Will Ferrell is one of the most polarizing actors working today. It seems odd to say but if you ask 10 random people whether they love him or hate him you’ll probably see a near 50/50 split every time with very few people taking the “He’s OK I guess” mentality. Strangely that’s exactly the category I fall into; in certain films I think he’s bordering on comedic genius while others are so dreadful I have a hard time finishing them.
Dimwitted congressman Cam Brady is running unopposed for reelection for the fifth straight term. Unbeknownst to him two power hungry CEOs are backing their own candidate, the equally dimwitted and highly manipulable Marty Huggins. The resulting battle of ‘half’ wits takes the nation by storm as they stoop lower and lower to one up the other.
