"Don't expect deep political drama or anything based on the truth. It has some witty lines in it but it is total American feel-good mush. Wilson, his CIA friend and the rest of his gang being portrayed as some good hearted people helping out the Afghans. The Russians as total evil. The funniest thing about this film is that it claims Charlie Wilson and his lover basically defeated the Soviets in Afghanistan. And that American interference in the rest of the world is about good heart but ignorance rather than motivated by money and imperialism."
