About The Campaign

The Campaign, a 2012 political satire film directed by Jay Roach, stars Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis as two candidates vying for a congressional seat in North Carolina. The film takes a humorous look at the corrupt and often ridiculous nature of American politics, with Ferrell's character, the incumbent congressman, resorting to dirty tactics and Galifianakis' character, a naive and bumbling newcomer, struggling to keep up.

Despite mixed reviews, The Campaign received praise for its timely commentary on the state of American politics. Rolling Stone's Peter Travers called it "a raucous, timely satire that skewers the absurdity of our political system," while The New York Times' A.O. Scott wrote, "The Campaign is a broad, sometimes clumsy, but generally effective satire of the state of American politics."

Ferrell and Galifianakis' performances were also lauded, with The Hollywood Reporter's Todd McCarthy stating, "Ferrell and Galifianakis are a natural comic team, with Ferrell's brashness and Galifianakis' oddball persona playing off each other to great effect."

Overall, The Campaign may not be the most subtle or nuanced political satire, but it delivers plenty of laughs and a pointed critique of the American political system.
