25 Easy Steps to Win "The Do-Deca-Pentathlon"


The biathlon is for chumps. The triathlon is for sissies. For the true test of manhood and talent there's a far more relevant and exciting sporting event: The Do-Deca Pentathlon. Invented by two brothers (Mark Kelly, Steve Zissis), The Do-Deca-Pentathlon consists of twenty five events to prove one's self against one's fellow man. Okay, so maybe this isn't a real thing, but it is a real comedy by real-life brothers Jay Duplass and Mark Duplass (The League) and it, like the Olympics, represents the best of all that man can accomplish in the spirit of competition. Can you find a nobler purpose for a comedy than that?

The Do-Deca-Pentathlon arrived on DVD and Blu-ray September 18th, and to honor that fact we're giving away two Blu-ray copies. To find out how you can win, just keep reading.

The Do-Deca-Pentathlon is the hilarious story of two grown brothers who rekindle their uber-competitive childhood sporting event, The Do-Deca-Pentathlon, over a weekend family reunion in order to finally determine the ultimate winner. When the rest of the family is disrupted by the fierce competition of their unfinished business, the brothers must hide their efforts in order to complete the event… once and for all. This is the second film from Jay and Mark Duplass to be released under the Fox Searchlight Pictures banner following their 2010 poignant Sundance hit Cyrus.
