Monty Python on Steroids. Funny, quick, cerebral, British Humor. Caustic over the top cynical hard look at politics of going to war in the Middle East. This is one of the sharpest and funniest movies since Dr. Stragelove. If you love fantastic...

Good Satire
It's a good, fresh, irreverent and biting political satire. What holds it from getting a higher rating is the overdose of profanity and sarcasm. I find it hard to believe, or would very much want to believe it isn't so, that top politicians and...

This movie is great fun. In the Loop is a companion of sorts to the delightful BBC series "The Thick of It" - well worth your time in its own right.
