Best film so far this century
23 October 2011 | by freya-pickardSee all my reviews

Anyone who didn't find this film funny obviously has a sense of humour failure or is still in love with Blair the liar. If you don't get satire, don't bother watching it, you won't get it. However, if you loathe politicians and love 50s style films, this is one for you. Brilliant writing and acting, beautifully shot and really, Blair etc deserve everything this film throws at them. Really looking forward to the DVD coming out as this is one film I could re-watch, over and over and never get tired of it. 10/10 for laughter and irony and well done Stephen Mangan for being utterly despicable as the main character! More please from Comic Strip!
