A political satire about a group of skeptical American and British operatives attempting to prevent a war between two countries.
Despite being based on Armando Iannucci's TV show The Thick of It (2005), sharing the hand-held camera movements and pervasive bad language of it, and even starring many of the TV series' regular cast, only three of the characters in the film are the same as in the TV show: Malcolm ... ...
Good morning, my little chicks and cocks.
General Miller wears a Combat Infantryman Badge with 2 stars above his medal ribbons. This means he's been awarded it 3 times, in order to be eligible for this he would had to have served in combat in 3 specified wartime periods (only 4 exist so far). All 3 time CIB recipients were veterans of World War II, Korea and Vietnam. Miller is obviously far too young to be such a person, who would be long retired by the 21st century anyway.
The film's final credits roll over a long shot of the main office. At the very end, Malcolm Tucker comes out, looks at the TV and asks, "Who let this woman out with her fucking hair like this?! On national television?! Looks like she stuck her finger in a fucking electrical socket..." before walking away.
