Zack and Miri Make a Porno

Directed By: Kevin Smith


Kevin Smith takes on porn, what’s not to like?

Sure, there’s many an obvious joke, and there’s plenty of gross out humour (involving anal leakage, no less), but at its heart this is as close as he’s gotten since to the underlying sweetness of Chasing Amy. The chemistry between Rogan and Banks is quite natural, and the supporting characters do a decent enough job of keeping the story moving. Particular mention of Craig Robinson must be noted, as he once again steals the show (with Traci Lords in the scene, no less).

It’s not all wasted in the trailer, and heavy handed porn parody aside, this is a fine romantic comedy with an edge. Hardly the great comeback that some were hoping for, it’s still more successful than many of Smith’s recent works.

Grade: B+
