ILBFilms.com Film Review: The Campaign
Review by: Martin Winters www.vortekfilms.webs.com for www.ilbfilms.com

Review

This movie shows the comedic, and most often, stupid side to politics. The movie’s humor was well received by viewers. It was funny, rude, bizarre, and absolutely enjoyable. The movie accurately portrayed how such politicians are often seen and heard in the media, making the movie more realistic and even funnier as it went on. It managed to pull back the curtains and show us what these congressmen do behind closed doors to win elections – but in a very comedic and over-the-top fashion.

Will Ferrell played his part fantastically well. To me, he kind of looked like George W. Bush, due to his overall appearance, speech and posture, but in a Will Ferrell kind of way. If Hollywood wanted to do a movie on George W. Bush and needed someone to play the man himself, you know who my vote would go towards.

Zach Galifianakis was not too bad in this movie either, though, to me, he was not as entertaining as Will Ferrell’s character was.  Zach Galifianakis’s character was timid, sensitive and kind of feminine-like. But due to the help and support of others - including his own beliefs - Zach Galifianakis’s character was able to rise up and face the mad dog himself, Will Ferrell, in a neck-to-neck battle for a seat in congress to represent their town.

The movie also featured a few other familiar comedy faces such as: John Lithgow, Dan Aykroyd, Jason Sudeikis, and even a special appearance by John Goodman. A nice little star cast indeed.

Overall: a pretty funny movie that does not take itself seriously in any way. It had a few laughable moments with a great cast of actors and actresses attached to the project. It was your typical Will Ferrell movie but much better than a few others he had done.

RATING: 8/10

Comments
