Zack and Miri Make a Porno
Lifelong friends and platonic flatmates Zack and Miri have a problem... they've run out of cash for the rent, and their electricity and water have been cut off. Desperate to Make Money Fast, they decide to make a porn movie for release on the Internet. However, having sex together is going to radically change the nature of their relationship ... and is that love rearing its head? Reviews have been mixed. Expect profusive bad language, some nudity and not much sex ... or porn.

99 minutes.
No persons under 18 (Language, Sex, Nudity).

Rebekah Kendal quote iconSo, to recap: the movie about making a porno stars two former porn stars as actresses, two actors pretending to be porn stars, two actors attempting to make porn without being porn stars, a whole lot of porn lingo, and a little bit of porn.

John P. McCarthy quote iconWhile he paved the way in certain respects, it feels as though Kevin Smith is jumping on the Judd Apatow bandwagon.

Jason Anderson quote iconMostly unfunny attempt to copy Judd Apatow’s blend of spooge, smirks and sweetness.

Peter Travers quote iconNaughty and nice is a killer-hard combo to pull off. Stick with Rogen and Banks. They rock it.

C. Fuchs quote iconSmith's diehard fan base will probably eat this up, but I found it a step in two wrong directions -- not only backwards after seemingly starting to mature a bit as a filmmaker, but also in trying to emulate the Apatow formula (where a heart and/or some charm develops within all of the crudity) that's obviously been far more successful than anything Smith has released.

Tomatometer quote iconZack and Miri Make a Porno is a modest success for Kevin Smith, due in large part to the charm of Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks.
