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.

Ruined by obcenities - In the Loop review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
06/11/2009

The opening barrage of endless obcenities really set the tone for this film, which could have been so much better. I stuck with it but, when the 'c' word was added to the mix, I lost all hope. Beware, if like me, you think that gratuitous foul language has no place in a family home, avoid this film. How the 'mighty' BBC have fallen and to think that they banned pirate radio!

Love it or hate it. - In the Loop review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
16/02/2010

My parents said "rent this film, its brilliant"... so I did and I hated it.

Some of the humour was ok but I found it pretty tedious (swearing, swearing and more swearing) and ended up giving up on it after 40 minutes and doing something more useful.

Its one of those films where you will love it or hate it. Personally I thought it was dreadful.

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).
