Did not find the movie funny at all mainly because the humor was baised on campaign trends that are alll too true. Was also shocking to find out a week after this movie came out that our United States elections ballots will now be counted by a privatly owned company with no oversight. Was the movie prophetic or did they have inside information??? I wish I could just laugh this up *******

Roach, who also counts such lowbrow laffers as "Austin Powers" and "Meet the Fockers" on his resume, manages to keep things broad without sacrificing smarts. Full Review

The New York Times
Too soft and silly to be satire, too upbeat to be a cautionary tale, the film is a fun-house fable that both exaggerates and understates the absurdities of our democracy in this contentious election year. Full Review

San Francisco Chronicle
The resultant spoofery is nonpartisan, or at least vague - we never learn which of these flesh-pressing idiots is the Republican and which is the Democrat - and raucous in its send-ups of the moral, financial and sexual peccadilloes of the common political animal. Full Review

Washington Post
Tends toward the broadest possible takes on slapstick, sophomoric sexuality and post-"Hangover" raunch. Full Review

"It's a mess" is the campaign slogan of Marty Huggins, played by Galifianakis. He's referring to the state of government. But he might as well be describing the movie in which he co-stars. Full Review
