'Boyhood' producer offers 'time back guarantee' to anyone who does not enjoy film
John Sloss will perform "customary chores" for ticket buyers
John Sloss, producer on new film Boyhood, has offered movie-goers their money back if they do not like the film.
Boyhood was released in cinemas last week (July 11) and features scenes shot by director Richard Linklater across a period of 12 years as lead actor Ellar Coltrane went through adolescence. The film has gained rave reviews from critics and fans alike yet Sloss is still offering a guarantee to those who beg to differ.
Writing on a mail-out (via The Hollywood Reporter) to people signed up to his mailing list, Sloss states:
"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."
He added: ""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."
Boyhood also features Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette.
