"You want a holy war, little man?"

As with any comedy, The Campaign is destined to draw mixed reactions since humour is so highly subjective. To be sure, this Will Ferrell/Zach Galifianakis pair-up is not a game-changing comedy like it had the potential to be in sharper hands, but I cannot deny that the film worked for me. Often hilarious and rarely boring thanks to the boundless en... read more

It's a mess!! Not this movie, but in general...

I’ll be honest, as the movie started I was already annoyed that Will Ferrell again resorted to playing the buffoon, A.K.A. Ron Burgundy, except now his name was Cam Brady and he has been an unchallenged four-term Democratic US Representative from North Carolina. In struts (I use that term very lightly) Zach Galifianakis.

To be honest, I wasn't really sure what to expect from this flick but since there was a decent cast involved and since it was available on Netflix, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, even though it didn't reach the level of 'Game Change' (I still have to watch 'Recount'), it was actually a decent political comedy coming from Jay Roach. Indeed, first of all, I have always been fascinated... read more

“To be honest, I wasn't really sure what to expect from this flick but since there was a decent cast involved and since it was available on Netflix, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, even though it didn't reach the level of 'Game Change' (I still have to watch 'Recount'), it was actually a decent political comedy coming from Jay Roach. Indeed, first of all, I have always been fascinated by politics and they gave here a rather dark and cynical view on this subject but it was pretty neat that, even though some of it was quite over-the-top, it was still not really far from what actually might happen in real life. The other thing that I enjoyed was even though Will Ferrell was unfortunately playing again one of his typical morons, his opponent was also a huge idiot played by Zach Ga” read more
