Zack and Miri Make a Porno
Lifelong friends and roommates Zack and Miri are facing hard times and a mountain of debt. When the electricity and plumbing get cut off, they seize upon the idea of making a homegrown porno movie for some quick cash, enlisting the help of their friends. The two vow that having sex will not ruin their friendship. But, as filming begins, what started out as a business proposition between friends turns into something much more.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"All in all it's a modern-day, Kevin Smith fairytale: a big-screen bearing, perhaps, of his soul at its sincerest and wittiest, if not filthiest."
‑ Christine Champ, Film.com
"Kevin Smith turns out to be reverent after all: he wants to separate true love from mere copulating for money, but his story mixes romance and porn so inextricably that he seems confused, and the movie trips over its own conceits."
‑ David Denby, New Yorker
"Some may tire of Smith's template of toilet humour and tits, but to others, those very same qualities are a guarantee of entertainment. Love him or hate him, Kevin Smith isn't afraid to hit new lows to get new laughs."
‑ Ali Gray, TheShiznit.co.uk
"Kevin Smith's ear for raunch is as piquant as ever, but he's moved beyond his usual unconvincing leads to Judd Apatow regulars Rogen and Craig Robinson."
‑ Brett Michel, Boston Phoenix
"There are a number of gut-bustingly funny individual scenes, but the narrative as a whole lacks thematic cohesion."
‑ Sonny Bunch, Washington Times
"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."
‑ Tom Huddlestone, Time Out
"Everyone on screen seems to be having so much fun."
‑ Neely Tucker, Washington Post
"Smith's film is nothing more or less than a routine romantic comedy in an unaccustomed wrapper."
‑ Kelly Vance, East Bay Express
"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."
‑ Mark Jenkins, NPR.org
"Ainda que Smith continue a exibir sua compulsão em escrever diálogos que usam a escatologia e os palavrões como forma barata (e ineficaz) de humor, o filme é um grande avanço em relação aos seus três últimos péssimos trabalhos."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"It's one thing for a movie to be dirty; it's another thing altogether for it to be plain sloppy."
‑ Christopher Orr, The New Republic
"Seth Rogen is totally out of control. He's been marvelously funny in the past, and will be again, but get that party animal back in his cage."
‑ Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"Kevin Smith's latest offering provides a constant stream of laughs throughout its duration, but crucially fails to nail the emotional realism it tries so hard to achieve."
‑ Ben Rawson-Jones, Digital Spy
"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."
‑ Matthew Pejkovic, Matt's Movie Reviews
"Zack and Miri may be a gross-out movie, but it's a damn clever one."
‑ Marc Fennell, Triple J
