Movie Review: Zack and Miri Make a Porno (2008)

0

Last night I had the pleasure of seeing an advance screening of Kevin Smith’s latest film, Zack and Miri Make a Porno. The film, due out for theatrical release on Halloween, stars Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks in the title roles. They’re lifelong friends and current roommates who are flat broke and do what any sane people would do when faced with no other options: Make an adult film. Seems simple enough, right? Throughout the film, we’re shown how Zack and Miri, who have been friends since the 1st grade just belong together. It’s this little bit of romance that gives the film so much heart which somehow shines through all of the dick jokes.

Oh yeah. There are dick jokes. And quite a lot of them actually. I mean, the title of the film has the word “Porno” in it. What were you expecting? There’s a ton of raunchy humor in this movie, but it’s not done in a tasteless or unfunny manner that you’d expect from some of the current low-brow films that are out there (*cough*Epic Movie*cough*). I’d put this on about the same level as Knocked Up or Superbad on the language front. (more…)

Making a Porno in Woodstock (10/5/2008)

I wake up around 9. After laying in bed for a little while, Monica and I eventually get up. Breakfast is had and some Dead Zone is watched. We finish up the last few episodes of the second season. Monica doesn’t feel too well, so we just relax and watch these episodes. Fortunately by the time they’re over, she feels much better.

The race coverage starts up at 1 and we start watching that. I continue inputting information into my DVDProfiler program. I still have a long way to go.

The race begins around 2:20. I’m keeping an eye on the time because we’ve got plans for tonight and I want to make sure we can make it OK. This week’s NASCAR race is at Talladega and it’s actually pretty exciting. Here are 43 cars zooming around a track at nearly 200 mph and they’re all bumping into each other or within an inch of one another. One false move and they’re all destroyed. (more…)
