When incumbent Congressman Cam Brady (Will Ferrell) commits a major gaffe, two wealthy CEOs decide to try to gain influence in their district by putting up a rival candidate. Their unlikely choice is a naive tourism director named Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis).

As Election Day approaches, each man slings mud galore in a last-ditch effort to bury the other.

  • The jokes never go deep, the toothless bites at the system leave no marks. It's only the wild-card energy of Ferrell and Galifianakis that keeps you on the ticket. show more

  • Instead of biting wit, though, the movie settles for sketch humor, standard-brand raunch and toothless slapstick that trivializes everything it touches. show more

  • Relying on improv-y riffing and watch-them-coming-from-down-the-block-and-around-the-corner sight gags, The Campaign is intermittently amusing, but more often just interminable. show more

Zach Galifianakis proves his comical versatility in his role as the opposing Candidate ...Snake in the Church is hilarious ...Caution: This is a politically correct comedy.If you don't like politics ....You'll like this movie... Crudely Fowell.... but very funny .. Vintage Ferrell .. .;):)
