The fate of the world is on the line.
The US President and the UK Prime Minister are looking to launch a war in the Middle East. The plot follows government officials and advisers in their behind-the-scenes efforts either to promote the war or prevent it. Spinal Tap meets Strangelove. A satirical demolition of Whitehall and Washington: politically astute, hilarious and terrifyingly real.

I found this film a couple weeks back, since then I've watched it 5 times and it only gets funnier each time.

I don't think the movie works that well if you have seen Veep (the US adaptation of "The Thick of It" of which the movie is a spin-off). There is a lot of swearing and politicans being doofuses but not that much behind it. It's looks and feels like a long episode of it's show.
