Not one of the best Will Ferrell movie, but partnering up with Zach Galifianakis made this move funny and able to watch. Funny, but not hilarious.

While I really enjoy all the people in this movie, this movie was a miss for me overall.

It's always sorta refreshing to watch a movie that doesn't need to be taken seriously in the slightest. It wasnt great obviously but it was fun. I had to skip a bit of the beginning but after that I was entertained and spoiler alert I laughed really really hard at one part. Damn door (lol)

My expectations were a little low on this one, but while the ending is rather forced (both candidates are in the same ballroom to hear the election results???) there really were some genuine laugh out loud moments, and Zach Galifianakis is surprisingly good as Marty Huggins.

very funny, some laugh out loud moments, especially the dinner scene with the kids "fessing up", hilarious! not a kid friendly movie at all. pretty raunchy actually. funnier than I thought for sure, Will Ferrell has a lot of hits and misses, I would consider this a hit.

While watching this, I kept thinking did Will Ferrell sell his comedic soul to have a hit movie again. Even if Alan McKay was one of the screenwriters, it seemed that he threw caution to the wind to do this film. It works but wow- and I do not mean that in a good way.

Consistently hilarious. A good satire of American politics.

"The Campaign" made me think of "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington" if it had been written by the Onion staff. It involves a Congressional election in North Carolina in which both campaigns are reduced to gaffes and dirty tricks, until the tide is turned at the last moment by an uncontrolled outburst of honesty. Will Ferrell stars as Cam Brady, the four-term incumbent who runs basically because he likes being a congressman. Zach Galifianakis is Marty Huggins, the doofus who runs the local tourism board and is backed by billionaire brothers who want to "insource" cheap labor by buying the district and then selling it at a profit to China.

Mitch: Push it.

Marty Huggins: Push it, push it real good?
