The Campaign - J. Roach

Ferrell and Galifianakis as two opposing candidates for Congress, co-produced by both actors plus Adam McKay and director Jay Roach, the man behind 'Game Change' = I had high hopes for this!

Of course, non-application of the low-expectations principle (sometimes it's just not possible!) is asking for disappointment.

This was fun, obviously, but nowhere near as fun as it could / should / would have been, had it gone a little bit further, taken a little less easy shortcuts and used perhaps not quite as many stereotypes... 
Still, definitely more caustic than most US comedies.
