FILMINK (Australia)

It's strained, flat, laboured, repetitive, self-satisfied, largely unfunny, and has the drab and tacky look of a telemovie. Dr. Strangelove it ain't.

It's such a shame because here is a film with the potential of being really good if it was decently made.

Financial Times

This - Iannucci's large-screen lampoon on the corridors of power and PR - is a rabbit version of The Thick of It. It scurries about for two hours with bared but biteless teeth.

SSG Syndicate

While the cynical concept is amusing, the actors' accents are often so undecipherable that much of the dialogue emerges as unintelligible unless you're attuned to Brit-speak - and profanity reigns.

In the Loop is a confusingly plotted satire -- plan on being out of the loop -- that starts off at such a frantic pace and at so high a pitch that it really doesn't have anywhere to go.

If you only watch a scene or two on the internet, it's hilarious. Watch it all and it's a little tiresome and unconvincing.

British humor that did not travel all that well across the Atlantic.

By the end of the film, you just want to get away from these people.

Instead of inspiring geniuses, Iraq war backlash has only resulted in snarky self-righteousness that -- from Charlie Wilson's War and now British import In the Loop -- has demonstrated the low ebb of modern comedy.

Louis Proyect

A complete mystery. How in the world did this lame British comedy bamboozle so many critics? It amounts to "Yes, Minister" with four letter words. You would be better off watching paint dry.

Avoid the latest Apatow/Rogen template trash and give this a go, I promise you will not be disappointed.

There's only so much wittiness and quips we can watch before we get irritated at the fact that not much actually happens.

Simon Miraudo

The War Room has been replaced by drably decorated offices, insane army generals have been replaced by eerily sensible ones, and the man with the most power is not the POTUS but instead a PR-man with a filthy mouth.

Cinema Autopsy

In the Loop is political satire at its best, leaving you giggling at the one-liners yet feeling complete despair about the political process.

Accessible even for those not interested in politics, In The Loop is easily the funniest film of the year so far, and to boot, one of the most intelligent.

A venomous and incisive cinema exposť and it builds a relentless head of comic steam that never subsides.

The film plays as if flaming chunks of The Office crash-landed simultaneously onto the sets of Yes, Minister and The West Wing.

The plot isn't the most important part of this flick. It's about the characters and watching them screw up in the most stunning ways... It's the comedy of failure.

If you can get past its relentless quality, In the Loop is a blisteringly funny skewering of the venal side of politics.
