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.
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer was originally going to distribute the film through their agreement with The Weinstein Company. However, they pulled out before the agreement expired.

In the trailers, when Delaney (Craig Robinson) says the line "Han Solo and Princess Leia ain't never had no sex in Star Wars," Lester (Jason Mewes) can be seeing mouthing the line along with him. This is reported to be an intentional reference to a famous goof in Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980) where Harrison Ford can be seen mouthing Carrie Fisher's line.
An infomercial for "Zack and Miri Make YOUR Porno" interrupts the closing credits.
