“The Campaign” is one of Will Ferrell’s best and most enjoyable movies. It is true comedy gold with many great scenes. 

The movie is a hilarious take on a congressman battle between two types of candidates, one being a very bold Cam Brady (Will Ferrell) and a more awkward nerdy candidate, Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis). It is a true must watch comedy with many iconic one liners. It has a great story involved and has more background than expected.

An aspect of the movie that was truly well done was the background of the characters. They did a great job creating a good story behind the film and the point of view of both candidates throughout the film. It was a truly well-developed plot and had use of comedic elements. The characters were also very well played by the actors and had a fitting cast.

Another positive aspect of the film was the setting of the story. It was based in North Carolina and did a great job of touching little things about North Carolina. It was a well-depicted congressman race for the state and was well thought out in the selection of the State. Even state accents were used in the film.

The film deserves a rating of 9.5 out of 10. It’s one you can watch over and over. The film is recommended to anybody who loves to laugh.
