The Big Sick

The Big Sick is one of the best movies of the year and exactly the sort of movie you might want to share with family during the holiday season. It's available for free to anybody that subscribes to Amazon's Prime service, but as it turns out, there may be some alternative methods for viewing the movie, though they're less family-friendly than the movie itself. Kumail Nanjiani, the star and co-writer of the movie revealed on Christmas Eve that the film was available in full for free as long as you were willing to check out adult website PornHub.

It's far from uncommon to see Hollywood movies show up on sites like PornHub. The sheer volume of video available helps hide the pirated movies among the porn. The one caveat to the whole endeavor is that the in order to help hide the movies, they're never labeled properly, which makes them difficult to find.

Unfortunately, a cursory glance at the site, which I did entirely for work purposes, stop looking at me like that, makes it appear that The Big Sick has been removed from PornHub, so if you were hoping to check it out for free, you've lost your chance. Though I did find Zootopia and Back to the Future if you'd like to watch those. It seems that when PornHub saw Kumail Nanjiani's original tweet, they went looking for the illegal upload. Although, they apparently had some difficulty finding the movie as well, which led to a fairly terrible thing for people to have to experience on Christmas.

Do yourself a favor. Don't ever search for the term "big sick" on a porn site. Just don't. You'll thank me later.

It's actually too bad that the movie is gone because it turns out Kumail Nanjiani actually wasn't trying to bring attention to the fact that The Big Sick was on PornHub in order to get it pulled. It sounds like he legitimately wanted people to watch it, as he responded back to PornHub by asking them not to take it down.

Kumail Nanjiani has been utterly shameless in his promotion of The Big Sick on Twitter, and justifiably so, as the movie is one of the best films of the year without question. While it may not be the sort of thing your average PornHub viewer is looking for, they'd do themselves a favor by taking a couple hours to check it out.
