Two salesmen whose careers have been torpedoed by the digital age find their way into a coveted internship at Google, where they must compete with a group of young, tech-savvy geniuses for a shot at employment.
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

A few cheap laughs in this movie but ultimately it's a piece of garbage. This is what you get from Hollywood, these days, when the subject matter is "politics". The "film" is set in North Carolina so you get the typical NYC/LA stereotype that everyone from that state is a bible thumping, gun toting booger eating inbred moron. And Will Farrell's obscene character? More of the same. I know this was intended to be an over-the-top farce but it contains no wit, no real humor, and nothing clever; just non-stop gutter jokes. Of course, the moral of the story is that evil corporations, the republicans, and money are the root of all evil. This movie accurately represents the intellect, morality, and character of Hollywood today. It's basically waste that should be flushed.
