"The Campaign" made me think of "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington" if it had been written by the Onion staff.
Can't wait for this one!

This statement has pretty much sold me, I'm going this weekend.

Is Ebert going to correct his review? He says both leads are Republicans and are in a GOP primary race, but the movie makes it clear that Ferrell's character is a Democratic Congressman and they're running in the general election. Or did he ignore that so he could make that snarky comment at the end of his review?

Yeah, he seems to have gotten that fact wrong.

I went to this film because of this review...I didn't see the same things Ebert saw. The films has some good laughs but is too slapsticky and heavy handed to fully succeed as a political satire. In a Hollywood with so many Great political comedy scripts, this one dumbs it down way too much. It made my Will Ferrel fan side smile. It made my Political Comedy side shrug tees shoulders.
