Andy Sargentee is a decent guy and the town's favorite failure: an unemployable dreamer whose ex's husband's wealth intimidates Andy to such an extent he does little with his teen son. Andy's new idea is for Butterface Fields to be the first town to band together to make the first full-length feature amateur adult film. He recruits five regulars at Floyd's Bar to contribute $2000 each. They get the kid at the video store, whose camcorder is constantly on, to be the cinematographer. The pal they all call "Some Idiot" volunteers to be writer-director. Otis becomes producer. Now, can they find actors, and especially, women? Can a pornography project give Andy self-respect?

Hilarious film about friend trying to make an innocent local porno
This movie was hilarious. Jeff Bridges plays Andy, a divorced guy visiting his son on his birthday. His ex-wife married a really rich guy, and Andy's worried that his son won't appreciate him anymore because he doesn't have as much money. So he comes up with an idea to make a bunch of money, make a local porno film with all of the town people involved.
The set up isn't so great, but the film is filled with so many actors and a lot of great comedy, it doesn't really matter. And when I say so many actors, I mean it, everyone in the film is a recognizable face. Jeff Bridges, Joe Pantoliano, Patrick Fugit, Tim Blake Nelson, William Fichtner, Ted Danson, and those are just the main characters. Ted Danson is hysterical playing the gay guy in the group who poorly tries to hide the fact that he's gay. And if anyone ever wanted to see Ted Danson naked, this is the film for you. Joe Pantoliano also does a great job in the film playing Some Idiot (yes, that's his character's name) the writer/director of the porno.
It's a great movie, very funny with a lot of great quotes. I just wish the ending could have been expanded a bit more, but oh well. Look out for this one.
