The Campaign

UK Release Date: 28th September 2012

An incumbent congressman embroiled in personal scandal faces a no-holds-barred challenge from a naive newcomer funded by two unscrupulous billionaire lobbyist brothers (

Director: Jay Roach (Austin Powers in Goldmembers, Meet the Fockers, Dinner for Schmucks)

Starring: Will Ferrell, Zach Galifianakis, Jason Sudeikis, Dylan McDermott

With two well proportioned comedian/actors, there should be plenty of laugh out loud jokes in The Campaign. Ferrell and Galifianakis are running for congress of a small town in North Carolina. Ferrell is outrageous and nonsensical whilst Galifianakis is a bit of a dork. They never quite gel in their battle of wits. Scenes that separate them are stronger than those united. The story doesn't progress past each candidate attempts to outdo the other, until the inevitable conclusion of a winner. At least The Campaign is a lighthearted film, even if the comedy's below average.
