A naive, small town tourism director (Zach Galifianakis) takes on a popular North Carolina congressman Cam Brady (Will Ferrell) in this laugh out loud comedy. The congressman’s wealthy backers are upset after he screws up on live TV and decide they need a new candidate to put in power. They pick Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis) because they think he’ll be easy to control. They send Tim Wattley (Dylan McDermott), a ruthless campaign manager, to lead Marty’s team to victory. As Marty and Cam fight for votes they learn about what they are both really capable of.
This movie was great fun to watch! It’s light hearted with plenty of hilarious moments. Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis play off of each other brilliantly and Dylan McDermott is the perfect psycho campaign manager.
