Zack and Miri Make a Porno (2008) R - 3½ Stars

Not a bad attempt at humor, Zack and Miri Make a Porno actually has some laughs as it touches you in your soft spot. Though fairly predictable, Rogen keeps the script rolling with his pretty funny one liners.

Zack (Seth Rogen) and Miri Linky (Elizabeth Banks) are platonic friends living together in a financial demise. With their 2nd eviction notice at the door, they're about to be thrown out of their home. While Zack is at his 10 year high school reunion, he chats with an old schoolmate who has become a porno star. Zack decides desperate times call for desperate measures and suggests making a low budget porno himself to save financial ruin. With the help of friends, they begin auditions for their version of "Star Whores." When Zack and Miri make their naked debut, they discover a romantic love the two have kept suppressed all these years making their relationship, and their movie, a success.

I have a running list by my computer of movies (esp. the All Roads Lead Home one) that you have reviewed - thanks a bunch. I don't comment often but that doesn't mean I'm not reading them (just so you know) - but I miss your other blog, you haven't written in awhile. Hope everything is ok. I know we write in the dark and never know if people read us - just a quick note to let you I do!

Awwwwwwwwww thanks so much suZen. I've been trying real hard to keep a movie a day on line and sometimes with work and a movie after (haha), let's just say there is never enough time in the day. Always love your posts too!
