Director Jay Roach pits Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis against one another in a congressional race for biggest buffoon. Great idea for a comedy, but it makes me wish this was a Christopher Guest mockumentary, ya know?
With that said, however, the cast seems interesting with Jason Sudeikis, Dylan McDermott, Brian Cox, John Lithgow, and Dan Aykroyd in the mix and Jay Roach has proven he can be a capable comedy director. I was also surprised by how much I enjoyed his recent political drama for HBO, Game Change.
In theaters August 10, 2012.
