The Campaign review: As Ludicrous as the Current State of Affairs

Pugs, Not Huggs.

I’d love more than anything else to put The Campaign with Knocked Up, The Forty Year-Old Virgin, and other absurd comedies that seek to entertain more than tell a meaningful story. They have heightened perceptions of reality and feature unrealistic situations just for the hell of it – and in many ways this is what The Campaign relies on to get through it’s story. However, because it’s about American politics, it necessarily causes people to think and make comparisons to how elections play out in real life.
