About the Movie

Comedy superstars Will Ferrell (Step Brothers, Get Hard) and Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover, Due Date) face off as rival Southern politicians in a small South Carolina congressional district in this electoral comedy directed and produced by comedy's go-to director Jay Roach (Dinner for Schmucks, Meet the Parents, Austin Powers). Satirizing the "circus of modern-day politics," this congressional comedy timed to the 2012 presidential election offers up a landslide of laughs.

Top Critics' Reviews

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

This is one of the funniest movies I have seen in a long time. I first saw it in theaters. It is certainly worth renting! The language is crude and there are sexually explicit scenes, but Ferrel and Galifanakis absolutely deliver. They work extremely well together in this movie. The humor is very blunt and isn't necessarily clever- it's more offensive and outrageous. However, if you like Ferrel films like Anchorman and Talledega Nights, you will undoubtedly enjoy this movie.

Funniest movie I ever seen!!!

Just laughed completely through out.


My wife and I were laughing the entire time, and she hates stuff like this. Rent it.
