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, Rovi
Two great comic geniuses come together here to create two memorable and hilarious characters in Cam Brady and Marty Huggins. This movie was too short though clocking in at 85 minutes. A little bit more would have been better.
This is a very funny film. One of the funniest characters Will Ferrall has done in a while. I laughed so hard at some scenes my side hurt. Most comedies now a days are terrible but this one is a keeper.
This is the first time I really like Will Ferrell. Of course Zach Galifianakis( if you could pick any name as an actor I would not pick my last name as GALIFIANAKIS because nobody on the plant can remember this stupid name) is soooo funny HAA HAA ha... It is about the up coming election and has pre-dicked that Obama WILL LOSE .
