possess. Weren't there any female directors available? Kate McKinnon makes the most of her few scenes. Russell Crowe also played Ailes in "The Loudest Voice." See you in hell jerk.
