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.
Oliver Trinke has always tried to put his Highlands, New Jersey past behind him, but it has been a difficult task for the past six years. Ollie was a successful New York City music publicist. He and his wife Gertrude had a daughter, immediately after which Gertrude died leading to Ollie naming their daughter Gertie. Unprepared to be a father let alone a single father, Ollie, through a single incident largely putting his desire for professional success over his responsibilities as a father, became persona non grata in the entertainment publicity industry, resulting in Ollie and Gertie needing to move back to Highlands, moving in with his father, Bart Trinke, until he got back onto his feet. But unexpectedly for Ollie, getting back on his feet in an immediate sense meant getting a job working side-by-side with Bart in the Borough of Highlands works crew, a job he still has. Ollie still has the desire both to get back to a New York City life and a high powered job as an entertainment ...Written by
Originally, Bruce Willis was to be the star Ollie badmouthed (when it was set in the late-eighties), but a deal with Willis couldn't be secured. See more »

Kevin Smith has a three-hour "director's cut" version that has screened in Los Angeles and in New Jersey at his Vulgarthon all-day film events. Smith says he will release the longer version on DVD for the film's eventual tenth anniversary. See more »
The start of the movie was troubling and it only got worse. Having the girl give a presentation on her family to explain who they were didn't seem to be completed, being that she never finished her story.. A couple moments of Kevin Smith'esquire' dialogue, but not nearly enough. Carlin was good, and Liv Tyler talked like a Smith character, but other than that, I mean c'mon man you made Clerks and you're gonna end your movie with the Dad running to save the day at the School Play, THE FUCCING SCHOOL PLAY? Oh, and let's not forget about the montage's, Jesus how many cheesy songs can play while Affleck glances out his window just 'wondering'... The Landslide montage was one of the worst moments in my movie viewing career... I was a huge fan of Smith, He influenced me to write, and I think he writes- err.. WROTE dialogue better than anyone, but now, landslide.....
