SXSW Doc 'Unhung Hero' Determines Whether Size Matters or Not

November 14, 2013

Unhung Hero

While most documentaries tend to take the serious route when chronicling important events, subjects, controversies and more, director Brian Spitz decided to turn his lens towards another story, but not necessarily a soft one. Patrick Moote went viral in the worst way possible. He proposed to his girlfriend on a jumbotron at a UCLA basketball game and the video went viral, hitting TV stations everywhere. Apparently one of the reasons was because he has a small penis. And so, Moote sets out in a documentary called Unhung Hero to determine whether or not the size of the male member really matters. Watch now!

Here's the trailer for Brian Spitz's Unhung Hero, originally from Breaking Glass Pictures (via Film Stage):

When Patrick Moote's girlfriend rejects his marriage proposal at a UCLA basketball game on the jumbotron, it goes viral. Days after she privately reveals why: Patrick’s small penis size. Unhung Hero follows the real life journey of Patrick as he boldly sets out to expose this extremely personal chapter of his life confronting ex-girlfriends, doctors, anthropologists and even adult film stars. From Witch-Doctors in Papua New Guinea to sex museums in Korea, Patrick has a lot of turf to cover on his globe trotting adventure to finally answer the age old question: Does size really matter? The documentary is directed by Brian Spitz, premiered at South by Southwest 2013, hits DVD on November 26th and is now available on Showtime OnDemand.

If he got married he wouldn't have to worry about sex, he'd just be in a cupboard crying like all other married men. Looks an interesting documentary.

Man creates shortest doc. Patrick Moote. "Does size matter?" All the women. "Yes." Credits.

I think I can settle this with an alternative solution: His ex-girlfriend just might be a terrible human being. I don't know his girlfriend, I've never met her in my life... but it's a possibility.

Yup. You said it. That's what I thought.

You don't necessarily need a dick to please a woman!

maybe this is stupid, but everyone knows this is just a publicity stunt by an aspiring actor trying to get noticed right?
