The Campaign:

I just saw this movie and I thought it was great! I was suprised to find that no one made a thread about it, so here you go.

I am serious. This is my serious face.
Ditto. It was absolutely hilarious. My favorite jokes were: "FILIPINO TILT-A-WHIRL OPERATORS ARE THIS NATION'S BACKBONE", "GET SOME AMERICAN DOGS YOU COMMIE!", "Huggins couldn't take care of his wife... so I did", "YOU CAN'T MAKE ME GO TO RAINBOWLAND!", and "If my son calls you dad, I FUCK YOUR WIFE", but the film was consistently funny all the way through, even if the last thirty minutes had a somewhat more serious tone.

I also like how some of the dialogue was changed to avoid Trailer Joke Decay.

I'm kind of surprised that it doesn't have a trope page.

I saw it. Good fun. The baby punch was a classic. And it was repeated well with doggy punch right after Rainbow Land. Commie dogs were one of my favorite jokes.
Will kill you
Movie was fucking hilarious.

I haven't seen it, but it's weird seeing Zack Galifianakis without a beard in all the promitional stuff.
 
I enjoyed it. However, I was surprised to see that parents had brought their kids in the movie theater to watch the film as well. The kiddies thought the baby and dog punches were hilarious.

[up]When are parents going to learn that just because Will Ferrel is in a movie, doesn't mean it's family-friendly?
Of course, don't you know anything about ALCHEMY?!- Twin clones of Ivan the Great
HAPPY, RIGHT?!
[up] Apart from Megamind, when did Will Ferrel do anything that was family friendly?
I seriously can't think of any clever joke.

[up], [up] [up] Hmm. Point taken then. Still don't get why parents take their kids to see his other movies though.

Just saw it. Thought it was good, but I would have preferred it if there was more of an even competition between Brady and Huggins, instead of it being a Curb-Stomp Battle for whichever guy has that Wattley guy on his side (Wattley eating Cheerios was hilarious, though).

And I want to see a Real Life politician try and spin a sex scandal like Cam Brady. wink

I don't. O_O

I don't want to see any of my politicians getting it on.

Movie was hilarious though.

By the power of geek!
This was one of the funniest movies I have seen in a long time. Why don't we have a tropes page for it?
Look at me still talking when there's science to do

Hi.
I kind of made one. It's only one sentence for now, though.

Let me help out a little
Don't believe yourself, believe in me.

Believe in the JR who believes in you.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
