UnHung Hero movie scene

Patrick Moote (ctr.) stretches to extreme lengths to compensate for his shortcomings in UnHung Hero.

Described in its press release as “the world’s first “cockumentary,” the 2013 documentary film UnHung Hero follows a young man as he sets off on a quest to learn more about that most vital, fascinating and arguably enigmatic of male appendages.

Said young man is one Patrick Moote, whose marriage proposal is rejected before an arena full of people—and millions of YouTube viewers—along with his ex tells him that his equipment is too small to satisfy her. This sets him off to get to the root of his biggest—and smallest—problem. The film features Moote’s worldwide travels to find answers, his experiments with ‘enlargement methods’ such as pumps, pills and a stretching technique called ‘jelqing,’ and interviews with such notables as porn star Annie Sprinkle to and sex advice columnist Dan Savage.

Not without some funny moments, UnHung Hero, directed by Brian Spitz, generated a notable buzz after its premiere at this year’s SXSW Film Festival.

The DVD of the movie contains an hour-plus of bonus features.
