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

After Cam is arrested, a reporter approaches him and asks "You were charged with drunk driving. Is it true you blew a 1.4?" A BAC of 1.4 would almost surely be lethal; at the very least, Cam would surely have been hospitalized, not walking around talking with reporters. It's possible that the character simply misspoke, meaning instead to say 0.14 which is above the legal limit for driving in all states and a much more believable BAC value. See more »
There is no need to use 1000 words to review this film. One word suffices; awful. Base, totally lacking in nuance of any sort, this film not only disappoints on every level (bar the 'punched a baby' moment)but has been marketed and advertised in a misleading way. I attended expecting a satiric comedy centred on election campaigns (how it's advertised) and watched a boring, un-funny and ultimately repulsive film, until I walked out. The scene where Will Ferrel's character has sex in the fridge (????) with his opponents wife is gross and vile, not to mention completely unbelievable; OK it's a comedy but even in the context of this film this 'storyline' is massively ridiculous as is everyone's reactions to the event. I did not tick the spoiler alert button at the top as there is nothing in this film to spoil. Spend you money elsewhere; this film is just totally horrible.
