Zack and Miri Make a Porno

Synopsis: What would you do to get out of debt?

Get ready for the wild comedy that goes where no movie has dared go before! Seth Rogen (Pineapple Express) and Elizabeth Banks (Role Models) star as two cash-strapped roommates who try to get out of debt by making an adult film. Once the cameras start rolling, things quickly get complicated… and hilarious! Writer/Director Kevin Smith is at his funniest, backed by a motley cast, including Craig Robinson (The Office), Jason Mewes (Clerks films), Justin Long (Live Free or Die Hard), and Brandon Routh (Superman Returns). Critics promise, “If you liked The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up and Superbad, you’ll love Zack and Miri” (Shawn Edwards, Fox-TV).

Zack and Miri Make a Porno 7.0

If one overlooks the subject matter, this is a pretty conventional movie. And, aside from the two Kevin Smith movies I have yet to see (but soon will!), this is his least interesting one.

Granted, you laugh a fair bit, and his technical skills are drastically improved since the days of ‘Clerks’, but you get a pretty average romantic comedy set-up between the two main characters nonetheless. It was disappointing on that level, actually, because I thought that Smith always had an interesting take on things. Not so here… *yawn*

Still, it’s better than many Hollywood movies of this type and I will definitely give it a few more viewings – if only because I missed some bits while I was busy laughing biggrin
