Zack and Miri does nothing to raise the bar. It just sits on it.
October 17, 2018
A fundamentally conservative look at love that desperately thinks of itself as transgressive.

Even though I saw it barely two months ago, it has gone right out of my head.

Kevin Smith has placed a black mark on an otherwise solid filmography by selling himself short in a bid to shock new viewers and win back old ones with Zack and Miri Make a Porno.
July 6, 2010
Married, a father and pushing 40, Smith is no longer a trustworthy chronicler of 20-something slackers. He still can devise an impressively gamy set piece, but he's misplaced the humanity of his best work.

This explicit gross-out comedy is so scared of being too naughty, it seeks refuge in a very 'nice' love story. The result isn't funny or edgy.
February 20, 2009
While the jokes are admittedly very funny, they're constantly offset by a tumbling waterfall of schmaltz.
February 20, 2009
There remain some scatological touches I am still trying to forget. It's all done with great glee, yet falls far short of being hilarious.
February 20, 2009
A well-meaning, foul-mouthed misfire.
January 31, 2009
Two porn stars and true romance on their, well, first date on camera, and a stud geek worried about man boobs. Kevin and Seth make a porno that may be too hardcore for the sexually squeamish and too mushy for porniacs.

The likable lead actors somehow make the unconvincing premise and occasionally gruesome 'frankness' work.
November 14, 2008
The movie makes a cleverish joke about the promise of porn, the promise that it tells the truth.
November 14, 2008
Smith may have pioneered this kind of upfront sex chat, but the Apatow team refined it. 'Zack and Miri' feels uncomfortably like a gruesome game of filth-talk oneupmanship, and it's hard to care who comes out on top.
November 14, 2008
This is the most soppy and unsexy 18-certificate skin-flick ever made.
November 14, 2008
This is a very ordinary comedy script, and the presence of Smith's trusty repertory players in minor roles makes this for fans only.
November 14, 2008
Or: Kevin Smith makes an icky and secretly conservative sex comedy.
November 14, 2008
Put simply, it's all lube and no spunk.
November 14, 2008
The only 21st-century aspects of it are the unfunnily vulgar references to sexual and bodily functions along with several hundred uses of the F-word, which those who adore Russell Brand and Jonathan Ross may find a thousand times less wearisome than I did
November 14, 2008
There are a couple of laugh-out-loud moments but messy direction means this X-rated romcom should stay under the counter.
November 14, 2008
Rogen does his man-child-slob shtick dependably, and Elizabeth Banks is a good sport as well as a decent comedian. One only wishes that the whole thing were funnier.
