Dan O'Neill60 - Though it’s satire never fully takes a bite, The Campaign still features a fun cast and a funny bunch of moments that are worth to see, if only for the two leads themselves.

CinemaVisitor Erik25 - It is one of those satires that tries hard to take the piss out of everything and ends up being ridiculous, tiring and boring. Skip it!
