Danny DeVito and the ensemble cast of The FX original series star in a never-before-seen Christmas-themed special premiering on Blu-ray disc and DVD November 17 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Fans of the show will definitely want to see this!
Here’s the press release:
‘Tis the season to be ill-suited. Pop open a bottle and toast to the most deviant, offensive and unwholesome bar owners in “Philly” as they celebrate the holidays in the raunchiest way possible when the never-before-seen It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia: A Very Sunny Christmas exclusively debuts on Blu-ray Disc and DVD November 17 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Compared to “Seinfeld” as one of the most obscene hilarious shows on television, “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia” combines crude humor with brilliantly unwholesome commentary while touching on highly controversial topics such as politics, abortion and terrorism, in a way that gives “pushing the limits” a new meaning. In the first never-before-seen feature length comedy, follow Mac, Charlie, Dennis, Frank and Dee as they spread their Christmas spirit with inappropriate childhood videos, a bloody encounter with Santa Claus and all the over-the-top, twisted and politically incorrect behavior the city of brotherly love can handle.
With its fifth season set to premiere September 17, the unconventional original series produced by FX Productions, starring creators and writers Rob McElhenney, Glenn Howerton and Charlie Day, as well as comedy legend Danny Devito (“Taxi”) and fan-favorite Kaitlin Olsen, has continued to gain a hardcore fan base with a strong cult following since the series premiere in 1995 and is now up 97% in ratings since its first season.
The It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia: A Very Sunny Christmas Blu-ray Disc and DVD include behind the scenes footage of the cast and crew as they transform Paddy’s Pub into a winter wonderland, home videos of the gang as children celebrating the holidays and a Christmas Carol “Sunny Sing-A-Long.” The Blu-ray Disc will be available for the suggested retail price of $29.99 U.S./$32.99 Canada and the DVD will be available for $26.98 U.S./$37.98 Canada. Prebook is October 21.
Ho, ho, heyooo! Christmas is nearly here and the Paddy’s gang has got the spirit. Well, not really. For them, the holidays have always been a time of trickery, backstabbing, and disappointment. But this year things are going to be different as they are determined to rediscover the joy in Christmas. Join Mac, Charlie, Dennis, Dee and Frank as they embark on a holiday adventure filled with stolen toys, childhood videos, naked elves and a bloody run in with Santa Claus that is guaranteed to blast Christmas spirit all over!
