Storyline

Wayne Beering and Buck Dolby are drugged out geniuses with lots of ideas but they can never seem to get their act together. But when they come up with the idea to create a porn site - and charge for it (the first ever site to do so), their idea may be too lucrative for them to handle. Straight-laced business man, Jack Harris, is brought in to team up with them and turn their profitable idea into a legit business. Making money in the pornography industry is pretty easy, but staying true to yourself when surrounded by that much wealth, luxury, sex, crime and temptations, is much harder. Written by napierslogs

Goofs

(at around 1 min) Wayne and Buck walk past two cars while going into the strip club. The last time stamp says this is taking place in 1997. But the two cars they walk by are a Saleen S7 that wasn't in production until 2000, and a Ferrari F430 that was made before 2004. See more »

Seriously how did this movie not get any attention?
27 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was skeptical about this film. I know it says it got a theatrical release, but it must've been on only a couple screens.

If you are thinking about watching this movie, do it. It's wonderful. I gave it 8 out of 10. There was a little too much Voice Over narration, but this was a great story, well acted and well directed. Luke Wilson's never been a great thespian, but here, he's very good. Giovanni Ribisi overacts, but here it works. Gabriel Macht, who I have never liked was great. And Laura Ramsey was gorgeous and great. I could have done without Jacinda Barrett, but hey, that might just be me.

In a day and age where crap gets 3000 screens (I'm talking to you Season of the witch, drive angry, hall pass, the roommate), it's a shame this was not released wide and could not find an audience.

To the filmmakers... very well done. To the distributer: you could have done better.
