Zach and Miri Make a Porno

(18) 101min

Forget the salacious sounding title, Zack and Miri is a Kevin Smith movie so it was never going to be a Ron Jeremy skin flick. Indeed, it’s an archetypical Smith movie – an over-sentimental tale in which boy knows girl, boy and girl have relationship, they break up and then get back together again. Smith has followed this format in nearly all his films, from the critically acclaimed Clerks and Chasing Amy to box office clunker Jersey Girl.

Smith has a huge cult following because when on form he brings great dialogue, real emotions and laugh-out-loud adult humour to the party and that’s exactly what he does here in his funniest film to date (although that doesn’t mean it’s as good or fresh as Clerks). Seth Rogan and Elisabeth Banks give ebullient performances as the auteur lovers of the title who’ve been best friends since school but their shifts in a local café aren’t paying the bills. So they’re inspired by a former classmate and a YouTube escapade to try porn – with hilarious results.

General release from Fri 14 Nov.
