Comedy superstars Will Ferrell (Step Brothers, Get Hard) and Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover, Due Date) face off as rival Southern politicians in a small South Carolina congressional district in this electoral comedy directed and produced by comedy's go-to director Jay Roach (Dinner for Schmucks, Meet the Parents, Austin Powers). Satirizing the "circus of modern-day politics," this congressional comedy timed to the 2012 presidential election offers up a landslide of laughs.




  • Started strong and faded faster than a politician's promises the day after a race.

    The premise was good and there was promise of a hilarious movie but somehow it slowed and the writing went dark. Didnt enjoy it at all.

  • Just crude

    By GregH
    We got about 20 minutes into it before we had to shut it off. It is sexually crude and contains other bad imagery, expressed by children as well as adults. Teenage boy humor I guess.

    By Fil-000
    An extremely funny movie, depicting the hypocrisy behind elections with lots of humor, yet true to reality. Must be open minded to watch it...
  • Hysterical!

    By Nick Bray
    It was kinda inappropriate at the beginning (rated R), but it was funny inappropriate humour all throughout.
  • Very funny

    By BostonDog
    I find this movie just as funny each time I watch it.
  • Accawesome

    I rented this movie for a car ride and ended up loving it. The hilarity in this movie comes from its AMAZING characters, surprise cameos, and the fact that this movie is more reality based then you might think at first glance. One of my favorite movies so far will watch anything with these two characters. P.S some of the scene aren't really family friendly (the children listening to music during the movie among others) 5/5
