Mini Review - 'In The Loop'

Brilliant Ensemble, wonderful script, hysterical. Instead of a typical review, just look at the dialogue:
"Fuckety-bye-bye then!"

"Climbing the mountain of conflict"? You sounded like a Nazi Julie Andrews!"

"You know they're all kids in Washington? It's like Bugsy Malone, but with real guns."

"Oh, great. Meeting my constituents. It's like being Simon Cowell, only without the ability to say, "Fuck off, you're mental".

"Do I look like I've ever set foot in a stationery cupboard? I do all my shagging in five-star hotels!"

"I can't stand to see a woman bleed from the mouth. It reminds me of that Country & Western music which I cannot abide."

"Hey, listen, the war committee. What you have to do is you've got to look for the ten dullest-named committees happening out of the executive branch. Because Linton is not going to call it "The Big Horrible War Committee". He's gonna hide it behind a name like "Diverse Strategy", something so dull you're just gonna want to self-harm."

"Well, I don't want to be accused of micro-managing, but I cannot understand why "I Heart Huckabees" is on a list of DVDs considered suitable for armed-forces entertainment. That self-indulgent crap is not suitable for combat troops."

"I'm wondering where you were in committee, Simon. I called for back-up and you sat there like a dumb sack of shit. Only maybe worse, because, actually, on a molecular level, shit is probably fizzling with energy."
Grade - B+
