The Campaign

(R) ★★☆☆☆

This political farce can’t make up its mind about what it wants to be. It’s a congressional race in North Carolina. Will Ferrell plays Cam Brady, longtime incumbent, cross between John Edwards and Bill Clinton. Zach Galifianakis plays Marty Huggins, a simp, the Republican son of a backroom dealmaker. John Lithgow and Dan Aykroyd are billionaires based on the Koch brothers. Ridiculousness ensues. While there are laughs, there is too much buffoonery, and it comes off as muddled.

Additions (hello, The Smith Center), subtractions (good-bye, Phantom) and relocations (rent that U-Haul, Blue Men) mark the shifting entertainment landscape: Our new performing arts center opens the cultural floodgates, while the Strip welcomes newbies such as Rock of Ages and married music-makers Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, and waves ta-ta to that vengeful masked romantic and our favorite Peep, Holly Madison.
