Zack and Miri Make a Porno
Review (-/10)
(By Paul Fischer)

Iconic director Kevin Smith returns behind the feature film camera for the first time since Clerks II in Zack and Miri Make a Porno, and this could be his best film in a decade.

Lifelong platonic friends Zack (Seth Rogen) and Miri (Elizabeth Banks) look to solve their respective cashflow problems by making an amateur porn film together. As the cameras roll, however, the duo begins to sense that they may have more feelings for each other than they previously thought.

Smith's latest script crackles with verbal and visual hilarity, taking risks in some areas, yet showing his sensitive side as well. In essence, Zack and Miri is a film about relationships, sex, love, the way we depend on each other, and amidst the film's often raw, unbridled comedy, this is a very emotive love story.

While some fans of the writer/director may not really approve of this sensitive filmmaker, it would be somewhat weary to have a film full of visual and verbal sexual humour, without it ever attaining an emotional core, and Zack and Miri achieves that to sublime perfection.

Rogen is perfectly cast as Zack, but it's the luminous Ms Banks who brings an earthy reality to the piece. She is beautiful to watch and delivers a finely nuanced performance. Music plays an important role in Smith's work, and the combination of James L. Venable's original score and a punchy pop soundtrack both enhance mood and tone, as done the beautiful work of cinematographer David Klein, who has shot much of Smith's work from the beginning.

Ferociously sexual, hilarious and quite moving, Zack and Miri Make a Porno is wonderfully entertaining and marks a return to a gifted director. It's sad and absurd the film scored an NC-17 rating in the US. Hopefully cooler heads will prevail by the time the movie opens on October 31.
