Plot: Inept officials and news spinners work to prevent a world war.
I don't know the BBC show (The Thick of It) this spins off from, but that didn't affect my enjoyment of it. There's so much dark hilarity packed into this movie and its characters, that I almost feel like watching it again. There's a bleak breeziness that put a frightened smile on my face.
My favorite comedies, I think, are ones that manage to be so smart and completely juvenile at the same time. This combination of verbal slapstick and biting satire, such great lines delivered by a great ensemble cast, really hit the spot.
