C'EST MON TYPE DE COMÉDIE!!! I would literally take every single screenshot of the brilliantly written lines; most of which were said by Malcolm Tucker aka my new spirit fucking animal. And I was wondering whether the series, The Thick of It, whose existence I've just found out from this effing movie, is as entertaining as this?? I sodding love Capaldi's Scottish accent
Within your 'purview'? Where do you think you are, some fucking regency costume drama? This is a government department, not some fucking Jane fucking Austen novel! Allow me to pop a jaunty little bonnet on your purview and ram it up your shitter with a lubricated horse cock!
this film is hilarious, the performances are witty and so full of one liners. the plot is pretty good too, and always throws a left hook here and there. the one minor complaint is that technically for a film sometimes it does lack something. the script more than makes up for it. and for a big fan of the tv show this more than delivers adapting from small to large screen effectively. plus gina mckee.
Biting satire about the people working for government, the clueless, the clumsy, the resourceful, the ass kisser, the hateful, they're all here with their cards on the table trying to decide whether or not their country should go to war just for the sake of it. Peter Capaldi's colourful way of adressing everyone and his derogatory nicknames taken from movies are a riot.
Guess what? People in politics are bottom-feeding scumbags who say "fuck" a lot. Amusing satire, but not as sharp as it thinks it is. A little too Ricky Gervais for its own good. DR. STRANGELOVE it ain't.
Had to watch it multiple times to get all of what was going on with the plot but it was a pleasure to do so. I would have watch 10 more hours of Malcolm Tucker swearing. Luckily I found "The Thick Of It" and got my wish. And how hard was it to find both of these? "Difficult Difficult Lemon Difficult".
