Editorial Reviews

When long-term congressman Cam Brady (Will Ferrell) commits a major public gaffe before an upcoming election, a pair of ultra-wealthy CEOs plot to put up a rival candidate and gain influence over their North Carolina district. Their man: na‹ve Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis), director of the local Tourism Center. At first, Marty appears to be the unlikeliest possible choice but, with the help of his new benefactors' support, he soon becomes a real contender. As election day closes in, the two are locked in a dead heat, with insults quickly escalating to injury until all they care about is burying each other in this mud-slinging, back-stabbing, home-wrecking comedy from Meet the Parents director Jay Roach.

4.0 out of 5 stars AMERICA, JESUS, FREEDOM October 14, 2012
Format:DVD
Cam Brady (Will Ferrell) is a congressman who runs unopposed. After he leaves a graphic obscene phone call at a wrong number, he becomes vulnerable. The rich Motch brothers (Koch brothers) decide they can buy this election and own a congressman in the effeminate Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis). The story centers around their over the top, no holds bar campaign against each other.

The film news extras include mostly the MSNBC crowd. The humor is crude and sexual such as when Marty's wife (Sarah Baker) admits "I touch myself to Drew Carey on "The Price is Right." Okay so who doesn't.

It is a satire of the American electorate who relish slogans and sound bites over substance. It makes a statement on how our nation can be bought, but not as good as Steven Colbert. At times the film becomes too over the top and loses sight of the satire.

4.0 out of 5 stars A spot-on parody of the absurdity in U.S. politics November 18, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Although this movie is far from the apex of Will Ferrell's funniest films, it's still quite enjoyable, and it made me laugh out loud on several occasions. But be warned- this movie is extremely over the top when it comes to lewd humor. Do NOT let your young children watch this movie, or you WILL be embarrassed! For those adults who can handle such humor, strap yourselves in for a foul-mouthed ride that will take you through the very slummiest aspects of the campaigning process.

Although the story is, of course, done in parody, and everything (including the raucous dialogue) is embellished and exaggerated upon, what remains true is that the CORE of the election process remains unchanged. The mud slinging, the character assassination, and the win-at-any cost attitude are all put to examination, exposing the absurdities of each of these time honored American "traditions". In the spirit of "The Daily Show", this movie brings very important issues to light by putting them under the spotlight with a humorous approach. And as any fan of "The Daily Show" knows... you oftentimes get a closer look at the issues on that "fake show" than on the "real ones".

2.0 out of 5 stars Is it just me? November 21, 2012
By Willy
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Is it just me, or did all these slapstick movies get more vulgar since I was a kid. There were redeeming 1 lines and great laughs in movies like Wedding Crashers, Old School, Tommy Boy, etc... These new ones have gone to a new place that is less funny and just more vulgar, maybe its me.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sick jokes and old ideas November 6, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Wow! This lot really are out of ideas. If you've Ferrell films such as 'Talladega Nights' and recent Sandler films such as 'That's my boy' then this is cut and paste.

The irritable Chinese servants are straight out of 'That's my boy', while Cam Brady's wife is a bland version of the wife in 'Talladega Nights'. Much of Will Ferrell's character in the movie, Cam Brady, is carried over from previous movies. I liked Zach Galifianakis as Marty Huggins, he really played a comic humble little guy well.

Actually, the movie was going well, I mean it has a meaning to it, sort of like all these 'advisors' and corrupt businessmen chip in and the ruthlessness of 'The Campaign' tears their lives apart. Marty loses time with his family, then gets separated from his wife, while Cam goes through much the same thing. By the end of it their both worn down, with some hilarious scenes in the meantime.

But despite that promise, I couldn't help but shake that stench of reverse snobbery that infiltrates Hollywood comedies these days, kind of that all businessmen and middle class squares are, behind it all, bad or twisted people. Spray a load of dirty jokes on top and they give themselves a nice pat on the back for 'breaking barriers' or something. Comes with a guaranteed 'fanciful happy ending' like all the other movies; don't worry kids, those 'nasty' businessmen will go to jail and our comic heroes (or cardboard cutout more like it) will dramatically triumph against the odds.

2.0 out of 5 stars meh April 5, 2013
By KC
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This movie was kind of disappointing, even though Zach Galifiniakis's appearance seemed to breathe momentary life into it. Will Ferrell was predictable, and I like him, but it just kind of dragged on.

4.0 out of 5 stars Belly laughs and bruised sensibilities December 13, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I like Will Ferrell and I like Zach Galifianakis. I know that this movie is supposed to be a comedy, but what it actually becomes is a satirical documentary on the sad state of US politics. The proof of this is how closely the actions in the movie mirror what real-life candidates do in order to be elected to public office. There are a couple of places where you will laugh so hard that you will cry. But after the movie is over the after taste it leaves is the sobering realization that much of current US politics is simply theater and pageantry. It would be more funny if it wasn't so tragic.
