SPIRIT OF '76: When Americans from the year 2176 decide to travel back to 1776 to ask the founding fathers for the solutions to their problems, a glitch in the system places them, by mistake, in 1976. Believing themselves to be in 1776, the time travelers attempt to study this "ideal" civilization which includes '70s and '80s icons such as David Cassidy, Leif Garrett, Devo, Moon Unit Zappa and Tommy Chong. Starring Carl Reiner (Ocean's 11, Slums of Beverly Hills), Mark Mothersbaugh (A Guy Thing, Welcome to Collinwood, The Royal Tennenbaums), Olivia D'Abo (TV's The Wonder Years, It Had to Be You), Spirit of '76 provides a close-up look at one of the most unusual decades in history.

DVD special features include:

* Commentary by director Lucas Reiner and Carl Reiner

* Behind the scenes of Spirit of '76

* Additional scenes

* Music video "1976" by Red Kross

* Easter Eggs - Bicentennial Minutes

* Theatrical trailer
