Charming, but feels lightweight for Kevin Smith.
½ July 13, 2016
"Zack and Miri Make a Porno" succeeds due to incredible charm from Banks and Rogen, in addition to Smith's talent for getting away with reprehensible vulgarity by being so darned sweet and heartfelt in every filthy frame.

Even though it bases most of its success on Elizabeth Banks and Seth Rogen, "Zack and Miri make a Porno" will make you laugh - sometimes until you cry.

An extremely raunchy comedy with the perfect blend of "sweet."

Forced, but mostly funny

Very shocking and fruity comedy, Really funny though, It's Seth Rogan making a porn film, That should be enough to either scare you away or reel you in, Just don't watch if you blush easy.

It feels so independent and seems like no big deal. It has its moments though.

For a big part, "Zack and Miri Make a Porno" is a delightfully funny comedy thanks to the relatable protagonistic duo of Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks and some great dialogues courtesy of filmmaker Kevin Smith of "Clerks" fame. Unfortunately it all gets too self-serious by the end, in a half-baked kind of forced way. It would have been better if it had stuck to the comedy but it's still a worthwhile movie as it is.

Surprisingly sweet and fresh love story. I really wanted Zack and Miri to work it out. Not that it was ever the question that they would, but the way things worked out was a pleasure to watch.

Dare I say that Kevin Smith made, for all intents and purposes, a chick flick disguised behind multiple layers of raunchy sex and scatological humor (much like Clerks II)?? Yes, I do dare say that, because that's exactly what this movie is. It wasn't a horrible movie and it's definitely not Kevin Smith's worst film, but there's just something off about this one. There are definitely funny moments in this, mostly coming from the Smith regulars but there's something disappointingly melancholy about it all. Kevin Smith is at the height of his power when he's working within the Askewniverse that he created- his sense of humor and dialog feels kind of out of place being set in what's supposed to be the real world. Hearing the same kind of racy humor we are familiar with from Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back just feels misplaced in this movie especially when coming from Jason Mewes and Jeff Anderson. Rogen is funny here but it's not really the Rogen we know and love from Knocked Up and The 40 Year Old Virgin... Here his natural Rogen-ness is stifled by seeming strict adherence to Smiths written dialog. I just really don't know how to pin down how I feel about this movie. It's not horrible, it's not that good, and it tries just a little too hard to push the envelope. The resulting movie is one without a clear demographic. The raunchy sex talk and humor would suggest that this is for the same crowd that loves Smith's other films, the addition of Seth Rogen and Craig Robinson would suggest that it's targeted toward the Apatow crowd. The overly schmaltzy, emotional romantic aspect is really what undermines what is seemingly supposed to be a hard-R raunchy comedy- what you get is a very strange and unsettling hybrid of a Kevin Smith film, a Judd Apatow film, and a Lifetime movie.

Kevin Smith fans may ultimately be disappointed. He took a chance leaving the Askewniverse behind to tackle all new characters, edgy subject matter, and to capitalize on the Apatow/Rogen gravy train.. the sad thing is that most of what we love about Smith's Askewniverse films is present here, but it just never meshes with everything else crammed in here.

A fucking waste of time, I hate Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks alone can't save this shit.

Consistently funny and surprisingly touching. Rogen and Banks are perfectly cast as platonic friends you actually believe could be platonic friends for a change. Not some My Best Friends Wedding bullshit where we're expected to believe Julia Roberts is some tomboy chick a guy would be ok just hanging out with. Banks, while being very beautiful, still somehow manages to pull it off. What's more, the shift from platonic to romantic between the two protagonists (not a spoiler if you've ever seen a movie before) is handled realistically in smiths capable hands.
