THE CAMPAIGN (2012, Jay Roach): 5/10
A few decent laughs, but the actual 2012 Republican presidential primary had much funnier jokes.
Roach’s other 2012 political film (GAME CHANGE) was equally mediocre but stung a bit more specifically. And the character of Mrs. Yao, the Asian woman forced to do over-the-top racist Negro and Hispanic voices tipped the scales in the negative for me. And in the end credits, did they really do another Dylan Mc-Dermot Mulroney joke? Sigh.
