When long-term congressman Cam Brady (Will Ferrell) commits a major public gaffe before an upcoming election, a pair of ultra-wealthy CEOs plot to put up a rival candidate and gain influence over their North Carolina district.  Their man: naïve Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis), director of the local Tourism Center. At first, Marty appears to be the unlikeliest possible choice but, with the help of his new benefactors’ support, a cutthroat campaign manager and his family’s political connections, he soon becomes a contender who gives the charismatic Cam plenty to worry about. As election day closes in, the two are locked in a dead heat, with insults quickly escalating to injury until all they care about is burying each other, in this mud-slinging, back-stabbing, home-wrecking comedy from "Meet the Parents" director Jay Roach that takes today's political circus to its logical next level.  Because even when you think campaign ethics have hit rock bottom, there's room to dig a whole lot deeper. The creative filmmaking team includes director of photography Jim Denault (Emmy nominee for HBO's "Carnivàle"); production designer Michael Corenblith (Oscar® nominee, "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" and "Apollo 13"); editors Craig Alpert ("Knocked Up," "Borat") and Jon Poll ("Meet the Fockers"); and costume designer Daniel Orlandi ("The Blind Side"). "The Campaign" will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

Will Ferrell (Step Brothers, Semi-Pro, Anchoroman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy) as Camden "Cam" Brady
Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover, Due Date, Dinner for Schmucks) as Martin "Marty" Huggins
Dylan McDermott (American Horror Story, The Practice, Wonderland) as Tim Wattley
Jason Sudeikis (Horrible Bosses, Hall Pas, The Rocker) as Mitch Wilson
Brian Cox (The Escapist, Zodiac, Troy, Adaption) as Raymond Huggins
John Lithgow (Footloose, 3 Rock from the Sun, Dexter) as Glen Motch
Dan Aykroyd (Saturday Night Live, Ghostbusters, Exit to Eden) as Wade Motch
Katherine LaNasa (Valentine’s Day, Alfie, Schizoplois) as Rose Brady
Sarah Baker (Go On, Bones, In Gayle We Trust, Free Radio) as Mitzi Huggins

This movie really was never a dull moment at all, with its crude humour and entertainment the whole way through. Zack Galifianakis is awkwardly funny as always and does it to perfection. Seeing him with clean cut hair is definitely a weird change from the dirty Hangover look. Will Farrell is great and brings in his kind of comedy as he does funny things like punching babies and dogs. The slow motion baby punch was especially hilarious, even though it was obviously computer animated, it looked too good. Dylan McDermott plays a very sly neutral agent and Jason Sudeikis makes a good partner as Will Farrell’s head of campaign. Dinner table scene at the Huggins’ house, had the funniest lines in the movie and were increasingly raunchy. The fact that this movie actually satirizes John Edwards and the Koch brothers makes this movie even more entertaining. I really like that this movie was only an hour and a half long, they didn’t drag it out with boring drama and stuck to the chase. I definitely recommend watching this movie.
