    If you're a fan of Seth Rogen, you might be able to get through this But it comes up short, especially in the third act. It isn't funny. Just corny.

    'Zack and Miri Makes a Porno' is hilarious, but it's strongest aspect is the fact that it created pathos and honest sentiment within a narrative that felt like it'd have to be completely devoid of it.

    Kevin Smith attempts to work out his obsession with sex in Zack and Miri Make a Porno. When roommates Zack and Miri find themselves hopelessly in debt they resort to making a porno in order to get the money that they need. The casting's very good, and includes Seth Rogen, Elizabeth Banks, Craig Robinson, Jeff Anderson, and Jason Mewes, but they have little to work with. The writing is exceptionally poor, and is more concerned with crass, obscene humor than storytelling. Smith tries to work in some heartfelt moments, but they feel contrived. Unfortunately Kevin Smith appears to have nothing left to say as a filmmaker, and has reverted to raunchy, infantile sex jokes; as exemplified by Zack and Miri Make a Porno.

    Very shocking and fruity comedy, Really funny though, It's Seth Rogen making a porn film, That should be enough to either scare you away or reel you in, But it does have a certain charm thanks to onscreen chemistry between literally all the cast, They make this film have more heart than you would think possible in a film like this, Just don't watch it if you blush easy.
