I espeically liked the scenes taking place at the United Nations. There ia a perception that diplomats act differently within the walls of the Organization but \"In the Loop \" shows how quickly they shed that aura of statesmanshp and return to thei\\r true nature of petty politics and boorish behavior.

Putting everything else aside, I deplore movies shot in "Cinema Verite" (hand held/shaky camera technique). Unless you bring a bottle of Excedrin and sea sickness pills with you, STAY AWAY! The other aspects of this film are as equally pathetic. Next time, add a Steadicam to your budget!

The New York Times
A sharply written, fast-talking, almost dementedly articulate satire on modern statecraft. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
Drawing upon "Wag the Dog," "Dr. Strangelove" and "This Is Spinal Tap," this sardonic tale is adapted from the critically acclaimed BBC series "The Thick of It." Full Review
Dana Stevens
Britain's diplomatic corps may be as clueless and impotent as In the Loop suggests, but British comedians are fully capable of taking over the world. Full Review
Dennis Harvey
Intelligent political satire this expertly acted is nothing to sneeze at. Full Review
