During a weekend getaway, Alex meets her boyfriend's friends and it doesn’t go well. Alex Forrest and Joe Gleason, known as Home Planet, are the writers of “Boyfriend’s Boyfriends,” a sketch comedy film that unfolds as a three day extravaganza of juvenile antics. From the jump, the boys are oblivious to any sense of etiquette or decorum when meeting their friend’s girlfriend. At every opportunity, they make it awkward and difficult for her. On day two, the perpetually giggling boys abandon Alex for the whole day after leaving a post-it note on her chest that says “we are out”. As the weekend progresses, the absurd disrespect mounts to a showdown in the woods. Home Planet is new to us but they immediately establish themselves as promising new Brooklyn comedy filmmakers.
