"To all the idiots taking this seriously; get a sense of humour. The writers did not intend to make mockery of the events of the last Gulf War OR in fact glamorise and humourise 'desk murderers'. If you actually watch the film it shows how f*cking shambolic the whole system is and how funny it can be when it all goes tits up.
You don't have to find it funny or even like it, just don't bring the stale odour of PC into this intentionally frank, fantastically written and acted piece of UK gold.
So f*ck off you lot; you obviously missed the complex power-plays, spin cycles and buck passing. You obviously had a nap very time Malcolm Tucker swept on screen and delivered some of the funniest lines in recent British comedy. and you must have nipped off for a piss when Malcolm and cohort Jamie were hilariously careening around Washington trying to mop up the mess. I bet you only like films where ever word has been carefully placed to inform the narrative and each scene is a piece of art in it's own right; essentially boring shit."
