About the Movie
When long-term congressman Cam Brady (Will Ferrell) commits a major public gaffe before an upcoming election, a pair of ultra-wealthy CEOs plot to put up a rival candidate and gain influence over their North Carolina district. Their man: naïve Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis), director of the local Tourism Center. At first, Marty appears to be the unlikeliest possible choice but, with the help of his new benefactors' support, a cutthroat campaign manager and his family's political connections, he soon becomes a contender who gives the charismatic Cam plenty to worry about. As election day closes in, the two are locked in a dead heat, with insults quickly escalating to injury until all they care about is burying each other in this mud-slinging, back-stabbing, home-wrecking comedy from "Meet the Parents" director Jay Roach. Because even when you think campaign ethics have hit rock bottom, there's room to dig a whole lot deeper.
Rude, crude, and quite funny!
I'm not sure what I was expecting, but this wasn't it. A great cast whose talent seemed wasted in this flick. A watchable film, but no big belly laughs like in some of their previous films.
Worst Will Farrell movie so far
I am a big fan of every Will Farrell move that I have seen so far, but this one was just not funny. A couple of shock value moments, but just not funny. Toilet humour that is not funny
