Comedy gold!

This is absolute comic genius and has to be one of the most hilarious British films in years. The script has to be one of the funniest in cinema you're ever likely to see and hear and easily containing some of the most quotable lines too.

In The Loop's attention to detail is really the driving force in the film. Every segment about the upcoming war is spoken about and brilliantly wri... read more

A richly comic example of what can be done when portraying the ludicrous tribalism and confusion that is the hallmark of modern politics.

The core topic was a little late to the table since the invasion it alludes to had already taken place and that topic was so complicated that it could barely be fit into a series of films let alone one.

A great movie

I heard many good things about this movie so I was really curious about it but, honestly, I didn't expect it to be that good. Indeed, it is the most hilarious movie I have seen in years, it is that good. I'm usually really critical about comedies but this one was just a real riot, especially the first 30 minutes. There are some familiar faces (Tom Hollander, James Gandolfini, Steve Coogan) and som... read more

Description: IN THE LOOP is a smart new comedy and Sundance Film Festival hit from the acclaimed team behind the award-winning BBC TV comedy series THICK OF IT. The film is drawing instant comparisons to great political and absurdist comedies like DR. STRANGELOVE, WAG THE DOG, THANK YOU FOR SMOKING and MONTY PYTHON. With razor-sharp, truly laugh-out-loud dialogue the film pokes fun at the absurdity and ineptitude of our highest leaders. With everyone looking out for number one, and the fate of the free world at stake (but apparently incidental), the hilarious ensemble cast of characters bumbles its way through Machiavellian political dealing ...

Hilarious gold! Strictly for adults (good taste)

“'In The Loop' is one of the most adult movies rated 15 and it should be rated 15. It's got tons of adult content and is full of non-stop laughter, hilarious dialogue and pop culture references! It comes up with genius jokes (unlike those lame jokes with farting and someone losing their pants) including the whole fax machine scene and the dialogue is full of golden showcase jokes! Hilarious gold! Strictly for adults with good taste only!” read more

“A richly comic example of what can be done when portraying the ludicrous tribalism and confusion that is the hallmark of modern politics.

The core topic was a little late to the table since the invasion it alludes to had already taken place and that topic was so complicated that it could barely be fit into a series of films let alone one.

Iceman, the alcoholic source for the case for war was an unsubtle nod to the (now infamous) source Curveball who provided the wafer thin ice on which the Iraq invasion was floated. There are enough echoes of the Iraq debacle to hint at it but this is more generic and perhaps will seem prescient in the future when the next inevitable land-grab is launched by Washington.

A very funny film, with savage biting wit and painfully a” read more

Top 10 best movies 2009 (17 movies items)

" Note : It is the most hilarious movie I have seen in years, it is that good. I'm usually really critical about comedies but this one was just a real riot, especially the first 30 minutes. It is very smart, very witty and so f*cking funny. Furthermore, I'm a huge fan of movies dealing with politics and it must be the best political satire I have ever seen. It is absolutely and definitely worth a look, especially if you like some good old British humor. "
