In the LoopDVD - 2010
"The language is brilliant, and the laugh lines come so quickly that you'd probably have to watch the movie twice to get them all."--San Francisco Chronicle
"A very effective, verbally blood-stained portrait of how a little brazen scheming on one side, coupled with selfishness and failure of nerve on the other, can actually change the world."--Los Angeles Times
"...highly disciplined inquiry into a very serious subject, it is also, line by filthy line, scene by chaotic scene, by far the funniest big-screen satire in recent memory."--A.O. Scott, New York Times
The British Prime Minister and the President of the United States think that the best thing for both countries would be a war against the Middle East, and now it's up to the military generals and PR people on both sides of the Atlantic to stop this before it escalates out of control.

SIMON: What the f***, Malcolm. This is all going to spin along from here and we have a vote and we go to war. We fight people, and kill them, and our kids get killed, and that's exactly the sort of thing I didn't want to do when I went into politics. That's the opposite of what I want to be doing. --- MALCOLM: That's why you've got to stay in government. In here you can influence things, delay things. Out there you're just another mad shouty f**ker people don't want to make eye-contact with. Remember Mary? She took a stand over Health. Everyone decided she was mental.
MALCOLM: You might pull this kind of stunt on some young wank fresh up from Oklahoma, happy to be getting his hookers paid for by tobacco lobbyists, but not me. --- LINTON: What seems to be the problem? --- MALCOLM: I've just had a briefing from a 9-year-old finalist in Americas got talent. I think he may have been a ventriloquist. Or possibly the fxxkxxx dummie. --- LINTON: AJ? He is one of my top guys. Stanton College Prep, Harvard...he's smart and he's great at his job ...
GENERAL MILLER: See, this is the problem with civilians wanting to go to war. When you've been there you don't want to go back unless you absolutely have to. It's like France.--- TOBY: Though -- maybe? What's brave about doing
the `right thing'? Nothing. Doing the
wrong thing is braver. In a way. I mean, you know, wars sometimes work. The War of Independence, that worked. For the Americans. Second World War. That was a good idea. I mean not a good idea but ... --- SIMON: I know what you mean. And the Crimean War -- we got nurses out of that.
