I was worried that this would not be all that funny, but it really was. Lots of laughs. You won't regret spending your money on seeing this.

Big disappointment. The movie has a good premise, but plot development is overshadowed by cursing and sexual references. I left the movie part way through it.

Not a great movie, but good fun. It is exactly what one would expect with the cast, and they did pull it off with only a few slow spots. It does make for some good satire regarding the sad state of big money politics. Not for kids.

It'd be hard not to get some laughs out of spoofing a modern political campaign, and this movie does...get some laughs, I mean. But, when you get right down to it, the current national presidential campaign and, even more, the Republican primary of the last few months, have been much funnier than this movie.
Question -- why is it that MSNBC political analysts always get to play themselves in these types of movies -- Chris Matthews, Ed Schultz, etc.? Why can't Fox News people get their shot? Don't they have a sense of humor at Fox News? Not that I really want to see any of those people on the big screen -- I was just wondering.

The Campaign was a much needed diversion from this super charged, super stressful election season. And now that November 6th is past, and we can all breathe a sigh of relief, 'The Campaign' was definitely there when I needed of a laugh. A little bit raunchier than I'd have liked, 'Campaign' had its funny bits. Of course there's no denying that Ferrell and Galifianakis are hilarious in their own right, but they played off of one another well enough not to steal too much of the spotlight. Pretty solid comedy from two veteran funny men.
