John Beckwith and Jeremy Grey, a pair of committed womanizers who sneak into weddings to take advantage of the romantic tinge in the air, find themselves at odds with one another when John meets and falls for Claire Cleary.
When Cam Brady (D-NC), a four-term Congressman, becomes a liability, the Motch brothers (think Koch brothers) recruit Marty Huggins, the son of a Republican heavy hitter, to run against him and be their vehicle to establish factories in the district that will import cheap Chinese labor. Trouble is, Marty is a lightweight, so his makeover falls to consultant Tim Wattley. The race tightens as Cam constantly shoots himself in the foot, while the prospect of winning also changes Marty and his family's dynamics. Meanwhile, Cam plays dirty, and Marty cottons on to the Moches' grand plan. What options do the rich have to get their way? Written by
Cam Brady's slogan "taking care of business" is more than a simple reference to a hit song, it's a promise to look out for corporate interests before citizens. It is also a reference to Scott Walker (of WI) who used the slogan "Wisconsin is open for business". He was heavily funded by the Koch brothers which the Motch brothers are mentioned to represent.

At the end, when accepting the congressional office that Cam Brady has declined, Marty Huggins says that he is going to "...end Daylight Savings Time. I hate when it gets dark early." In fact, DST extends the daylight so that it does not get dark early, but later. See more »
After reading many reviews, i have to agree that this is a technically a bad film. The humor in this movie is very raw and crude (which doesn't bother me), and it has a very simple storyline. I was ready to give this movie a rating of a 5 or below until i stopped looking into the movie too much, and saw it for what it is. The purpose of a comedy is to make people laugh, and that is exactly what myself and the rest of the theater did for the majority of the movie. The movie is so relevant as well with the upcoming presidential elections, and i feel this movie helps take the edge of the brutality of the current Obama vs. Romney.
If you just want to see a simple movie that will make you laugh without having to think about the plot, then see the movie.
