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.

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.

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!!

The good : Hillarious. Zach Galifianakis does a great job with his character, and is the perfect straight man to Will Ferrell. The audience was roaring scene after scene. This is an excellent comedy that will keep you laughing through most of the movie.
The bad : Will Ferrell plays the same role he's played in every other Will Ferrell moviel; there's nothing new here. Like many comedies the laughs taper off towards the end.
Conclusion : if you liked Talledega Nights or you are a Zach Galifianakis fan (bonus for both), then you will be in tears.

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.
