Zack and Miri Make a Porno redband trailer


I have a love and hate relationship with Kevin Smith’s movies- I loved Clerks, which was fresh and new. But like Tim Burton’s films, everything he’s made since has the fingerprints visible in the clay- I can see his quirks too easily. He’s really not good at writing female characters or getting a great performance out of a woman, for example. And I was hoping his Star Wars fanboyism would finally be left behind, but listen to the name of the porno they’re making. It’s not even funny.

This one doesn’t feel like a Kevin Smith movie in many ways, which is a good thing. It has a very different cast, and apparently is not set in the “View Askewniverse,” so at least Jay and Silent Bob won’t show up, and Jeff “Randal” Anderson will be playing a different character. Besides Seth Rogan as Zack and Elizabeth Banks as Miri, it’s got “the Mac Guy,” and some dude from the Office, and it has a mild comedic energy more reminiscent of an Apatow comedy than a manic Kevin Smith profanity festival. My only caveat is that it seems to think it’s a lot more shocking than it is, probably to sate the MPAA– it originally got an NC-17, but won an R on appeal.
