A dud

The campaign is a comedy with typical and predictable story arcs. Of course it has its bizarre moments that are anything but typical, but the ending, and the character development (of what little there is) travels the road most travelled. Ferrell and Galifanakis have good chemistry, but the content never amuses or incites genuine chuckles. Both actors seem they are in it for the paycheck rather than the content, and neither provide much to truly laugh at. The story falls flat, the comedy falls flat, there is little to enjoy and even less to remember. The campaign is another 21st century comedy dud among the many of similar nature.

Humorous mocking of modern politicians and voters

'The Campaign' is exactly what you expect it to be - a silly, predictable dumb comedy movie that you've already seen a million times before, only under a different title. Though this one does have a few positives to make it stand out from the crowd.

Obviously, the film mocks modern politics but it isn't just the politicians who are ridiculed. The film perfectly captures the naivety of some American voters, from cheering whenever they hear any mention of God, to shouting out incoherent nonsense at rallies. Some of the humour is subtle but very funny if you pick up on it.

Overall, 'The Campaign' is nothing special but it did make me laugh. As you would expect, Ferrell and Galifianakis are both very funny in their roles. A decent, enjoyable comedy movie.

Not too bad - a decent parody of US politics

Cam Brady (played by Will Ferrell) is a veteran politician and congressman. However, the power-brokers/people with the money in his party decide that he is a liability to the party and find another candidate to run against him, Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis). The campaign is going to be a dirty one...

Not too bad. Has some very funny lines and scenes and does parody American politics quite well. However, it does get mired in empty sentimentality and sub-plots that go nowhere. Plus, neither of the contenders are likable, leaving no "hero" to support.

Good performance from Will Ferrell. Zach Galifianakis' character was particularly irritating, but hard to fault the performance too much. Good support from Jason Sudeikis and Dylan McDermott, plus from John Lithgow, Dan Aykroyd and Brian Cox in minor roles.
