Synopsis:
Present day London. Socially inept, exceptionally dull Minister Of International Development, Simon Foster, has caused outrage amongst his superiors and sparked a media-frenzy by accidentally mentioning a possible attack on the Middle East. Rabid, ruthless, profane and relentless Director Of Communications, Malcolm Tucker, has been sent in to pull the right strings, immediately dispatching Foster on a "fact finding" trip to Washington. Increasingly out of his depth, Simon Foster suddenly finds himself thrown into an anarchic world of abusive peaceniks, unhinged warmongers, infantile bureaucrats of Northampton to Washington’s West Wing, rest assured it can only get worse.

Funny - but not as funny as it thinks it is - In the Loop review by Tim from London

Spoiler Alert
30/01/2010

A great script and some wonderful lines. It is cetainly worth watching for the Alastair Campbell character alone. The big weakness is that unfortunately he is overused and consequently the other characters feel underdeveloped and one dimentional. The jokes fly think and fast - sometimes they hit but occasionally they miss (the line about driving a person to assisted euthanasia for instance was poorly judged in light of the Dr David Kelly affair).

An extreme case of coprolalia - In the Loop review by DJ

Spoiler Alert
01/10/2019

l believe it is all to do with one's upbringing, but having recently viewed the beginning of this film, I find it synonymous with the present day establishment in the House of Commons.  In this respect, I'm believing that this film was written and produced by an 'insider', who knew more than most about those involved in politics.  Were it to have been considered a lampooning of the political establishment in the past, today it is pretty close to being a documentary!  A personal opinion, of course.

The language is totally unacceptable, unnecessary and unworthy of the name entertainment, however, there is a group of the younger set who will doubtless enjoy the coprolalia, and it may even go unnoticed by those suffering from the same syndrome.

Five minutes into the film, including the titles, it was ejected.  I think that says it all.
