You probably wouldn't want to spend three hours listening to Alan Partridge's drive-time radio broadcast, but this idiotic DJ delivers a solid 90 minutes of cinematic entertainment.

This alleged satire, which received four-star treatment from other critics, left me with a ho-hum and sorry feeling that I had wasted an evening seeing it.

Shot in fly-on-the-wall style, In The Loop is as expertly and continuously funny as any comedy in years.

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.

The performances are outstanding, and there are many laugh-out-loud moments as confirmed by the fact that I laughed out loud.

Some have found In the Loop shallow for detaching its fevered gamesmanship from actual reasoning or consequences -- but isn't it rather chilling, how easy it is for the loop to form in a vacuum?

Satire hasn't felt this sharp since BrassEye.

In the Loop has some of the most colorful language you'll find in any piece of cinema, rivaling movies like Kevin Smith's Clerks. And this is a hilarious thing.

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.

The War Room has been replaced by drably decorated offices, insane army generals have been replaced by eerily sensible ones, and the man with the most power is not the POTUS but instead a PR-man with a filthy mouth.

Not since "Three Kings" has war satire felt as gloriously agitated and acerbic. Brimming with "The Office's" British-born briskness, Armando Ianucci's film doles out diabolical wit and depressing truths about corrosive careerism and boomeranging policies.

Peter Capaldi chews himself great big chunks of scenery in a role some might think over the top, but having worked with tyrants like this in the past, I thought was moderate to restrained.

The more faith you have in government, the more uncomfortable In the Loop will make you

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.

If you enjoy back-hall political wrangling mixed with British humor, you'll have a heck of a time.

Could the entrance into the Iraq War really have been as petty and misguided as this?

Who can resist using the nastieth filth in the English language to run a country?
