The Campaign (4-Aug-2012)

Director: Jay Roach

Writers: Adam McKay; Chris Henchy; Shawn Harwell

Music by: Theodore Shapiro

Producers: Will Ferrell; Adam McKay; Jay Roach; Zach Galifianakis

Keywords: Comedy, Election

After an obscene phone call from long-unopposed North Carolina Congressman Cam Brady sinks his poll numbers, two billionaire brothers field a fresh candidate. Some laughs but this blunt political satire could have been much funnier. Lithgow and Aykroyd are not effectively used, and there is a lot of Ron Burgundy in Cam Brady. The two pug dogs are good.
