AVAILABLE TO OWN AND RENT ON DVD AND BLU-RAY FROM 11TH MAY 2009 ROLE MODELS is original and unique comedy gold not to be missed! Be the first to see the unseen extended version on DVD this May, or double the laughs with the Blu-ray which also features the original theatrical version!

Unconventional salesmen, stuck-in-a-rut Danny and womanising Wheeler, spend their days promoting Minotaur energy drink to school students. Full of self-loathing and driven to delirium after being dumped by girlfriend Beth (Elizabeth Banks), Danny lashes out on an energy drink bender, trashing both the company truck and school property, resulting in the arrest of both him and Wheeler.

Wheeler and Danny are faced with a choice; either do time in jail or clock one hundred and fifty hours as a mentors for troubled children at Sturdy Wings, a program founded by ex–con and unrepentant flirt, Gayle Sweeny (Jane Lynch)…let the fun begin!

These unlikely role models are assigned purposefully by unsympathetic and eccentric Gayle to the most difficult children on offer, making them wish they’d taken for the easier options of jail! Danny is paired with dorky role playing loner, Augie (Superbads Mclovin’ Christopher Mintz-Plasse), whilst Wheeler is the latest victim of hyperactive and foul-mouthed Ronnie (Bobb’e J. Thompson).

A hysterical set of scenarios ensue, as Danny and Wheeler attempt to connect with their mentees. After a string of hilarious failed attempts, finally level ground is found in the form of medieval role playing and the pulling power of the rock band Kiss. However, when the guys foolishly put their young buddies’ wellbeing in jeopardy they face both jail time and the further loss of everyone's respect.

Jam-packed with fantastic quips, hilarious innuendoes and superb performances from the supporting cast, ROLE MODELS is a successful mix of modern slapstick, intelligent humour with a touch of charm. You’ll have a blast watching this bawdy boys-to-men comedy! ROLE MODELS AVAILABLE TO OWN AND RENT ON DVD AND BLU-RAY FROM 11TH MAY 2009.
