"In the Loop", the film

In my usual pattern of going to see almost anything playing at our local old style marqueed theater, I went to see "In the Loop" not expecting much more than a relaxing break and popcorn. While many reviews of the film were positive, they made it seem like a rehash of the entry into the Iraq war, with the kind of slapdash satire that BBC comedies tend to have.

It's much more than that. This film is really funny, in sort of a Daily Show comedy is truer than "facts" sense. Some lines of incredibly well delivered and insightful satirical dialogue had the audience laughing in moments of complete surprise.
