Zack and Miri Make a Porno

Supergeek auteur Kevin Smith (Clerks) strikes back with this sexed up Seth Rogen comedy, and a title that almost does away with the need for a synopsis. Here's one anyway...

Friends from childhood, Zach (Seth Rogen) and Miri (Elizabeth Banks from The 40 Year Old Virgin) both have money issues. What's the answer to their problems? Why, pornography of course. Sex sells, haven't you heard? Things get complicated during production when long repressed attractions rise to the surface.

It would be too much to say that what Smith has come up with here is inspired, but it is pretty funny and very energetic.

In spite of its sometimes tiresome, sometimes amusing lewdness, follows a gee-whiz romantic-comedy formula that would not be out of place on the Disney Channel.

The jokes are forced, almost mechanical, in their crudeness.

Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks make a lovable couple; she's pretty and goes one-for-one on the bleep language, and Rogen, how can I say this, is growing on me, the big lug.

Despite shortcomings and implausibility linked to their roles as written, Rogen and Banks come off with surprising charm and grace.

Crude, hilarious, if a little corny, Smith's latest hardcore comedy is right on the money shot.
