Humpday is a 2009 comedy-drama film that revolves around two long-time male friends named Ben and Andrew, who reunite after years of being apart. Andrew has been travelling the world and exploring different cultures while Ben lives a settled and comfortable married life with his wife Anna. One day, Andrew shows up on Ben's doorstep unannounced and the two friends spend the night together reminiscing and catching up. Later that night, they attend a party where they encounter an artistic dare known as Humpday, which involves shooting a hardcore pornographic film that features two straight men having sex with each other. The idea intrigues the two friends and they decide that they want to participate in the dare themselves.

Throughout the film, we see Ben and Andrew struggle with their identity and masculinity as they try to figure out if they are really willing to go through with the dare. They both come from vastly different lifestyles, and their conflicting ideologies add to their inner turmoil. Ben is a well-established artist who is trying to settle into married life while Andrew is living a carefree and adventurous existence.

As they continue to brainstorm and plan out the production of their film, their friendship begins to strain under the pressure. Ben's wife Anna is also uncomfortable with the idea of the film, and their relationship begins to suffer as a result. The film explores themes of masculinity, sexuality, and the boundaries of friendship.

Mark Duplass and Joshua Leonard deliver exceptional performances as the two leads, with Alycia Delmore providing strong support as Anna. Humpday's raw and realistic portrayal of modern male identity creates an engaging and thought-provoking story.

Director Lynn Shelton takes a chance with the film’s unorthodox storyline and challenges traditional notions of sexuality and masculinity. Although the film's premise may seem risque or even offensive to some, it is presented in a non-judgmental and unapologetic manner that further adds to its authenticity. The film's climax is especially poignant, providing a compelling and emotionally satisfying conclusion.

Overall, Humpday is a bold and original film that tackles complex themes in a subtle and nuanced way. It is a rare film that manages to be both heart-warming and thought-provoking, and is sure to leave a lasting impression on anyone who watches it.
