In Theaters: August 10th
"I think the timing for this one is ideal," understates director Jay Roach. He's talking about The Campaign, a political comedy that makes a perfect run-up to the November elections. August usually produces one surprise hit. I'm betting The Campaign is it. How do you beat Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis playing dirty politics to win a congressional seat? Alexander Payne used a high school campaign to skewer hypocrisy in Election. And Roach (HBO's Recount and Game Change) is just the satirist to raise the stakes with the help of two comic icons.
