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.

Pretty funny movie at times but I would probably wait til it comes out on DVD. I live in DC, though, so it was a topical movie for me! Ha.

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.

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!!!

Like many Will Ferrell movies, this one may be another with so many funny parts there are many that are overlooked the first time round and after you see it time or two you end up loving it even more. I remember the first time I saw Step Brothers, thought it was funny but didn't think it was that great, until the second/third go around where it's a classic. The combination of Will & Zach is like night and day as their characters are two over the top representations of Republicans & Democrats. A few comedy heavyweights (some literally) like Dan Akroyd, John Lithgow, and Jason Sudekis provide a little bit too the mix but this is clearly all on Will & Zach. An appropriate message with the upcoming election and how both parties are pretty much full of s***. It's nice to see people able to laugh about it rather than going crazy about whatever it is that's on the agenda. A good but very crude & vulgar flick so parents, wise up and leave the kids at home.
