Weak plot, but funny in places
Verified purchase
I thought the plot was a bit too silly and unrealistic for my liking, even for a Hollywood comedy. It also makes virtues out of attitudes that I believe are bad in scoiety.

However, it was very funny in places. If you enjoy vulgar humour, you will get the occasional laugh.

At 1hr 15 min, the movie was mercifully short.

Love this film SO much!
Verified purchase
I am a huge Will Ferrell fan and this is one of my faves. It’s got everything! I love it so much.
If you’re having a bad day, put this on and you will soon be feeling very happy and you may even forget why you were feeling sad.

VERY AMERICAN, very crude, quite a true representation.
Verified purchase
VERY AMERICAN. The good bits, its an unfortunately realistic representation of American politics and campaign tactics, and has a smattering of funny bits, unfortunately its predictable, crude and not as funny as you'd expect.

very good funny
Verified purchase
I liked the funny parts best when they did good jokes and I laughed. sometimes they were very rude and did the sex jokes and I laughed even when they did the naughty bad sex jokes. the naughty bad sex jokes was my favourites.
