No October surprise here... The Campaign is a big disappointment.
First things first: if you like Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis, you'll enjoy The Campaign, in which they play rival North Carolina candidates competing for a congressional seat in the nation's capital. Going in, the big fear was that the movie would essentially be Ferrell's George W. Bush fighting with Alan from The Hangover for 90 minutes, but Cam Brady (Ferrell) and Marty Huggins (Galifianakis) are their own men for the most part. The two stars clearly have comic chemistry together and they each have shining moments that show off their individual brands of humor.
