4.5 Get IN THE LOOP tbrookey09 | 15/07/2011 | See all tbrookey09's reviews (74) This is a superb British comedy film. Based on TV comedy hit 'The Thick of It' this film combines the commendable political UK comedy with US politics, for a wider audience and subject matter (and it is excellent). It is witty, intelligent, satirical, aggressive (lots of swearing), thoroughly enjoyable and funny.The whole story revolves around government ministers discussing the possibility of future 'war' and from this it quickly arrives at the US invading, for no reason other than confusion and organisational chaos.The characters are tongue in cheek, animated but extremely likeable and inflated versions of the expected truth. There are verbal battles, power struggles and comical chaotic politics.The film stars the actors of The Thick of It such as Peter Capaldi and Chris Addison, and adds Soprano's James Gandolfini, and Mimi Kennedy. It is very Armando Iannuci in it's smart-arse comedic tone, and also cameo stars Steve Coogan.
