When I saw that the HD Amazon Streaming version of “The Campaign” was on last inaugural weekend, I decided that there were very few things that $11.99 could buy that I would enjoy more. And it couldn’t be worse than that (non-ironic) Spanish foreign language comedy I saw.
The movie ranges somewhere between “Step Brothers” and “Blades of Glory”— that is to say, fair to middling. What really stole the show was a hilarious and multi-lingual Karen Maruyama as Mrs. Yao. I’m not going to ruin the joke, but let just say that she’s quite the personification of all annoyed ethnic housekeepers amidst a movie about two white dudes at war.
