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.

I saw this yesterday with a friend; we both loved it! Very funny; classic Will Ferrell/Zach Galifianakis goofiness. Every time I see either of these guys on screen, I always wonder, is there anything either of them won't do? haha

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.
