Could You F**k Your Same-Sex Football Buddy?

Here’s the new movie poster for Humpday, a film you really have no reason to know much about unless you’ve been hanging around the festival circuit. It played very well Sundance, and several of us got a chance to see it at SXSW (I have no idea why we haven’t reviewed it yet — I’d written it in my head, and it just occurred to me that I’d never actually written it down). It’s a phenomenal mumblecore film (Mark Duplass is apparently the king of mumblecore), with a bizarre, uncomfortable premise.

It’s about two old very heterosexual friends who decide, basically on a dare backed up by a lot of red-meat male pride, to do a gay porn together. It’s an awkward, uncomfortable, but mostly hilarious flick directed by Lynne Shelton. I mean: Look at those guys. Do they look like two men who would want to sleep together? Trying fucking someone of the same sex if you’re 100 percent straight — not an easy thing to do. You remember Indecent Proposal? That would’ve been a much more interesting movie if Robert Redford had offered Woody Harrelson a million dollars to sleep with him.

Anyway, it’s great. It’ll be out in July. Here’s that poster:
