HUMPDAY
2009, Magnolia Pictures, 94 min, USA, Dir: Lynn Shelton

It's been a decade since Ben (Mark Duplass) and Andrew (Joshua Leonard) were the bad boys of their college campus. Ben has settled down and found a job, wife and home, while Andrew took the alternate route as a vagabond artist. When Andrew shows up unannounced on Ben's doorstep, they easily fall back into their old dynamic of macho one-upmanship. Late into the night at a wild party, the two find themselves locked in a mutual dare: to enter an amateur porn contest together. Writer-director Lynn Shelton expertly mines the biggest ironies of the male ego to hilarious effect in this buddy movie gone wild.
