A pair of longtime buds (Duplass and Leonard), after too much alcohol and weed at a party, decide to make a sex film in which they'll get it on with each other—even though both are straight. As the shooting deadline approaches (they plan to submit their short to a film festival), their anxieties, ahem, mount. Are they all talk, no action? Shot on a shoestring budget, Humpday is a funny, often insightful comedy about men behaving dumbly and their fumbling attempts to understand why they do.
