Zack & Miri Make a Porno

After a month's hiatus, I finally made it back to the movies yesterday. I was hesitant to see Zack and Miri Make A Porno because I am just not a huge fan of Kevin Smith's movies. I find Kevin Smith as a person to be really interesting and hilarious but his movies tend to be a bit too chatty for my liking. And even though I cuss like a sailor, it sometimes makes me cringe to hear excessive amounts of foul language in a movie. I know. I'm a mystery wrapped in an enigma. What can I say?
I finally folded and went to see Zack and Miri because my mother and father, both in their 60s, saw it before me and I can't have them being hipper than I am. Also? I love Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks. The Apatow Connection is strong in this film but not strong enough to make me love it. I definitely laughed and enjoyed myself but some of the scenes just didn't have the oomph they needed. I guess you can sum this movie up by saying it's a love story for guys that love titties and sexual references. I have to say, though, Justin Long and Craig Robinson of The Office fame really steal the show. I'd say they made it worth the price of a matinee admission.

Not exactly a ringing endorsement. I'll probably wait to see it on DVD.

I totally agree with you RE: Kevin Smith. I listen to the dude's podcast. Hilarious stuff. But I think I prefer that over his recent movies.
