Zack and Miri Make A Porno

Zack and Miri Make A Porno played at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) a couple months ago and got great reviews. That's when I put it on my "gotta see it when it comes out" list!

And I see that it's opening in theatres next Friday (October 31). Gord and I will probably go see it then ... it will give us some place to be when the trick or treaters come knocking on our door.

Zack and Miri Make A Porno has Kevin Smith and Seth Rogen working together ... so you know it's going to be funny!

Zack and Miri are two lifelong friends who are deep in debt and enlist the help of their friends to make a porno movie for some quick cash. But as everybody starts "doing" everybody, Zack and Miri realize that they may have more feelings for each other than they previously thought.


I'd heard about Kevin Smith over the years but hadn't seen any of his movies, either as a director or an actor, until I saw Catch and Release. It wasn't a great movie but I liked Smith and his character. Right after that I saw Clerks II on the movie network and thought it was hilarious!

So just from those two movies, I'd say that I've become a bit of a Kevin Smith fan. At least now I know what all the fuss is about!

I first became aware of Seth Rogen in The 40 Year Old Virgin and have liked his stuff since. And I dig the fact that he's Canadian.

Did you hear about the controversy about the movie poster? I didn't understand why at first. But then I read an article. Okay, I get it now ... duh!

This movie definitely pushes the envelope of what's acceptable. Do you think kids will want to make pornos now? Or think its maybe more acceptable?

Kevin Smith has a winning formula with this movie, can't wait to see it. this will probably be his biggest box office hit.
