I was excited to see Zack and Miri Make A Porno. Why? For several reasons.
- It’s Seth Rogen, he’s totally geek hot.
- It’s Kevin Smith, that’s just a good time no matter what.
- It has porno in the title which means it’s about sex and has dirty words in it, sex is funny.
- I like Elizabeth Banks, who doesn’t? She’s like the girl next door who you want to bang too.
The Basics: Anyway, the film is about 2 platonic friends Zack and Miri who are broke and so they can turn their electricity and water back on they decide to make a porno. Problem is that they have never had sex before and are afraid it will ruin their relationship.
The Good: The conversations in Kevin Smith movies are always the best part and the seriously foul language is really fucking funny. I also admit the chemistry was nice between Seth and Elizabeth, especially one scene in particular. Hmmmm….
The Bad: I’m sorry but it was a little too cheesy and immature for me at times, maybe I’m just getting too old…which fucking sucks seriously. Maybe the film just tried too hard to push the envelope. Also I hate hate HATE bathroom humor and that just really pisses me off to see anything that you would see in a bathroom. Except peeing, peeing doesn’t bother me. Washing hands is fine too. Anyway, the film went back and forth for me, one scene I’d love (mostly the scenes with just Seth and Elizabeth) and another scene with like Jay from Jay and Silent Bob just totally turned me off (I don’t need to see him humping).
The Final Word: Anyway, I do suggest you see it…the moments were worth it for an enjoyable evening.
