About the Movie
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.
Fresh: Despite the obviousness of its political points, the film has a scattershot, breezy appeal.
Fresh: Funny and entertaining, it's not a heavyweight contender, but who wants a heavyweight contender every time?
Rotten: Perhaps one in ten of the jokes hits the mark; the rest are damp, childish squibs
One of the funniest comedies this year
Along with Ted and The Watch this truly is one of the greatest comedies I've seen this year. It delivered on so many levels laughs, good jokes etc. Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis should make more movies together because they did great in this one. This is a must watch for all Will Ferrell fans.
Greatest movie I have seen in a long time
At first when I saw the trailer for this movie, I thought this was just another stupid movie from Will Ferrell. But then when I saw it, I was glad that I had given it a chance. I found my self laughing my brains out. The jokes making fun of politics were hilarious, and not only that it was funny. It had meaning to it and that made it even better. Definitely a movie worth buying because for me, I want to watch it over and over again.
