Ben and Andrew are going to have sex. But they’re not gay. As the two manly ex-college roommates insist, their drunken dare to costar in an erotic film for a local festival is ”beyond gay.” Leonard (The Blair Witch Project) was so eager to work with Duplass (Baghead) that he signed on before knowing the racy plot. ”Don’t ever let me commit to anything again without asking what it’s about first,” he jokes. The characters’ panic is real — the Sundance hit was heavily improvised, leaving the actors uncertain whether Ben and Andrew would fulfill their pact.
