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 and bickering, bullying interns. From the back gardens of Northampton to Washington's West Wing, rest assured it can only get worse.

Directed by Armando Iannucci, the writer/producer of such comedy classics as "The Day Today", "I'm Alan Partridge" and "The Thick Of It", "In The Loop" is an absolutely hilarious, instantly quotable modern satire on military madness and the pursuit of power.

From Armando Iannucci, the comic-genius behind The Day Today, I'm Alan Partridge and the BAFTA award-winning The Thick Of It and starring Tom Hollander, James Gandolfini, Peter Capaldi and Steve Coogan, comes a hilarious and biting satire on British-US relations and the lunacy of War.


Great film at a good price. The scene in which Malcolm Tucker vs Tony Soprano is just brilliant.

"In England we have a saying for a situation such as this; which is that it's difficult, difficult, lemon difficult."

Hilarious every time I watch it!
