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.

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 ...

PopMatter's Essential Film Performances - 2013 (50 movies items)

"Pete Capaldi The cursing in In the Loop, a film about the madcap escalation of a questionable remark made by International Development Minister Simon Foster (played by Tom Hollander), is so fast-paced that it becomes awe-inspiring. In director Armando Ianucci’s universe—which includes In the Loop‘s Britcom predecessor The Thick of It and the HBO hit Veep—no one is more eloquent in their profanity than Minister of Communications Malcolm Tucker. The controlled lunacy and ribald rage which "
