Movie Review Monday

My book tour continues with a stop here.  Check it out!

I also have another novella out.  You can access it here.  It's only 99 cents for the ebook, you have nothing to lose!

Drake Steng had it all: a professional football career, money, and looks. Finding women wasn't a problem, having a relationship was. He thought he found true love when he was 12, but as a boy, how was he to know? He never had the courage to find out, and she slipped from his grasp. When Evie walks back into his life years later, he gets a second chance to discover true love, but are Evie and Drake fated to be together or will he lose his courage and lose her again?
OK, finally, on to the movie!

The Campaign (2012)

I could take or leave this film.  My spouse wanted to watch it though, so we did.  It wasn't a complete waste of an evening, it was a nice, mindless film to relax to.

I liked the fact that it pointed out how ridiculous campaigns get.  I don't want to ruin anything for you if you haven't seen it, so I'm not going to give examples.  If you have seen it, you'll know exactly what I'm talking about.  While in real life candidates don't do the porn thing, it still gets pretty bad.  And the really sad part is that people believe the blatant lies told in the ads.  Really?  Go out and do some research, find the answers on your own, don't believe everything you see!  All I can say is that I can't wait until after tomorrow, then all this silliness will be behind us and we can cringe at the future.

The film had its funny moments, but I wasn't laughing the whole way through.  It's a good thing it's only 85 minutes long.  I couldn't have handled too much more.  If you like Will Ferrell and Zach Galifiankis, I recommend watching it.  If you don't like them, then it will be a form of torture for you.
