Genre: Comedy/Drama

The United States President and the United Kingdom Prime Minister fancy a war on the Middle-East. UK Minister for International Development, Simon Foster (Hollander) makes a statement on radio that the war is 'unforeseeable'. This statement causes an uproar in countries on both sides of the Atlantic with some supporting it and some against it. The Prime Minister's foul-mouthed communications chief, Malcolm Tucker (Capaldi) lets his tongue lose on any soul who dares cross him or support Simon and his statement. New recruit Toby (Addison) is not sure on which side does he belong and tags along with Simon on a trip to the United States. Simon just doesn't know when to speak and when not to, due to which he lands up in more than one embarrassing situation. Not to mention that a garden wall in Simon's constituency is threatening to collapse and it has gained enough momentum to reach the top brass in the government. The movie is a spin-off of a famous British television series and mocks the behind-the-scenes run-up to the Iraq war. There is no roll-over-the-floor humour here but sarcastic one-liners that one may find a little hard to catch. You need to pay hard attention to the dialogues if anything should be understood of the movie and the only saving grace is Peter Capaldi and his innovative abuses. Nice, but not good enough.

Thumbs up: Peter Capaldi and Tom Hollander
Thumbs down: Lack of laughable humour

Rating: 6.9/10
