I love me some porno…SYKE!

3 Jan

As much as I’m not into seeing full-on sex scenes in movies…I pretty much LOVE Zack and Miri Make a Porno.

Not that I’m against seeing people go at it…wait…no…nevermind.

Let’s just forget that I said that.

Anyway. Zack and Miri, in a sense, is all about best friends, and it’s such a sweet love story underneath all the dildo light sabers and Katie Morgan’s fake boobs. Zack and Miri are broke as fuck, and they’ve been friends for literally…FOREVER. And after their ten-year reunion – which by the way was one of the more awkward scenes I’ve ever watched in a film – becomes a terrible experience, they have an idea. Miri’s high school crush ends up being gay and dating a gay porn star, so they decide to make their own porno.

Pretty desperate, I know, but they address that point in the film. That anyone else with options wouldn’t even have the luxury of considering making porn, but because they were so out of choices, they went down the erotic filmmaking route.

I, for one, was glad to see Seth Rogan not in a Judd Apatow movie – not that I don’t love Judd Apatow movies, I do – but Seth was being pigeon-holed into one role. This role wasn’t all that far from Judd’s movies, but Kevin Smith gave Seth more power. He’s always been the one without the power. Even in Knocked Up, he was the slacker that Katherine Heigl was trying to change. Mind you, he and Elizabeth Banks were both pretty helpless in this movie, but when they did come up with the idea of making a porno, he was the brains of the operation. And I loved the end. I won’t ruin it for you – but I’ll just tell you that amidst all the cocks and tits and fucks, there’s a genuine love story.

Wow, that sounded quite odd.

But if you aren’t shy about sex in movies, I’d recommend this film wholeheartedly. And it’s only about 90 minutes long, so it doesn’t take a lot of patience.
