Holden and Banky are comic book artists. Everything's going good for them until they meet Alyssa, also a comic book artist. Holden falls for her, but his hopes are crushed when he finds out she's a lesbian.
Lifelong platonic friends Zack and Miri look to solve their respective cash-flow problems by making an adult film together. As the cameras roll, however, the duo begin to sense that they may have more feelings for each other than they previously thought.
A pair of comic book authors named Holden McNeil and Banky Edwards, who live in New Jersey, have been best friends for 20 years. They spend their time working in their studio, and in the evenings they are going out. But their friendship is about to be disputed for the first time in their life, when a beautiful young lesbian woman named Alyssa Jones enters their life and Holden falls in love with her. Now Holden has to deal with Banky's jealousy, and with his new girlfriend's very rich past.Written by
The sign for the Manhattan Comic Con notes that the event is presented by "Flanagan Events". This is a reference to Walter Flanagan, who played several roles in Clerks (1994) and Mallrats (1995). He was supposed to be in this film as Walt the fan boy, but his scenes were deleted. See more »

I thought this was a pretty good film for a first time filmmaker...until I learned it was Kevin Smith's fourth film (three features and a documentary). It continually astonishes me to learn how many of my college "back in the day" friends liked this film. The preoccupation with "lesbians" is something that most men grow out of, say, by the 8th or 9th grade, unless they suffer some sort of arrested development. And what is it with Joey Lauren Adams squeaky voice and the constant use of soft focus with her closeups? I guess there is something to be said for having a relationship with the director. Either the publicity poster for the film was heavily doctored, or Adams went off her Ritalin regimen, but she looks awful in the film. Don't even get me started on Affleck, see my review for "Pearl Harbor". He is a very irritating performer who is clearly in love with the sound of his own voice. The only bright spot in the film is Jason Lee, who I could watch in just about anything, he's one of the brightest new talents to come along in cinema since Johnny Depp had his breakthrough with "Edward Scissorhands".
