- Mint Mobile Plus is a video streaming service that plays only one Ryan Reynolds movie.
- The movie is Foolproof from 2004, which is a badly-reviewed heist film.
- The service is a publicity stunt for Mint Mobile, an MVNO in which Reynolds bought a large stake.
If you feel overwhelmed by the number of video streaming services out there, weâ€™ve got some bad news. A new video streaming service is here called Mint Mobile Plus. To make matters worse, the service only plays one Ryan Reynolds movie. Thatâ€™s right: one movie.
Obviously, Mint Mobile Plus isnâ€™t a serious contender in the video streaming wars. However, it is real: you can actually use the serviceâ€™s web portal for free to watch Foolproof, a 2004 heist film. Keep in mind, though, that thatâ€™s all the service carries, and the movie is pretty awful.
One Ryan Reynolds movie is all you need
In case you didnâ€™t pick up on it, Mint Mobile Plus is not intended to be a real product. Instead, itâ€™s a cute publicity stunt intended to promote Mint Mobile. Reynolds owns a large stake in the wireless MVNO and often promotes it, usually utilizing some offbeat methods such as this.
In a follow-up tweet to Reynoldsâ€™ announcement of Mint Mobile Plus, he slyly suggests that it wonâ€™t last through the weekend. In other words, if youâ€™re in the mood to watch a Ryan Reynolds movie â€” and that one movie happens to be 2004â€™s Foolproof for some reason â€” youâ€™d better get on it quickly. By Monday, thereâ€™s likely to be one less streaming service for us to keep track of.
