Blu-rays for the Weekend: Keeping Up with the Joneses

Zach Galifinakis, Isla Fisher, Jon Hamm and Gal Gadot team up for this hilarious comedy caper about an ordinary suburban couple – Jeff and Karen Gaffney (Galifinakis and Fisher) – who are bewildered by their super-stylish neighbours, Tim and Natalie Jones (Hamm and Gadot). Although, it soon transpires that the Joneses aren’t quite what they seem, and the Gaffneys soon find themselves in the middle of an international espionage plot.

To get you in the mood for Keeping Up with the Joneses, we’ve picked our three favourite Galifinakis films available now on Blu-ray.

The Hangoverthe-hangover

Arguably one of the funniest films of the last decade, The Hangover gives us an uncensored look into the ultimate bachelor party.

Starring alongside Galifinakis is Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Justin Bartha, as well as a cameo from boxer Mike Tyson. The film follows soon-to-be-married Doug Billings (Cooper), his two best friends and his awkward future brother in law (Galifinakis), as they head to Las Vegas for a 24-hour stag party. However, when things get out of hand and they all wake up the next day with no memory, it’s clear that this was no ordinary stag do…

The Blu-ray comes with a number of special features, including audio commentary, an interactive map, music videos and a hilarious gag reel. The Hangover also has two sequels, so why not pick up the special trilogy edition on Blu-ray?

Due Datedue-date

Robert Downey Jr stars as Peter Highman, a straight-laced architect who’s in Atlanta on a business trip. Meanwhile, his wife is back in Los Angeles getting ready to give birth to their first child. What should be a straightforward flight home is ruined after he and a fellow passenger – Ethan Tremblay (Galifinakis) – are thrown off. Highman is then begrudgingly forced to accept a lift across the country with Tremblay, in order to make it back in time for the birth.

The Blu-ray comes with a number of bonus extras, including deleted scenes, gag reel, montages and more.

The Campaign

Two of Hollywood’s other funnymen – Will Ferrell and Jason Sudeikis – team up with Galifinakis in this hilarious political spoof which is particularly topical given the current presidential election.the-campaign

Ferrell plays Democratic Congressman Cam Brady, who’s about to run for his fifth term in office unopposed, until he accidentally leaves an explicit voicemail on the answer machine of a local family.  In an attempt to capitalise on the gaffe, two crooked businessmen convince the son of one of their associates – Marty Huggins (Galifinakis) – to run against Brady.

The Blu-ray comes with a number of supplements, including an extended cut of the film, deleted scenes, and a gag reel.
