The Campaign is a hilarious, rambunctious mockery of modern politics that pits two of today’s better cinematic comedians in a hilarious joust as they jockey for a congressional seat. The movie pulls no punches as it pokes fun at each facet that has become associated with politics. Sex scandals, debates, and even politicians kissing babes are all incorporated with a jocular approach. The film stars Will Ferrell (The Other Guys), Zach Galfinikas (The Hangover pt. 2), Jason Sudekis (Horrible Bosses), Dylan McDermott (Nobody Walks), Katherine LaNasa (Buttwhistle), Sarah Baker (Sweet Home Alabama), Brian Cox (RED), Dan Akroyd (Yogi Bear), John Lithgow (Rise of the Planet Apes), and Karen Maruyama (The Bucket List).
The Campaign is a perversely jocular farce that induces the zany touch of one of today great comedic actors as he applies his own wildly unique perspective on modern politics. This film has a takes no prisoners approach and it holds back nothing as it addresses the cutthroat world of a congressional campaign. Its stocked full of vulgarities, obscenities, and a multitude of outrageous scenes that humorously exaggerates on all of the scandals and misfortunes that political candidates have encountered over the years.
It clearly demonstrates no moral compass as it undoubtedly uses anything to induce a laugh. The Campaign’s unrelenting assault on the world of politicians uses a number of scenes that embellishes on the winner takes all attitude that has become associated with politics. Some of its best scenes are when it goes from zany to outrageous as Cam Brady punches babes, dogs, and loses every once of his ethics in pursuit of winning.
The film boasts a talented cast. Will Ferrell is at his comedic best as Congressman Cam Brady. Brady is obnoxious, brash, and overtly arrogant but it makes for a tremendous offset to Zach Galfinikas as candidate Marty Huggins who is the exact opposite. Galfinikas’s portrayal of the more reserve Huggins is the perfect counter balance to Ferrell. The pair’s
Jason Sudekis, Dylan McDermott, and Karen Maruyama all add to the jocular debauchery known as the Campaign. Maruyama as the Asian waitress, Mrs Yao, gives a scene stealing, standout performance in extremely limited minutes.
The Campaign is as outrageous as it comes when it comes to films. It has a larger than life take on politics, consequently, it really addresses the negative side of politics. Despite being a complete farce it really delves into a what really drives some political ventures, money. At the heart of the film is a heartwarming message about truth and the one’s character which really offsets some of the methods that The Campaign uses to deliver its comedy. Overall, it’s a good time and a lot of fun. Forget the serious subject matter that it uses as a basis for the film and watch one of Will Ferrel’s best characters at work.
