'Boyhood' Producer Offers to Perform Chores for Those Who Don't Like Film
By Aaron Crouch
Boyhood producer John Sloss is so confidant viewers will enjoy the new Richard Linklater film that he’s offering a “Time Back Guarantee.”
In a tongue-in-cheek email to his mailing list, Sloss offered a to perform chores for those not thrilled by the film, which opened in New York and Los Angeles this weekend.
"In recognition of this auspicious event, I am offering any recipient of the email (strictly non-transferable) my patented ‘Time Back Guarantee,’ last offered, I believe, in connection with the theatrical release of Exit Through The Gift Shop,” Sloss wrote in the email.
Sloss, founder of Cinetic Media, went on to detail what that guarantee entails.
"That’s right, if you are not absolutely thrilled by Boyhood and/or consider it not to be a good use of your time, I will give you that time back by performing any of your customary chores for up to 2 hours and 43 minutes,” Sloss wrote.
Sloss may be making a safe bet, as Boyhood, which stars Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette, and Ellar Coltrane, is receiving strong reviews.
