In the main, I respect Kevin Smith and have enjoyed several of his acting and directorial works including Clerks (1994), Chasing Amy (1997) and Clerks II (2006). But I hated Dogma (1999) and his excessive use of over-the-top bathroom humour.

seth rogen and elizabeth banks - zack and miri make a porno (2008) - watching stripper Zack and Miri Make a Porno had some funny moments and some tender moments. But, alas, it had too many cringe-worthy, putting my hands in front of my eyes, moments. I’ve outgrown Kevin Smith.

seth rogen and elizabeth banks - zack and miri make a porno (2008) - walking I’m tiring too, of Seth Rogen it seems.  I enjoyed him in The 40 Year Old Virgin (2005) but wasn’t terribly impressed with him in either Knocked Up (2007) or Superbad (2007). He played the same, odd, yet endearing lug in all these movie.

seth rogen and elizabeth banks - zack and miri make a porno (2008) - in theater There’s a world of difference between Elizabeth Banks in this movie and her recent, good, performance as Laura Bush in W. (2008). I wouldn’t have noticed it was the same actress but for reviewing her filmography on IMDb.com prior to writing this. As my friend pointed out, at least this shows Banks can play distinctly different roles.

justin long, seth rogen and elizabeth banks - zack and miri make a porno (2008) Justin Long’s extended cameo, as the boyfriend of someone Elizabeth Banks’ character pined-for in high school, was strange and amusing. Jason Mewes was, predictably, what Jason Mewes always does. Nothing new to see here. Move along.

If it isn’t clear by this point, I cannot recommend this movie to anyone other than die-hard Kevin Smith fans. This will be the last Kevin Smith flick I see for a long, long time.
