Time Out says
If you like your satire with Malcolm Tucker bite, you’ll find this toothless. The whole thing hangs around a mega-silly plot involving a plan to turn a South Carolina town into a giant Chinese sweatshop. But if you like your comedy with crass ‘The Hangover’-style gags, you’ll get a kick out of punchlines that literally involve, well… punching. And we’re safe in the hands of two supremely talented comedians. Ferrell, whenever he’s stuck for an answer on the stump, hollers with conviction: ‘America! Jesus! Freedom!’; while Galifianakis does vest-wearing weirdness like no actor on earth.
