FREE Sneak Peek Movie Tickets to See Humpday!!

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

As a purveyor of cheap fun, it’s my honor to inform you that I’ve secured you FREE seats for a sneak peek of the new movie Humpday, an indie film starring Mark Duplass and Josh Leonard.  I just watched the trailer and it looks like it’s gonna be pretty fucking hilarious.  Unfortunately I don’t get paid to write movie synopses, but somebody does, so here’s what they have to say:

It’s been a decade since Ben (Duplass) and Andrew (Leonard) were the bad boys of their college campus. Ben has settled down and found a job, wife, and home. Andrew took the alternate route as a vagabond artist, skipping the globe from Chiapas to Cambodia. 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. But what kind of boundary-breaking, envelope pushing porn can two straight dudes make? After the booze and “big talk” run out, only one idea remains'”they will have sex together…on camera. It’s not gay; it’s beyond gay. It’s not porn; it’s art. But how exactly will it work? And more importantly, who will tell Anna (Delmore), Ben’s wife?

Writer/director Lynn Shelton, director of My Effortless Brilliance and recipient of the “Someone to Watch Award” at the 2009 Independent Spirit Awards, expertly mines the biggest ironies of the male ego to hilarious effect. HUMPDAY is a buddy movie gone wild.

So yeah, that’s what a movie synopsis looks like.  Does this sound like a movie you wanna see?  If so, you can do it for FREE on Tuesday July 7th at the Landmark Embarcadero.  Plus  it will be followed by a Q&A with director/writer Lynn Shelton.  Sweet right?

All you have to do is email and put BROKE-ASS STUART in the subject line.  From there you’ll be emailed a pass that you’ll need to print out and bring.  Also make sure to get there early as these kinds of things can get overbooked.  They will be giving out 25 admit two tickets, which means that you’ve gotta be one of the first 25 people to email them to get the tix.  But hey, at least you get to bring a friend!  Best cheap date EVER!
