The Campaign (2012)

It’s a satirical play on American politics – but man, did it ever seem like the lead-up to a real election.

One politician, Cam Brady (Will Ferrell), seemingly looking out for himself rather than the people takes on another, Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis), in an election filled with excitement and extraordinary events.

Brady – who has run unopposed for the past few elections – suddenly has some competition.  Huggins, backed by a pair of rich brothers with their own business agenda, is the underdog.  He’s a quirky, unlikely candidate who has to choose between his family values and the steps he has to take to win the election.

The feud between Ferrell and Galifianakis keeps audiences entertained with their stupidity and odd interactions.

Director Jay Roach takes us on a behind-the-scenes tour of one family man’s journey into politics.

What will it take for Marty Huggins to oust Cam Brady as North Carolina’s congressman?

It’s an answer that will have you laughing from start to finish.

The Campaign is a good film for letting loose and relaxing with having to think.
