Zack and Miri Make a Porno

Elizabeth Banks and Seth Rogen in Zack and Miri Make a Porno (The Weinstein Company)

By Eric Zacarias

At a time when Hollywood (or rather, Judd Apatow) has been stepping up to the plate and delivering quality comedy films with both substance and raunchiness in comes Kevin Smith. Smith not only adds to this line of great comedies but he does so in a manner that combines the best of both his trademark dick jokes and a heartwarming story. As an avid fan of director/writer Kevin Smith over the years, there were elements in Zack and Miri Make a Porno (opening October 31 throughout San Diego) I gleefully saw coming a mile away. The name itself is a display of the dirty-yet-proud-of-it demeanor of which the film is a shining beacon. The astounding collection of actors, both new and old to Smith's repertoire, did just as good a job as anyone could have hoped for. But make no mistake, as laugh-out-loud dirty as this film is (and it is), Kevin Smith manages to take it into a poignant and touching route that his earlier efforts tried on a more subtle note.

Zach and Miri make a porno was a hilarious. Its a great date movie thats going to keep u entertained and lauging throughout the whole time.The film has a great cast and storyline.I do disagree with other blogers in the sense that Seth Rogen is a bad actor, in my opinion hes a great actor and any of his films are worth watching.Zach and Miri will not dissapoint so go check it out.

Very good review Eric it was quite informative. A problem with the review though is that you spend a little too much time talking about Kevin Smith. By the way he isn't that good of a director "Clerks" and "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" were mediocre movies.

Sergio....."Clerks" and "Jay and Silent Bob" were well done movies. I have to say "Clerks" was A LITTLE mediocre but "Jay and Silent Bob" was funny as hell.
