Bill C’s Review – 2.5 out of 5
I had high expectations for this Will Ferrell/Zach Galifianakis satire. It’s a timely film taking on our sad acrimonious political environment where politicians don’t honestly talk about the issues and say whatever is necessary to get elected with two very funny actors. While this had some good laughs I didn’t think the satire was biting enough and thought the filmmakers often went for the cheap laugh.
This film also lost a quarter of a point for breaking Bill I’s cardinal rule of film advertising by using the funniest moment of the film in the coming attractions/TV ads.
