Ruthless and cynical, political life is not one for the faint of heart, as North Carolina congressman Cam Brady (Will Ferrell
) finds out. With election day fast approaching, he accidentally ends up drunk dialling the wrong people. Having left an explicit message on the phone recorder of a traditional Christian family, he becomes an easy target for the rival party. With daft Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis
) standing up against him, Brady tries all he can to recover his credibility after that tragic initial faux pas. As the debate escalates, these unlikely rivals become entangled in a hilarious power struggle, making The Campaign one of the most entertaining political comedies of recent years.
