Well, what did I expect? Will Ferrel has made a career out of a certain brand of low brow comedy, and he certainly isn't stretching here. Yes, there are a few pearls amongst the swine, but you'd expect that in using the scatter gun brand of comedy (throw a hundred jokes at the ...

Zack Galifanakis far outshone Will Farrell in this typical Will Ferrell style comedy.

Not Ferrell's best turn, but he's done much worse. And Zach Galifianakis isn't doing much you haven't seen before, rolling his Seth Galifianakis character into his role a bumpkin-cum-politician Marty Huggins. But what you see really is what you get: two talented comic foils going...

Marty Huggins: Bring your brooms cause it's a mess.
"May The Best Loser Win"
I guess I expected too much from The Campaign. What I got was a dry and rather disappointing political satire that substitutes intelligent jokes for stupid slapstick and sexually explicit material. I ...

Crude, sexually explicit but yet enough to garner a bunch of laughs. The film is able to produce magic from the chemistry and hysterical jousting of Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis. Though it may not live up to the intended hype, The Campaign is a bundle of laughter in time fo...
