zack and miri made their porno

I watch Zack and Miri Make a Porno today, and it was a fairly good movie.

It was probably about as close to a romance as Kevin Smith can get, despite the fact that ONCE AGAIN, the word 'fuck' was used as a noun, verb, adjective, adverb, object of the preposition and in just about any other way possible. I don't get the appeal of using it two or three times in the same sentence.

If you haven't seen it, Zack & Miri are platonic friends in serious money trouble. They decide to make a porno because one of their old high school friends makes about $100k a year making and distibuting his own porn. Quick! Somebody tell that to the folks who make and distribute their own porn.

BTW, Traci Lords is aging well;).

Here are a few of my favorite lines:

Miri, trying to work up the nerve to attend their high school reunion: "Even though we’re broke and we don’t amount to anything, we’re still better than these people, right?"
Zack: "No, not at all. We’re probably not even as good as most of them, unless one of them is a crack head or something."

Miri, on the subject of making your own porn: "If it’s so easy, why doesn’t everyone do it?"
Zack: "Because other people have options and dignity, which we do not have…"

I know I will get hate mail for saying this, but Joe and I really liked Jersey Girl, and the couple in it (Bennifer) had a sweet romance in the first part of the movie, and Ben and Liv had a lovely romance in the second half. I thought that was probably the most romantic movie Kevin had, and probably would ever, put out at that time. Still do.

I never saw Jersey Girl because I can't stand Affleck.

And those are winning lines if I may say so! I enjoyed watching this one.
