Plot Summary

Get the Extended Cut, with even more mud-slinging, back-stabbing, home-wrecking comedy featuring Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis. 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 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 a cutthroat campaign manager, he soon becomes a contender who gives 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 hilarious comedy from "Meet the Parents" director Jay Roach. Because even when you think campaign ethics have hit rock bottom, there's room to dig even deeper.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Simply taken as a broad character comedy, "The Campaign" definitely has its moments. – Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com, Aug 13, 2012

Fresh: Despite the obviousness of its political points, the film has a scattershot, breezy appeal. – Bruce Diones, New Yorker, Aug 20, 2012

Fresh: Funny and entertaining, it's not a heavyweight contender, but who wants a heavyweight contender every time? – Catherine Bray, Film4, Mar 4, 2013

Rotten: Perhaps one in ten of the jokes hits the mark; the rest are damp, childish squibs – Kate Muir, Times [UK], Sep 28, 2012

Seems legit...

Am I the only non-'Murican who viewed this movie almost as a documentary of American politics?

Good, but not great

Had its moments for sure , but I guess I thought with Will and Zach it would have been amazing .

Dumb Funny

Funny in a dumb way.
