Universal Pictures Home Entertainment will release the political comedy Irresistible through digital retailers Aug. 18, and on Blu-ray Disc and DVD Sept. 1.
Directed by Jon Stewart, the film stars Steve Carell as Gary Zimmer, top Democratic political consultant who sees an opportunity to win back voters in America’s heartland when a video of a passionate farmer and retired Marine colonel (Chris Cooper) goes viral. After a long, hard day’s work as a farmhand, Gary persuades the farmer to run for mayor of a small town in Wisconsin. However, he soon finds himself squaring off against his brilliant Republican counterpart, Faith Brewster (Rose Byrne), as the election turns into an all-out battle between the national parties.
The cast also includes Mackenzie Davis, Topher Grace and Natasha Lyonne.
The disc and digital editions include more than 30 minutes of bonus content, including deleted and extended Scenes; a gag reel; and the featurettes “Campaign Comedy: The Cast of Irresistible,” “Taking the Lead: Jon Stewart” and the behind-the-scenes vignette “An Irresistible Story.”
