Incorrect Movie Showing on Roku tv app

I keep trying to watch the movie, The Campaign with Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis but another movie shows up. I removed and re-installed The Roku app on my Hisense Roku TV and even restarted the TV but it keeps doing the same thing.

Re: Incorrect Movie Showing on Roku tv app


It does appear that The Campaign (2012) starring Will Ferrell as indicated by the movie poster and description is incorrectly playing "Campaign" (2003), a documentary/movie by Taylor Steele about surfing for free on the Roku Channel, Tubi, and Pluto.

Sometimes unsure in these instances if the Movie Poster and description are incorrect, or if the actual link to the movie is incorrect.  Sometimes happens when movie titles are similar in the Roku Searches.

Bringing to the attention of @RokuDanny-R , @RokuKariza-D , and @RokuMary-F to investigate.

If this is happening on all three services, my guess is they are all obtaining this movie from the same source, and that the source has grabbed the description for the wrong title from some database.
