    To be honest, watching The Campaign right now was probably a bad idea. It’s just more fuel for the fire of my hatred of American politics. This movie takes the kind of sensationalism and ugliness that is a reality in our modern mass media political world, and takes it to the extreme with caricatures of real people. Perhaps more disturbing is when I think there are politicians who could win elections with these exact practices, even if they are ridiculous. I didn’t find any of it funny as they revel in the most juvenile sexual humor imaginable. There also isn’t much plot to talk about in The Campaign. It’s literally just the story of an ugly smear campaign between two infantile candidates who will do anything to get elected. The issues don’t matter, the characters don’t matter, it’s a framework for bad jokes and lazy improv. I was so disgusted and annoyed that I couldn’t care less how it ended. The whole movie is a great example of the sorry state of modern comedy. You don’t have to write anything clever nowadays. Instead you just create a situation, add some extreme sexual comedy and a whole lot of profanity, then sprinkle in a bunch of goofy unrealistic characters that feel like they were hatched in an SNL writers’ room, finally leave room for a good amount of improvisation. The end result is always trash, and yet that’s what we continue to get. The Campaign is an easy movie for me to tell everyone to avoid.

    Kinda flew under the radar compared to other projects these two have done, so I never checked it out. Solid for fans of their other work.

    The Campaign is another Will Ferrell special. This movie is extremely funny but his competitor had an annoying voice.

    Just great, silly fun. This movie is full of clever jokes and nonsense, which is what you want to see in a silly comedy like this.

    Will and Zach are hilarious. Skewers both the left and the right, with solid laughs throughout.

    Has a few laughs and Will Ferrell once again steals the show. Could have been a little clever though.

    Although humour is subjective from person to person, I found this film extremely funny.
