When you see Will Ferrall in a movie, you know that it's likely to be funny. With Zack Galifanakis, you know that it's going to be hilarious. And when you see that credit telling you that Jay Roach directed this picture, you know that it's going to be nothing short of brilliant."The Campaign" is a movie with non-stop laughs - so much that the theater fills to it's brim with a beaming storm of laughter. The jokes are original and, put quite accurately, hysterical.Chris Henchy's script is filled with unnecessary and pushy vulgarities as well as heavy sexual remarks <more>
that continue to bring our society down. However, the actual story is simple. And a simple story is no flaw to a movie. A simple story does not make a movie less entertaining. In this case, the sequence of events come so beautifully and easily that you as the viewer are not left struggling to keep up with what is going on. There is no fighting between the audience and the story in this film. Instead, they work together flawlessly.Despite the film's premise, you do not need know a single thing about politics to understand the film. The film, although about two candidates struggling to become congressmen, really shows us what characters played by Will Ferrall and Zack Galifanakis will do to win. I'm sure you can only imagine what could happen.Between every laugh, the understandable story and original characters are able to teach us a lesson or two - perhaps about politics, or even the way we live our lives in general. It is a story about obedience, honestly, and doing what is truly right.Ferrall, Galifanakis, Sudeikis and McDermott sink beautifully into their roles. Even though the The Oscars rarely seem to take notice of comedies, Zack Galifanakis truly deserves an Oscar for the child-like man he becomes in this film.Overall, the film is hilarious. There are scenes in this movie that will definitely make you laugh. In some cases, they focus on the stupidity of these characters which gets conveyed so comedically powerfully that you become truly mesmerized. Other times, the level of intelligence at which these jokes are played at is remarkable. They are perfectly timed, both in regards to how they were edited in the movie, as well as at what point in time we are politically at this moment of time in history.Seeing the "behind the scenes" work of a campaign has just become a whole lot funnier. These opponents want to win, and through advertising, put each other down while doing so. Much of the movie is about retaliation - what the other person does in response to being criticized. And remember, this is Will Ferrall who is reacting to what Zack Galifanakis said about him on TV, so you can only imagine how extreme things can become.10/10 - SEE THIS MOVIE!I'm an IMDb user, and I approve this message.
The movie is a marvelous satire on the American political system. It does a job on the effect of money in politics, the mindset of the social conservatives, the fluff answers to questions in debates, the focus on getting reelected over personal beliefs, and especially the lack of any rules in politics. There are veiled analogies to John Edwards and especially to the Koch brothers, who are famous for giving millions of dollars to Republicans. The guest commentators include Wolf Blitzer from CNN and Chris Matthews from MSNBC from the center and right. I am guessing that Fox News commentators <more>
chose not to participate.The movie leaves you with a good feeling when you get out of the theater. I laughed out loud all through the movie. I highly recommend it.
Can't remember an almost non stop laugh out loud movie for a long time. It is more sophisticated than the SNL satirical parodies and more consistently hilarious than a Farrelly Brothers movie. You might have expected a comedy about a political campaign to be obvious and preachy but this comedy succeeds in clever spontaneous jokes that are not too crude.One of the best roles for Will Ferrell so far. In the past I think he was best in supporting roles eg Producers, Wedding Crashers than in leading roles. But this role suits him to a T. He manages to bring a combination of John Edwards, GW <more>
Bush and other political caricitures into a perfect blend. Zach has a role that is also suited to him. His effeminate conservative character is hilarious. Good supporting cast. Who knew Dylan Mcdermott could do comedy.Good job Chris Henchy on a great screenplay. Found it better than the Hangover 1 or 2 or Bridesmaids which were cruder and had long painful stretches. Loved the negative campaigns - should be required watching for campaign staffers. Some really hilarious bits are the Lord's Prayer and the maid. The only fault is the conclusion seemed a bit rushed in an effort to tie things up.Better than the trailers suggest. Funniest of the year by far.
Best Will Ferrell Movie since Step Brothers (by Joshsports60)
*There are no real spoilers in this review, just some basic plotI was privileged to attend a screening of The Campaign back in May.Cam Brady Will Ferrell is a congressman who has never really been challenged. But that changes, as the powerful Motch brothers Aykroyd and Lithgow who would have something to gain with Marty Huggins Zach Galifinakis as congressman.The movie is absolute comic gold. After the movie, I was wondering who Ferrell was channeling and I'm guessing it was John Edwards. There's nothing mind blowing here. Ferrell's not exactly doing a different character <more>
than past films like Talladega Knights and Blades of Glory. But that doesn't mean he wasn't funny. In fact, he was nothing short of brilliant in this particular role.Zach Galifinakis wasn't as good as Ferrell but he had some shining moments, no question. The back and forth battle was just superb. I could've watched those two go at it all day.Roach, the film's director, is no stranger to politics. For the record, this film doesn't lean liberal or conservative. In fact, there's barely any politics in it. All the film tried to do was to one up the ridiculousness of real life campaigns. And they did that real well.Sarah Baker really shined as Mitzi Huggins, Marty Huggins' wife. I hadn't really heard of her before this but I'm sure more work is headed her way. Her role won't make her Melissa McCarthy popular, but still solid. I was disappointed by the Motch brothers plot line. It was forced a little bit. And I didn't think they were very funny on screen.My favorite scene was probably where Marty Huggins' family is confessing their sins. They couldn't show some of the stuff in the Green band trailer, but after that scene, my ribs hurt and I was crying from laughter.So congratulations Chris Henchy and Shawn Harwell for just a fantastic and rich script. And I hope this is the start for another prolific writing team. The best comedy film of the summer yes, I thought it was better than Ted . And welcome back, Will Ferrell. It's good to see you making great films again.9/10Box Office Prediction: Crowded opening weekend, especially tough opening since they're competing with the same audience for The Bourne Legacy. I say a solid 25-30 million if the marketing campaign is good.
The Campaign marches its way into the midterm election season with tremendous laughter, sweetness and enough Will Ferrel zaniness to hold audiences over for the triumphant return of Ron Burgundy in 2013. Here, Will Ferrel and crew manage to make a political comedy that actually has a sense of humor. Meaning, it pulls punches at both parties, rather than it being a liberal love fest. When I first heard of this movie, I expected it to be more of the same. Jay Roach is notorious for making left leaning political bio-dramas like "Recount" and "Game Changer". Will Ferrel is <more>
known to be an outspoken liberal democrat. Zach Galifinakis is one too, remember the Mel Gibson debacle on Hangover Part II? But these three Hollywood big shots step over the party line and make a fun movie that satires the very thing that we as Americans should all laugh at, the campaign system. We all know the phoniness of campaign ads and political mudslinging. The Campaign puts these issues right in its place. Now the movie itself is hilarious. Its the Adam McKay/Will Ferrel formula at its finest. From the minute the film opens till the very last minute, you will be falling out of your seats with laughter. I haven't had more fun at the movies this year than with The Campaign.
Very Funny and a Perfect Match, (by lesleyharris30)
The Campaign is a hilarious movie with a very clever storyline and a very talented and comedic cast that do a terrific job.When I first heard that Will Ferrell and Zach Galifanakis did a movie together,I had to see it,but then I heard it was disappointing so I delayed seeing.I decided to rent it,and I didn't see what the problem was,I though the movie was hilarious,there was a few misses but very few,and similar to Step Brothers and the Hangover,it has so much lines that are very quotable,also the two actors worked really well together.I really enjoyed Dylan McDermott,Sarah Baker,Dan <more>
Aykroyd and John Lithgow,the casting for each character was all very well suited.If your a fan of both Will Ferrell and Zach Galifanakis comedies you will definitely love the Campaign.Long running congressman Cam Brady Will Ferrell finally gets some competition from Marty Huggins Zach Galifanakis ,a man who may take over his career.They start a serious campaign against each other.
After reading many reviews, i have to agree that this is a technically a bad film. The humor in this movie is very raw and crude which doesn't bother me , and it has a very simple storyline. I was ready to give this movie a rating of a 5 or below until i stopped looking into the movie too much, and saw it for what it is. The purpose of a comedy is to make people laugh, and that is exactly what myself and the rest of the theater did for the majority of the movie. The movie is so relevant as well with the upcoming presidential elections, and i feel this movie helps take the edge of the <more>
brutality of the current Obama vs. Romney.If you just want to see a simple movie that will make you laugh without having to think about the plot, then see the movie.
We audience were waiting for a movie to make us laugh from the start till the end but we were pretty much darned because of sexual innuendos used in the movies which made us close our kids' sight during the movies. One of the worst things is confronting with unexpected story developments with a lot of puns which make me think they are unnecessary. I believe and root for the idea of non sexual contents to make movies reach their target of getting the audience near bursting into laughter mode. Real comedy movie lovers do not really like sex and nudity in the movies at all. The Campaign is <more>
one of them to me .I would totally fall in love with this movie if there was limited or no sexual content in it . Farrel's teaming up with Hollywood's funniest looking dude Zack is just a diamond in comedy genre. This movie captivated me although i was not expecting it to be well done. The script is too simple and it's simplicity is one of the key roles for comedy genre. You pretty much know what is going on then you feel the engrossing scrip to hit you more with laughs. Jokes are pretty well embellished with witty quips. Zack's awesome look has been conveyed from Hangover sequels but he is not weird in character as he is in the Campaign. I am not going to spoil the movie with telling you what the movie is about . If you are on IMDb to read the reviews to decide what movie you really want to watch I can recommend you this movie as it wont surprise you at all.I WARN YOU FOR THE SEXUAL CONTENT and it is an R rated movie. There are a lot of elements comprising this movie to be a funny one except for the need for the sexual content . The cast and screenplay are intertwined to make the audience laugh and have awesome time . I rate this movie 8 out of 10. There is nothing falling short . Cinematography has not been tainted by the director. I really appreciate this movie to be one of the rarest for a long time . Kudos to Farrel and Zack. they were darn awesome !!
Ribald, funny, merciless fun at the expense of politicians and politics (by steven-leibson)
A very, very funny movie that's very, very coarse. If you are not amused by jokes about sex, body parts and bodily functions, effeminate men, scantily-clad women, politics, and politicians then this isn't your movie. If you like that sort of thing, then you need to see this movie now. Light, fluffy entertainment. No thinking required or desired . Good guys win. Bad guys either lose or are redeemed. I run hot and cold on Will Farrel movies. This one's a keeper for him but the real star of this movie is Zach Galifianakis who seems to replicate Jack Black's character in <more>
"Bernie" but with a completely different take. This movie will make you feel better about what's coming to American politics in the next three months.
