It's as good as you think it will be

I saw this last night and am still laughing from some of the scenes. The trailer doesn't even come close to showing the best parts. Go see it. You'll have a great time.

If you know who John Edwards is and has heard of North Carolina, you will LOVE this movie. Even though it was filmed in Louisiana (the only faux pas a North Carolinian would recognize), everything was spot on. Will and Zach were spot on and their chemistry was great! Not for children! But if you are an adult that likes to make fun of politics, please go!!!

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.

Worth a watch.

I am a politically minded figure, and right off the bat I know that this would have a fairly liberal bias to it, something that I did not find detrimental, but I am just warning those who want to catch the flick. Aside from this, I expected quite a lot from this film, based most in fact that having Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis starring side by side probably meant that there would be no shortage of laughs. As is, the movie does not disappoint, though I would not say that it was a comedic powerhouse. The bottom line, if I had a choice to rent it, or buy it, I would side with renting it despite the fact that it is worth a watch in theaters.

Not for Me!!

This movie had an interesting story line which was spoiled by the gratuitous, explicit vulgar language. The explicit sex and language were completely unnecessary, and not expected from the trailer for the film. I have decided that Will Ferrell, no matter how funny he can be, simply can't make a decent movie. I was very troubled to see young children leaving the theater. Another spoiler for us was seven previews before the movie began. A film billed as a 7 p.m. showing did not get started until nearly 7:30. That is too much.
