Looks funny, though at least slightly predictable for how it may unfold. Still, I'd check it out.

I'll place my bet on the ending:
Spoiler:
Chris Cooper tries to quit the campaign, they do get him back, but while everyone is squabbling, a write-in candidate wins. Or, very slight chance Cooper goes independent and wins on his own.

Nice cast. I do wonder about releasing a big budget, Star-driven political comedy at about the same time of year as Long Shot came out in 2019.

Mediocre reviews so far on Rotten Tomatoes (40%), but I rather enjoyed it. Carell and Byrne had great chemistry. I hope to see them work together again at some point. Natasha Lyonne was hilarious in her very small role. And Chris Cooper was terrific as usual. I'd give this a 7/10 rating.

Seems like a weird time to release this. I'm already inundated with politics, I wouldn't want to infect my movie watching time with MORE politics.

Completely agree - first half was good, second half was better. Very funny.
