If two of the most hilarious men in Hollywood aren’t enough of a reason for you to see ‘The Campaign’ — I can give you five more. Read on for more details!
Will Ferrell, Zach Galifianakis and politics are a hilarious combination that make for a must-see summer movie.
Will plays Cam Brady, an incumbent — and arguably incompetent –fictitious Congressman of a troubled district in North Carolina. He’s the only one in the running for another term in Congress and is expected to win until the ultra-wealthy Motch brothers ask the naive, pug dog-loving and unlikeliest choice, Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis), to run against Cam in hopes to ultimately build a Chinese sweatshop in their district.
Marty is clueless about the Motch brothers secret plan and unfortunately gets sucked into their dirty, devious ways which turns into a comical catastrophe full of fighting, sex and guns. The truth about politicians and how their decisions are sometimes money-driven is the theme of The Campaign, but mixed with Will and Zach’s humor, its satirical writing and Jay Roach’s directing — this movie will undoubtedly be a quotable one — think in the same realm as Anchorman or Wedding Crashers.
Now without further adieu, and spoiling too much, here’s why you need to see The Campaign before the end of the summer.
#1 It’s Pee-In-Your Pants Funny
There are plenty of “oh my gosh they really said that moments?” in the film. Some are are just plain outrageous and others are PG-rated, but overall you’ll be laughing every five minutes.
#2 You’ll Learn Something
Who doesn’t appreciate a good history lesson, right? Despite it’s out-of-control humor, you’ll definitely walk out of the movie theater feeling like you’ve learned a thing or two about politics and America.
#3 It’s All About The Underdog
At first you’ll feel indifferent about Marty, but by the end you’ll be rooting for him!
#4 Zach Galifianakis Plays His Most ‘Normal’ Character Yet
Marty has his own strange quirks about him, but he’s not a total weirdo. And by the end of the film, those quirks actually become endearing.
#5 Overall A Star-Studded Cast
Will and Zach aren’t the only stars in the flick. Did we mention Jason Sudeikis, Dan Aykroyd and Dylan McDermott also star in the movie?
The film opens nationwide August 10th, 2012. HollywoodLife.com attended a screening of the film in NYC sponsored by Svedka vodka and hosted by The Peggy Siegal Company.
