I fail to see the big deal. It's a movie.

Peace and Godspeed.

I wish I was in India now. I'd make that money easy.

Seriously.

Can't you guys appreciate great promotional gags? I think this one is a hoot!

Tell the truth: aren't you even a wee bit curious about the movie?

Nope Stone, not the slightest bit curious about the movie. If I could get in touch with the guy, the 10 grand would be mine. It's just a movie, easy money.

Peace and Godspeed.

But you don't really think there is a 10K reward, do you?

They announce the award, then rig it all up...you know, with "rules" and "qualifications...so that it's impossible to claim the reward. It's just a publicity stunt.

And "just a movie" doesn't always mean it's easy to watch. Back in the day, my brother-in-law and I used to drink together and watch horror films. I could (still can, with the qualification that follows) take [i]anything[/i], just about.

So one day he brought home a case of beer, a bottle of scotch, a bucket of chicken, and some film recommended to him by the guy at the video store.

We put it on, and after thirty minutes we had no appetite for chicken. We turned it off, not because we were scared, but because we had no desire to ruin the rest of our appetites (for the beer and scotch).

"Just a movie" is relative.
