It's been five years since Jon Stewart left the world of political satire behind with his departure from The Daily Show - but now he's back with a feature length comedy-drama. Just in time for the run-in to November's 2020 US Presidential election, as luck would have it. Here's how to watch Irresistible and stream the new Jon Stewart and Steve Carell movie online from anywhere.
Released: June 2020
Director: Jon Stewart
Cast: Steve Carrell, Rose Byrne, Chris Cooper, Mackenzie Davis, Topher Grace, Natasha Lyonne
Run time: 1 hr 42 mins
Stream now: Amazon Prime Video (opens in new tab)
Former Daily Show contributor Carell stars in the lead role as Gary Zimmer, a political consultant for the Democrats who gets drawn into a local mayoral race in rural Wisconsin. Gary is convinced his candidate, retired Marine Colonel Jack Hastings (Chris Cooper), can become the town’s first Dem mayor in decades - and bring about a new era for the party across the state.
Standing in his way, however, is Republican counterpart Faith Brewster (Rose Byrne) - who's just as committed to seeing the incumbent campaign maintain the small town's status quo. As the money starts flooding in for both camps, the previously provincial election goes national and, well...we wouldn't want to spoil it, would we?!
Irresistible is now available for VoD streaming via a number of popular services, including Amazon Prime Video (opens in new tab). So while some states may have opened movie theaters recently, the stay-at-home option is there for those who prefer it- or don't yet have the option of going to a public screening. Read on as we explain how to watch Irresistible online from anywhere in the world today.
