No consensus yet.
Its crude brand of political satire isn't quite as smart or sharp as one might hope in an election year, but The Campaign manages to generate a sufficient number of laughs thanks to its well-matched leads.

A few funny moments, but in light of all the Trump stuff, pretty accurate viewing, even though it was made prior to all this and I am just late watching it.
Below average comedy.
An average satire of the cancerous political platform known as the campaign for public office, with two of the most powerful comedic titans of the industry (Will Ferrell, Zack Galifianakis) at the helms. It starts to head in the right direction near its conclusion, but sadly it is already too late. Ferrell sports another over the top performance that we are all used to, while Galifianakis and his silly southern accent are not as utilized. Americans need a movie with a ferocious political bite like say, "Wag the Dog", especially now, when the future of our country looks bleak. Sadly, "The Campaign" is not that beast, instead it comes across as somewhat likable but largely forgettable, and probably a film that should have been on Ferrell's "Funny or Die" website as a 5-10 minute sketch, not an hour and a half long film.
A real riot. This movie gets my vote. A raunchy, wild and hilarious comedy. Zach Galifianakis and Will Ferrell are comedy gold together. A super funny satire that packs plenty of laughs and a great cast. Dylan McDermott and Jason Sudeikis are terrific. A really funny good time. Over the top fun from start to finish.
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 as bumpkin-cum-politician Marty Huggins. But what you see really is what you get: two talented comic foils going at each other for 90 minutes. The story is a bit thin but the supporting cast is also funny. There can be only one Anchorman in Ferrell's career - even if he is making a sequel - and this isn't it. That doesn't mean there's anything wrong with the movie. It's a comedy... laugh already.
