Will Farrell and Zach Galifianakis star in this comedy about two of the most inept idiots to ever run for Senate.
When long-term congressman Cam Brady (Will Ferrell) commits a major public gaffe before an upcoming election, a pair of corrupt millionaires plot to put up a rival candidate to gain influence over their North Carolina district. They choose naive Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis), director of the local tourism center. At first, Marty appears to be the unlikeliest possible choice but, with the help of a cutthroat campaign manager and his family’s political connections, he soon becomes a contender. As Election Day closes in, the two are locked in a dead heat, with insults quickly escalating to injury until all they care about is burying each other, in this mud-slinging, back-stabbing, home-wrecking comedy.

Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren and Randy Couture are reunited in this new action hit.
The Expendables team takes on some new members when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) enlists them for a seemingly simple job. It looks like an easy paycheck for Stallone and his band of old-school mercenaries. But when things go wrong and one of their own is viciously killed, the Expendables are compelled to seek revenge in hostile territory where the odds are stacked against them. Bent on payback, the crew cuts a swath of destruction through opposing forces, wreaking havoc and shutting down an unexpected threat in the nick of time—six pounds of weapons-grade plutonium—enough to change the balance of power in the world. But that’s nothing compared to the justice they serve against the villainous adversary who savagely murdered their brother. That is done the Expendables way!
“Expendables 2” is showing Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Starlite Drive-in Theatre. 103 minutes. It is rated R for strong, bloody violence throughout.
