Editorial Reviews

Campaign, The (Blu-ray)

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: naïve 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, a cutthroat campaign manager and his family's political connections, he soon becomes a contender who gives the charismatic Cam plenty to worry about. 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.

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".

I almost didn't order this film after reading some of the reviews, but I did remember seeing a preview in the theatre and let's face it, Amazon had really lowered the price. Most of all, I took a leap of faith in Ferrell and Galifanakis. I am glad I did.

It's not a stretch to call this a Blades of Glory for politics. Ferrell is an over the top candidate parody and Galifanakis plays almost it almost straight with his parody as the challenger. To give it some gravitas, we have Dan Akroyd and John Lithgow as the superfunding Motch brothers, trying to buy the election. The film even has cameos by Chris Matthews, Wolf Blitzer, Morning Joe's Joe and Mika, etc. Even Piers Morgan has a bit - how did they get all of these people?

There is lots of broad comedy here and lots of sight gags. It is not sophisticated, but it is not meant to be. However, a good deal of it is plain hilarious. The scene of Will Ferrell's character trying to recite the Lord's Prayer at a campaign event with his campaign manager, Jason Sudekis, trying to prompt him by acting out the words is one of the funniest things I have seen on film in a very long time.

Probably the best thing I can say about this film is that I sure wish I could have been on-set while this was being made - everyone sure looks like they were having a good time!

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.

It's not Old School or Anchorman, but this is solidly in the upper-middle tier of Will Ferrell's cinematic output. In the words of Andy Samberg as Nicolas Cage, this has all of the classic features of a high-quality Will Ferrell film. That is, Ferrell playing a character who is completely clueless, has a heart of gold somewhere deep down there, but can't help but be continually led astray by his massive ego and his carnal desires. By re-situating classic Ferrell elements in the character of a John Edwards-esque southern politician, it stays fresh. The physical comedy and ridiculous improvised riffing are in full effect, showing some of that familiar sparkle that made Old School and Anchorman (and, to a lesser extent, Ricky Bobby and Blades of Glory) so magical. Also, did I mention that we've got Zach G essentially doing a much more likable version of the "Seth Galifianakis" alter ego from his Purple Onion stand-up special, and that alone is worth the price of admission. Finally, there's a solid supporting cast.

Just be warned: Do not attempt to run a political ad featuring Cam Brady's son. It will not end well for you or your spouse.

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.

I am normally a huge fan of Will Ferrell movies. Step Brothers is hilarious! Talladega Nights, another favorite! But this movie was STUPID! All they kept doing was insulting each other with various names for body parts. I can handle crass and vulgar language, but this was a bit much. I only laughed a handful of times. I was very disappointed and would not recommend it to anyone.
