adventuring friend from college shows up at married guy's house. distracts married guy from married life. they decide to make a porno of the two of them. they play a sort of gay chicken with one another. awkardness ensues.
this was ok. i wasn't on board until halfway through though. it seemed to me the marriage was really weird, and the guys were pretty homo-erotic before they decided to do a porno. the married couple seemed to reassure each other a lot, which to me indicates discomfort, and artificialness. but i think that was the point. because halfway through it started to get more honest. the whole making a porno of two straight guys together as a kind of arty porn sailed way over my head. but it was also admitted to be stupid towards the end. all the problems i had with this movie were pointed out and discussed by the end, which is why i kind of liked it. but only a comme ci, comme ca like. it was a typical indy movie with an indy ending. of course it's indy, it has mark duplass in it.
