Released:
2008
Rating:
R

Zack and Miri Make a Porno is Kevin Smith's ribald 2008 romantic comedy. Zack (Seth Rogen) and Miri (Elizabeth Banks) have been best friends since elementary school. Now they are roommates, and as the movie opens Zack is struggling working at a local coffee shop, bills are piling up, utilities are getting shut off, and eviction starts to seem like a real possibility. With this stress on their minds, Zack and Miri head to their high school reunion. There Zack and Miri discover they have become an internet sensation. Apparently, unbeknownst to them Miri and Zack had been recorded with Miri in just her panties and the video got uploaded. Humiliated and poor, Zack and Miri come home. Suddenly, Zack gets a thunderbolt of inspiration: if a video like that was such a sensation, perhaps if they record an adult film together they can dig their way out of their financial nightmare. After all, he thinks, the sex won't be a problem since they are too close in a platonic manner for the sex to complicate things. So with that Zack and Miri pursue making an adult film. Can Zack and Miri appear in a sex romp on film together without more romantic feelings entering the fray?

Metacritic Score

  • 75

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    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.

    Variety Todd McCarthy

    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.

  • 50

    The New York Times A.O. Scott

    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.
