The Campaign Film Trailer Review
We have seen Hollywood tackle various political themes, but this time it would be on a more lighter side of things... or is it? When Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis plays as two rival politician in a comedy, you are definitely in for a ride.
We all know that politics is dirty, but it will get even dirtier with Ferrel and Galifianakis. These two politicians will stop at nothing to outplay each other to ultimately win the votes of the people, but at what cost? There are a few scenes shown in the trailer that made me laugh. one in particular is how Ferrel's character does this traditional politician's talk on who are the country's back bone. It was funny because I have seen that same junk over and over again. Absurd and preposterous at a comedic level, in some way this is the reality of politics. Do they really want to serve the people or their ego? But let's not get so serious with these, hopefully The Campaign can both make us (ordinary cistizens) laugh and give some of those in "higher position" some really valuable lessons and pointers on serving the people.
