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".

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.

Parental Guide: F-bombs, sex, brief nudity (Amelia Jackson-Gray)

I'm not sure what some people are expecting when they watch a movie like this. It's Will Ferrell, first of all...clue # 1. And the previews are enough to tell you that there is a certain mood required to watch a movie like this. It's an incredibly silly comedy, not a smart comedy, you don't have to be thinker, there is no reading between the lines. We were actually pleasantly surprised. I don't generally like Zach G. I don't like any of the movies he did, but by far, his character was one of the funniest characters ever in this. I absolutely loved him. The next day my husband and i rewound to the early part of the movie when he's talking to his dad in the boat. The dialogue was brilliant. This was not my favorite Will F. role, a bit more vulgar for our taste, but all in all, a fun saturday night, pizza, beer kinda movie...i guess we were not expecting much and that is what made it funny. It was also free...that made it hilarious. But really, Zach G' character was laugh out loud funny. If its on sale or free, worth watching for sure.

Started off funny and tapered off at the end. If te laughs kept coming then maybe the rating would be higher but it was just "eh".

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.

I appreciate the commentary and caricature of American politics in this movie, but it must be faced with intelligence that there is a sort of movie that leaves the viewing audience a little dumber than they were. Many it's because I'm 30, and this movie is made for 20. I appreciate a younger viewing audience, but garbage in, garbage out. This movie did make me see the masochism of the common American, who subconsciously enjoys being constantly lied to by powerful people who seem nice. Where has all our morality gone. I am feeling like America is politically diseased, and a very adolescent culture where huge money goes into lies (politically), and the dumbest entertainment (hollywood) in the world. I think this movie is a brain cell killer, and dumbs the audience. It is not a great comedy, even though there are some moments where I actually laughed. I love the two main actors, but I have lost all trust for Gary Sanchez Productions. I am tired of world that gets dumber everyday, so thank you Campaign for making me see the worst of it.

Ok, I'm not a Will Ferrell fan because his movies are either great or they stink up the room like a dead fish. This movie however is not the dead fish stinker type; Ferrell is actually funny and the guy from the Hangover Movies also brings his "A" game to this funny movie. I would recommend this movie if you like any of the actors and like political humor.

Really fun movie that might be slightly more mature, but still good fun. It follows the same formula as the movie Talladega Nights, so if you did not like that film, you will not like this one, but if you did, and you like politics, then definately worth seeing. Only disadvantage is that you can't rent it as it would be much better as a rental than a purchase.
