Movie review – Zack and Miri make a porno

I don’t review movies very often, but maybe I should.

I saw Zach and Miri make a porno last weekend. It’s worth noting that we were preached to by a concession cashier.. He asked what we were seeing and then proceeded to tell us about several “good christian movies” we should watch. It was weird. Perhaps the biggest take-away from the movie for me was the preview of the film Fanboys – a story of some nerds who set out to steal Star Wars memorabilia from George Lucas’ home. Bill Shatner, Jason Mewes and Kevin smith are all in it as well as some other cameos.. Looks pretty funny.

Zach and Miri was pretty good. I didn’t know it was a Kevin Smith film prior to the movie starting, but once it did, it was pretty obvious. The imaginative insults and dialog were in the classic, awkwardly paced Smith style, although Belinda suggests that this style is pretty common with Seth Rogen as well. If you enjoy Smith’s other works, you will probably like this one. I liked it, but the Kevin Smith movie style is kind of wearing on me, probably due to independent/student films I’ve acted in all ripping off his shtick.

Regardless, if you’re cool with foul language, nudity, and simulated sex acts, this is an entertaining movie with a touch of a love story. Definitely worth watching.
