The Campaign (2012)

campaignThe Campaign (2012)

Directed by: Jay Roach

Starring: Will Ferrell, Zach Galifianakis, Jason Sudeikis


I’ve never been a fan of Will Ferrell. Really, that’s an understatement, I think his movies are the worst form of lowest common denominator trash, made for the purpose of mass appeal by insulting the viewers’ intelligence. So no, I didn’t like The Campaign.

Ferrell and Galifianakis are rivals running for a senate position for South Carolina or somewhere in the south. You know, so they can make fun of the south. Don’t worry about there being a lot of heady political humor in here that might go over your head, since most of the jokes are fart or sex-based.

There’s nothing new or unique about The Campaign, it’s really all been done before. A formulaic skeleton of a plot guides you through the series of predictable jokes which should provoke some laughs if you’re the kind of person who enjoys seeing the same thing you’ve seen before. Even in that case, the film is quite easy to miss.
