The Campaign

I was really excited to see my favorite comedic actor, Will Ferrell, return to his bread and butter of outrageous comedy. He plays an incumbent Congressman from North Carolina running unopposed until Zac Galifianakis’ character throws his hat into the ring at the last minute.

As a former political science major, I enjoyed the complete mockery of the electoral process that this film provides. If you have seen a few of Ferrell’s and Galifianakis’ movies, then there are not a whole lot of surprises in store. I felt as though I could predict when Ferrell’s ridiculous tirades were coming and when Galifianakis would get a laugh with his patented effeminate gait and mannerisms. That said, I’m always up for a laugh and it delivered that. Completely unrealistic and over the top, but that’s what we have to come to expect and enjoy out of these two.

Not a great movie overall, but I enjoyed it and give it 3 ¼ out of 5 BeachBalls.

    • Great article, well wtrtien I loved it. My thoughts exactly, you would think after all these years he’d wait to hear the producer say we’re clear before opening his mouth.This hurts. It hurts his reputation. It hurts when I hear him now. We all know guys like Grant Napier really struggle through long seasons and hate calling terrible games.. But they are professionals and make us think they love it. Krukow showed us who he really is which is fine if I were having a beer with him.. not on CSN

  1. The beach ball system is unparalleled in the movie critic industry. I think it is the clear choice over that, mediocre at best, “star” system. Here is a review request:

    Just watched Jerry Maguire again tonight, it better make your top 10. How many beach balls ya got? I’m going 4.5

    • Can you put a spot on this sight so people can sign their chelrdin up for sports online just in case they can’t make it to the sign ups in person?

  2. I thought this movie was hilarious! It was way over the top but very funny!

    I love that you started a blog on all the movies you watch and rating the movies with BeachBalls was a clever idea! Hope your recovery is going well!

  3. Dermatology didn’t interest me that much until I took Clinicals 1 and we wecahtd a video of the Medical Assistant cleaning a wound and we did competencies on how to send lab tests off, how to clean wounds, how to look for infection, and how to remove staples and that all fascinated me. It seems like in dermatology, you could get a variety of skin situations and they are all important. I think that I would be more involved with the patient and assist the physician a lot which I like.I think the physician I would least want to work for would be a urologist just because I don’t think I would get to do as much on the clinical side besides taking vitals but I am interested in many specialties so I am eager to hear what you are all interested in as well!

    pores of the dispaintation, the practice’s website.
