“The Campaign
Blu-ray + DVD Combo Pack ($35.99)

Think this year’s presidential race was one long slog of misleading ads, rancorous arguments and distorted truths? Wait till you see the hilarious bag of win-at-all-costs dirt Will Farrell and Zach Galifianakis dump on each other as they seek their state’s Congressional seat in “The Campaign,” which pits a career politician against his naïve opponent in a riotously raunchy race that quickly becomes a three-ring circus. You’ll laugh, but please know: These giggles are for grown-ups. The comedic cast includes Dan Aykroyd and John Lithgow as a couple of millionaire businessmen who want to buy the election, and Dylan McDermott plays an image makeover consultant who really gets into his job. Bonus features include a gag reel, a Line-o-Rama feature (of ad-libbed, edited-together dialogue that didn’t make it into the movie), and deleted scenes.
