The official trailer for ‘The Campaign’ starring Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis as political rivals in a race for Congress in a North Carolina district. Ferrell plays incumbent congressman Cam Brady who makes a major public goof that forces a bunch of wealthy CEOs to put up a rival for his seat in Congress in the form of Galifianakis’ Marty Huggins, the director of the local Tourism Center.
Ferrell’s comic turns are hit and miss at times and Galifianakis has never really matched that first global smack in the face that was The Hangover but this pitches them more positively than in previous incarnations and kinda to their strengths. It’s also not a sports movie which is an obvious plus in Will Ferrell’s corner. Add to that punching babies in the face this might be a winner.
