Description

Kevin Smith directs this romantic comedy starring Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks as lifelong platonic friends and roommates Zack and Miri. Facing hard times and a mountain of debt, they seize upon the idea of making a homegrown adult film in order to ease their cashflow problems, and enlist the help of their friends to carry out their plan. The two vow that having sex will not ruin their friendship - but as filming begins, what started out as a straightforward business proposition between friends turns into something much more complicated.

Synopsis
As its explicit title suggests, Kevin Smith's ZACK AND MIRI MAKE A PORNO is a foul-mouthed and filthy film that probably isn't fit for the very young, the very old, or the easily offended. But for those who enjoy Smith's brand of humor, this raunchy but romantic comedy could be the perfect date movie (though perhaps not for a first date). With mountains of past-due bills piling up, Zack (Seth Rogen, KNOCKED UP) and his roommate/childhood friend Miri (Elizabeth Banks, SCRUBS) aren't sure how they're going to stay in their Pittsburgh apartment. But a chance encounter at their 10-year reunion gives them the idea to make a porn movie. When it comes time for the friends to do the deed, they realize that perhaps they're more than just friends.

With all the talk of sexual positions and bodily functions, it'd be easy to say that Smith is hopping on the Judd Apatow bandwagon that has dominated the box office in the latter half of the aughts with KNOCKED UP and THE 40-YEAR-OLD VIRGIN, and ZACK AND MIRI even features a few Apatow alumni. But Smith perfected this schtick down back in the '90s with CLERKS, when some of Apatow's fans were still in diapers. ZACK AND MIRI is most reminscent of Smith's own CHASING AMY; there are plenty of gag- or giggle-inducing moments, but Smith's script is also surprisingly sweet. Rogen and Banks make a perfect couple, and the always hilarious Rogen could be Smith's new Ben Affleck or Jason Lee.

Chicago Sun-Times
"[A] very genuine romance. Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks make a lovable couple..."
Roger Ebert (5 Nov 2008, )
Empire
3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]here are big, fast laughs to be had from the relentless trash talk."
Simon Crook (1 Jan 2009, p.70)
Los Angeles Times
"ZACK AND MIRI has a bright, chipper look to it....[Rogen is] a master of making it look easy. It takes skill to come off like you're making it up as you go....[Banks is] on top of her game here."
Michael Phillips (31 Oct 2008, )
Rolling Stone
3 stars out of 4 -- "Rogen and Banks, both terrific, bring out the sweet and spicy best in each other....They rock it."
Peter Travers (13 Nov 2008, p.98)
