The Campaign Movie Review
Article: Most American political comedies fail to engage their audience, in part because they contain so little comedy and in part because they contain so little politics. Movies like Welcome to Mooseport, Head of State and Man of the Year put big names in broad comedies, but their laughs come from silly jokes about their stars, not sharp or smart material that's actually about politics. Starring Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis as candidates for Congressional election in North Carolina—Ferrell the incumbent, Galifianakis a babe-in-the-woods challenger—The Campaign is an unrepentantly R-rated comedy, but what makes it fascinating is that it dares to name names and call out real problems in its dissection of money-mad modern American politics. Audiences may not be in the mood for the harsher truths in the film, but Ferrell and Galifianakis provide more than enough strange laughs that their sugar helps the bi-partisan bad medicine go down. Think of it as someone making a peanut butter and chocolate swirl of Mad magazine and The New Yorker—two unique tastes making one great treat.
Director Jay Roach is the man who gave us the Austin Powers films and their raucous naughty-bits Cold War spoofery, but he also directed the acclaimed HBO films Recount and Game Change, depicting the real-life events—or, more bluntly, shenanigans—of the 2000 and 2008 Presidential elections. The force driving the plot of The Campaign is, bluntly, the same as the force driving a lot of the 2012 campaign: Money.

The multi-billionaire Motch brothers, Dan Aykroyd and John Lithgow, funnel funds into supporting a rival for Cam's traditionally uncontested seat who will then let them run amok in the name of profit. The sacrificial lamb—who will be padded with anonymous, unlimited cash to resemble a lion—is Zach Galifianakis'
