Welcome to the world of Irresistible and its alternative ending.

The new ending

As the final act of Irresistible unfolds, the small town of Deerlaken is buzzing with anticipation for the upcoming mayoral election. Gary Zimmer, the Democratic strategist played by Steve Carell, has been working tirelessly to help the local candidate, Jack Hastings, played by Chris Cooper, win against the Republican incumbent mayor.

The campaign has been filled with twists and turns, but nothing could prepare the audience for what happens next.

On the eve of the election, a mysterious figure arrives in Deerlaken. It is revealed to be none other than Faith Brewster, the Republican strategist played by Rose Byrne. She approaches Gary with an unexpected proposition: a truce.

Faith explains that she has grown tired of the divisive nature of politics and wants to join forces with Gary to create a new kind of campaign, one that focuses on unity and cooperation rather than party lines.

Gary, initially skeptical, agrees to the truce, and together they devise a plan to surprise the town. On election day, instead of competing against each other, Gary and Faith join forces to support both candidates.

They organize a joint rally where Jack and the incumbent mayor, played by Brent Sexton, stand side by side, delivering speeches that emphasize the importance of working together for the betterment of the community.

The townspeople are taken aback by this unexpected turn of events. They witness the two opposing candidates, once bitter rivals, now united in their shared vision for Deerlaken. The rally becomes a symbol of hope and a call for a new era of politics.

As the votes are counted, it becomes clear that the joint campaign has struck a chord with the voters. The election results are a tie, and the town is faced with a unique situation. Instead of resorting to a runoff or recount, the candidates decide to share the mayoral position, alternating their roles every two years.

This unprecedented arrangement ensures that both parties have a voice in the town's governance and encourages collaboration rather than division.

The film ends with a montage of Jack and the incumbent mayor working together, implementing policies that benefit the town. The once divided community begins to heal, and the people of Deerlaken become an example for the rest of the country.
