Entertainment Reviews:

Box Office - 08/07/2012
4 stars out of 5 -- "The great thing about THE CAMPAIGN, is that it's weird and strange and surreal and passionate and dirty, a crazy-smart comedy where you laugh until it hurts..."
Hollywood Reporter - 08/04/2012
"[L]eads Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis are amusingly on point as a pair of mud-slinging contenders for Congress..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 08/08/2012
3 stars out of 4 -- "The movie uses their campaign as a showcase of political scandals that have become familiar in both parties....[The director guides] both Ferrell and Galifianakis in playing characters who are at a certain distance from their usual screen personas."
Entertainment Weekly - 08/17/2012
"[A] film that is truly, scathingly topical -- not just a comedy but a bona fide satire of what's going on now. That's part of what makes THE CAMPAIGN such a tasty, hilarious treat." -- Grade: A-
Total Film - 10/01/2012
3 stars out of 5 -- "[With] light-hearted lampooning and cartoony, cringe-inducing gags..."
Sight and Sound - 11/01/2012
"[The film] feels quite loose and freely improvised....It's laugh-out-loud funny."

Product Description:

Two powerful CEOs pit a blundering congressman against an unlikely political newcomer in order to seize control of a crucial North Carolina district in this satirical political comedy starring Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis. On the eve of an upcoming election, incumbent congressman Cam Brady (Ferrell) makes a misstep that threatens to end his career in politics. Recognizing the opportunity to gain influence in the aftermath of the public gaffe, a pair of scheming CEOs handpick credulous tourism-center director Marty Huggins (Galifianakis) as Brady's political rival, quickly shaping him into a viable candidate with the help of a seasoned campaign manager. As Election Day draws near, Brady and Huggins cast ethics aside to engage in the brand of hysterical mud-slinging that's sent contemporary politics straight down the toilet. Jason Sudeikis, John Lithgow, and Brian Cox co-star.
