In the Loop is an uncommonly funny political satire that blends Dr. Strangelove with Spinal Tap for the Iraq war era. Read critic reviews

    Peter Capaldi makes this film Just as he did in the series! It's very British and I love it! Funny, entertaining and enjoyable!

    Incredible and hilarious political comedy film. The cast is grand and full of wonderful actors who give everything to the roles. The camera flips around around with a sitcom and fly on the wall approach. The film deserves a wider audience.

    The big-screen companion piece to the brilliant The Thick Of It, In The loop follows the same fuck-up miscommunications of the TV series to international waters, between a supposed soon to happen war. What follows is an f bomb ridden ride that gets absolutly nuts on it's complications, becoming virtually indecipherable and it makes sense belonging on this world of politics, scheming, alliances and whatnot. Consistently funny, this is a great way to get into the TV series, whilst mantaining a very strong individuality of it's own.

    However juvenile it may sound, most of my laughter during "In the Loop" was caused by Peter Capaldi and his profane vocabulary. Granted, the rest of the cast is quite funny and the satire in the script is so sharp and so socially, stingingly relevant that it'll send you reeling back in your chair or whatever else you might be sitting in, but it's Capaldi who really steals the show.
