Watch: It's Dinner Time In Restricted Trailer For 'The Campaign' With Will Ferrell & Zach Galifianakis

With a couple weeks to go before “The Campaign” hits theaters, the Warner Bros. marketing department is beginning the home stretch to get moviegoers to the ballot box box office for the Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis comedy. And they’re now letting audiences see why the movie landed an R-rating.

A new restricted trailer has dropped for the film and it’s, unfortunately, mildly amusing at best. It mostly centers around a dinner sequence where the two candidates — Cam Brady (Ferrell) and Marty Huggins (Galifianakis) — both reach out to their families to get closer with them in the heat of the race. There’s lots of talk of penises and pubic hair, which, frankly, seems a bit stale all around, and nothing in the trailer delivers the kind of big yuks we’d expect from these two. And then there’s the baby-punching scene. Again.

Hopefully the good stuff will be in the movie, because if this is the best they got, we’re not that excited, which is a bummer considering how much we love these two guys. “The Campaign” hits on August 10th.
