"In the Loop"

I'm sorry for 2 movie posts in a row, but I saw a wonderful little film last night. I had never even heard of "In the Loop" until the Oscar nominations came out. It was nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay this year which is an important category for me since I am all about the plot and story line. It's a terrific black comedy about the workings/dealings of the governments in London and Washington. There were several times during the movie where I literally lol'd. I can best describe it as "The West Wing" meets the British version of "The Office." The dialogue is quick and witty. If you enjoy "The Office," either the British or American version, you will probably dig this film.
