Funny Movie: Look Out For THE CAMPAIGN Starring Will Ferrell, Zack Galifanakis & Jason Sudeikis

Posted by: cnikky

 

It’s and election year, and while there are many serious issues to debate, there’s always time for a little laughter.  Cue, THE CAMPAIGN, co-starring Will Ferrell,  Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover) and Jason Sudeikis (SNL).  Just the mention of the three of them in the same film should put an automatic smile on your face and a chuckle in your belly.  The three are arguealbly some of the best comedic actors on television and film right now, so you will probably leave the theater shaking your head and telling your friends to see this movie.

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 CAMPAIGN hits theaters on August 10th! Check out the trailer below:
