Summary, etc.: Sex sells in America, and these guys know it. When Andy meets his ex-wife's new husband (an extremely wealthy guy) who is now his son's "cool" stepfather, he becomes motivated to make a change in his own life. With the help of his friends, a small-town group of loveable losers, they hit upon an idea to make their dreams come true. The grand plan they hope will lead to a life of riches and fame involves making the world's most innocent adult film. Every man's fantasy turns into a hilarious misadventure as they find out that they're in way over their heads.
