YMMV / The Campaign

  • Crosses the Line Twice: The sex tape/campaign ad.
    • The answering machine message that puts Brady on the spot. Really, Cam takes the line and spends his entire day repeatedly crossing it.
    • Some of the things the Huggins boys confess.
    • Marty just outright shooting Cam on the skeet range.
    • Cam getting wounded on a dangerous jungle gym. Sad. Marty having scars all over his body. Hilarious.
  • Genius Bonus: Zach Galifianakis is originally from North Carolina, and his uncle Nick Galifianakis was a well-known U.S. Congressman from the state.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: With the erosion of regulations regarding campaign financing, the movie becomes quite scary knowing that much of the behind-the-scenes tactics depicted are not far off from what actually happens in US elections.
  • Shocking Swerve: What do Cam and Marty get the Motch Brothers on? Aiding and abetting a known international fugitive. One known as Tim Wattley.
  • The Woobie: Marty and his wife both have their moments.
