Zack and Miri Make A Porno (2008)


I saw the latest film from writer/director Kevin Smith last night, “Zack and Miri Make A Porno”. This film has gotten some unwarranted press because of the original poster above and also the stick figure poster that Kevin Smith did himself. Censors were saying that it was appealing to kids and all that. Bullshit.

Also, this film has a NC-17 rating. What? Just because you saw Jason Mewes as Lester in all his glory. Please! Sidebar– Jason is looking quite toned in the movie.

So, the movie is about a pair of twenty-somethings Zack and Miri (Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks) are struggling to pay their bills when one after another is turned off. They go to their 10 year high school reunion where they discover that one of their classmates Brandon and Bobby Long(Justin Long and Brandon Routh) are gay porn stars from L.A.

Finally, when their electrity is cut off, they are in dire straits. Zack has the notion to make a porno. Genius! They recruit a couple of people. Delaney (Craig Robinson) to be the producer, Lester as one of the co-stars, Bubbles (Traci Lords), Stacey (Katie Morgan) and Barry (Ricky Mabe).

The making of the porno was hilarious. Justin Long with his gruff voice made me double over. See this film. There is also the love story between Zack and Miri that is sweet in a Kevin Smith kind of way.

See it.
