Movie Review- The Campaign
I really enjoyed The Campaign. It was one of the very few movies I actually laughed out loud at the movie theater. But, you can expect that from any Will Ferrell and Zach Galiflanakis movie. In all honesty I thought the movie was really going to suck, or be one of those movies where you feel like you have seen everything because you watched the trailer. But The Campaign surprised me. There were some REALLY good scenes that were not part of the trailer.
Cam Brady (Will Ferrell), the current senator of the North Carolina district, is battling it out with newcomer "politician" Marty Huggins (Zach Galiflanakis). Marty is being funded by corporate leaders in this huge unrealistic scam of "Insourcing". It is so far off from being politically correct (literally) that it's ridiculously funny. I like the fact a lot of the satire in the movie is based off allegations many American's believe-such as the rigging of the electronic voting polls.
I have to say there is one part in The Campaign with "rainbow village" that will have you dying of laughter in your seat. I won't go into too much detail because I don't want to give anything away...but simply genius.
I was so upset when walking into the theater on a Monday night and seeing that there were only seats in the front row left. I was probably upset for the first 5 minutes until I barely noticed I was starting at the screen at a 90 degree angle because it was entertaining.
If you are looking for a good movie to just laugh...go see The Campaign.
