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!!!

Decently Funny!

This movie kind of makes fun of the politicians of today. Trying to win without making any type of change to help the people. Gives some funny twist of how politicians may try to win a seat.

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.

I took my wife and adult daughter to this movie. There were several parts in the movie where we laughed until we cried. However, this is definitely not for children. There were way too many f bombs and other bathroom humor that could have been eliminated and still have a funny movie. It seems too many movie directors and writers these days think they have to do that just to get an R rating. If you are a fan of Will and Zach's style of humor, you will like this movie. The plot is OK if not predictable, but still many laugh out loud moments. Overall, I would give it a 3 out of 5 stars for the entertainment value, but a thumbs down for the gross language. Jim in NH
