In 2020, we saw the launches of numerous streaming services from Quibi to HBO Max to Peacock. And today, actor Ryan Reynolds launched his own service, Mint Mobile+. And it’s the most straightforward and funniest service to date–it’s certainly the funniest.
Mint Mobile is a cell phone service, and Mint Mobile+ is a streaming service. However, the service only streams one movie, Reynold’s 2003 film Foolproof for free. The actor revealed a video for the new service on Twitter, which you can check out below.

Believe it or not, this is all real. The Mint Mobile+ website exists and you can stream a DVD-quality version of Foolproof. The film follows a group of friends that plan heists but never actually carry them out. The group is blackmailed into pulling off one of these heists by a local gangster. Aside from Reynolds, the movie also stars Kristin Booth (Orphan Black), Joris Jarsky (October Faction), and Sean Sullivan (Umbrella Academy).
