Movie Reviews

  • we get the political movies we deserve
    2 of 4 by Ty Burr [Boston Globe ]
  • one of the funniest, most acid-tongued comedies of the year
    3 of 5 by Randy Myers [San Jose Mercury News ]
  • it's only the wild-card energy of Ferrell and Galifianakis that keeps you on the ticket
    2.5 of 4 by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone ]
  • it runs out of steam early and then wheezes to an anticlimax
    by Karina Longworth [Village Voice ]
  • in its ramped-up media-farce way, The Campaign leaves no satirical stone unturned
    Review rate : A- by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • holds none of the shots for the right length of time. Is the idea of the bit amusing? Potentially, in a sadistic way, yes. The execution is just lame
    1.5 of 4 by Michael Phillips [Chicago Tribune ]
  • good at being cynically smart about the horrors it's portraying, and gleefully vulgar and absurd about wringing laughs out of those horrors
    4 of 5 by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies ]
  • before the 2012 presidential election has a chance to get really nasty, "The Campaign" vigorously swoops in to satirize how low things can go between a pair of rival congressional candidates
    by Peter Debruge [Variety ]
  • a good idea with no place to go
    2.5 of 5 by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic ]
  • a flimsy political satire that too often mistakes bad taste for comic acuity
    by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • "The Campaign" look much more like "Waiting for Guffman" or "Spinal Tap" than "Step Brothers" or "Talladega Nights"
    Review rate : B- by Laremy Legel [ ]
