It is what it is.....................a Will and Zach movie. Pretty raunchy but funny in many parts. But, not really realistic. Good light hearted fun though. I enjoyed it!!

Hits the target -- but it's a mighty big target

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.

Politics As Usual

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.

This was a terrible, non-sensical movie. I'd say there were a handful of moments that I laughed. Otherwise there were lots of cheap laughs. Stay away unless you desperately need to go to a comedy movie.

Total let down. I never thought I'd see the day that I didn't like a Will Ferrell movie, but sadly, this is it. There were a few funny parts, but overall it was more obscene, offensive and boring than I ever would've expected. On a positive note, Zack was great as Marty Huggins, and the ending was somewhat redeeming. Otherwise, unlike all the other Will Ferrell movies, I'll be glad to never see it again.
