The leads do fine work, but the screenplay bizarrely reduces Ferrell to straight man for much of the film.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

It is meticulously bipartisan in its ridicule, from the right's embrace of God and guns, to the left's disingenuous stance against fat cats and big money.

But for all its silliness, THE CAMPAIGN fixes what's broken in American politics with easy laughs and sharp truths.

Funny and entertaining, it's not a heavyweight contender, but who wants a heavyweight contender every time?

Poking fun at the nastiness of elections, The Campaign finally brings together two of Hollywood's funniest comedians.

Really stupid, funny things happen that'll make you laugh when you're thinking about them later, alone and scared in the world.

If it's sophistication you're looking for, forget it. This one's strictly for low laughs, at which it succeeds nicely.

[B]itter, brutal, and -- unfortunately for the hopes and dreams of the American people -- very very pointedly funny...

The Campaign is an equal split of smart and stupid. Some people may be off-put by the wild detours into vulgarity, but I relished it.

The Campaign does manage to strike a funny chord but don't be ashamed to find out these election results on home video.

Will Ferrell's funniest movie in years, this is a silly comedy with a terrible sentimental streak, but the political satire running through it is dead on

Don't look for wry satire - the gags are big and brash - but with the duelling stars on top form, The Campaign scores high in the approval ratings.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

The increasingly absurd squabbling between Ferrell and Galifianakis provides more than enough hearty laughs to be getting on with.
