It’s a funny, oftentimes sweet look at a man who is desperate to do right but can’t help but do wrong. Get the BitTorrent Bundle and unlock the entire movie, script, behind the scenes and more.

    The “click here to unlock” link in the torrent just goes to the bundle page. How do you unlock this bundle?

        Gotcha, thanks! That’s confusing, because the “Click here to unlock” link in What’s-Inside.html from the torrent goes to the bundle page (on without any other indication, whereas other bundles tend to go to a specific unlock page (on, with an unlock=true parameter in the URL).
