We laughed (at how bad the movie was), we cried (because we didn't see a different movie), we kissed eight bucks (or ten or twelve or sixteen, depending upon the format) good-bye!
Stale jokes, missing plots, phone-in performances...too often this summer movie season, we found ourselves scratching our heads in wonder at how actors and directors we have come to respect could have strayed so far off course. We probably should have gone back to the box office and demanded a refund for some of the stinkers we endured this summer. If you feel the same way, vent your frustration by helping us rate the Top 10 Worst Movies of the 2012 summer movie season.

With politics dominating the news and even infiltrating the cineplex — Jay Roach's political comedy The Campaign starring Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis is currently in theaters — it's hard for us to not think about politics and presidential candidates. Since we're obsessed with movies, we also can't help but wonder when we're going to see another actor take up residence in the White House, à la our 40th president, Ronald Regan. With this pressing question on our minds, we took to the streets to ask moviegoers which actors would make good presidential material. Some of the answers were not too surprising, while others left us scratching our heads in wonder. Watch the video below and then tell us which actor you think would make a good president by using the Comments section below. Posted 08.26.12 by BrentJS

Silly comedy is decidedly a strong point for both Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis, but does The Campaign give the actors the right material to showcase their talents? Movie reviewer Leonard Maltin takes a closer look at the comedy that lampoons political elections to find out whether or not this movie stays on message and connects with voters.

The country may be divided on Romney vs. Obama, but we're sure people on both sides can unite in the name of comedy. Politics is rarely funny but we have a feeling Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis will make us laugh in The Campaign. In the Jay Roach comedy, Ferrell and Galifianakis play political rivals.
Watch Richard Roeper's review of The Campaign and find out why he's calling it "one of the best comedies of the year." Posted 08.10.12 by Chris
This weekend, Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis will square off on the big screen for the first time in the comedy The Campaign (formerly Dog Fight and Rivals). Ferrell plays Camden "Cam" Brady, a longtime North Carolina Congressman, with Galifianakis as his newcomer rival Martin "Marty" Huggins. According to the movie's stars, it may be the first comedy of its kind.
"I don't know of any kind of big, R-rated political comedy," Galifianakis told Hollywood Dailies' own Patrick Stinson about the movie. "I don't know if there is one." (1992's Bob Roberts comes to mind as far as a R-Rated political comedy, though the scale was considerably smaller.) more from our exclusive interview >> Posted 08.09.12 by Ryan
Child abuse is no laughing matter... except when Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis are involved. The two kings of comedy team up in director Jay Roach's (Dinner for Schmucks) new comedy, The Campaign (formerly Dog Fight and Rivals), a timely lampoon of politics in this presidential election year. Hollywood Dailies' own Patrick Stinson recently sat down with the two actors to discuss some of the over-the-top hijinks in the movie that caused him to "soil" himself, such as the campaign trail photo op that results in "Cam" Brady (Ferrell) slugging a baby instead of his opponent, "Marty" Huggins (Galifianakis). watch the interview clip >> Posted 08.09.12 by BrentJS
