Director: Jay Roach. Cast: Will Ferrell, Zach Galifianakis, Jason Sudeikis, Dylan McDermott, John Lithgow, Dan Aykroyd, Brian Cox, John Goodman. 85 min. Rated R. Comedy.
Hilarious rivalry between two clueless political candidates, so closely following what we see every day on TV (which makes the satire so lovingly poignant). Jay Roach of Austin Powers and Meet the Parents fame climaxes his style of crude jokes and creative word games, and there couldn't have been anyone better than Ferrell and Galifianakis to deliver them. This movie has some gut-splitting funny moments - and you're hearing all this from someone who isn't much of a comedy genre guy.
