Two powerful CEOs pit a blundering congressman against an unlikely political newcomer in order to seize control of a crucial North Carolina district in this satirical political comedy starring Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis. On the eve of an upcoming election, incumbent congressman Cam Brady (Ferrell) makes a misstep that threatens to end his career in politics. Recognizing the opportunity to gain influence in the aftermath of the public gaffe, a pair of scheming CEOs handpick credulous tourism-center director Marty Huggins (Galifianakis) as Brady's political rival, quickly shaping him into a viable candidate with the help of a seasoned campaign manager. As Election Day draws near, Brady and Huggins cast ethics aside to engage in the brand of hysterical mud-slinging that's sent contemporary politics straight down the toilet. Jason Sudeikis, John Lithgow, and Brian Cox co-star.~Jason Buchanan
I just finished watching this movie over the weekend. What a funny movie and so perfect for this election cycle. If you want to laugh out loud, this is the movie to watch. Regardless of the political party you belong to or identify with, you will enjoy this movie.
I honestly love comedy movies, so if it is a known comedy movie I usually love it. This is not like my favorite comedy movie or anything but it is good with some good lines. I collect blu rays, but if I did not I probably would have just bought it on DVD or not bought it, but it was on sale. Still definitely worth seeing, some great lines.
This movie was surprisingly HILARIOUS! Well I guess I wasn't too surprised, seeing how two of my favorite comedic actors are in it. What you see is what you get with this one, an hour and a half of pure, unadulterated stupid comedy haha. If you like Will Ferrell, you will like this movie.
