The Campaign

Rated R 97 min. 2012

When Cam Brady (Will Ferrell), the incumbent congressman of an off-the-map North Carolina district, finally gets an opponent in Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis), the shit-slinging begins. Initially, Huggins doesn't stand a chance; his pug-loving persona and slight lisp get him branded with a scarlet O (for odd). After some help from a wealthy duo, Huggins finds his inner politician but loses his sense of decency. The movie's absurd accusations mirror current politics and add cheeky relevance to a plot riddled with dick jokes. Even though Ferrell plays his usual dumb-ass hotshot, The Campaign can't quite compete with his best movies. Still, there are plenty of laughs, even if the ending teeters on the sentimental.
