This 'Fifties Fugitive' movie,a clever pastiche of monochrome British B films,opens with the police arriving to arrest prime minister Tony Blair for murder - well,he did allow himself to be abducted by a thug called George Bush and collude in murdering a bunch of Afghans. Aided by Barbara Windsor Blair goes on the run but none of the peers he created will give him sanctuary,Gordon Brown just wants to kill him and 'Squealer' Mandelson is no help either. Apart from trying to flog his book all he does is incriminate Blair in the deaths of John Smith and Robin Cook. After he has pushed a tramp off a train and been grassed up by Carol Caplan Blair ends up at the Gothic mansion of faded Southern Belle Margaret Thatcher and in her bed. A climax at the Chilton Theatre in the manner of 'The Thirty-Nine Steps' will lead to an end title revealing the fates of those concerned. Written by don @ minifie-1

Incredibly poor
15 October 2011 | by (Under your bed) – See all my reviews

Unutterably unfunny. Such a shame as this was a brilliantly-shot film with excellent work from the actors and actresses. All blame lies with the writers, who have failed on just about every level to produce anything worth watching. Not one laugh for the whole running time, and a script which jumps from style to style (Ealing comedy, attempted political satire, various pastiches of old films, etc.) without ever finding its bearings. This was a Comic Strip presentation - amazing to think this was the bunch who revolutionised comedy in the 80s. Everything in this film points towards the need for a new wave of comedians to come along and sweep this tired, uninspired, bloated cack away for good. Looking for jokes in "The Hunt For Tony Blair" produced less results than the hunt for Iraqi WMDs.
