Zack and Miri Make a Porno is the second film by Kevin Smith that takes place out of the Jay and Silent Bob universe (known as the View Askewniverse). Zack and Miri are high school friend who share an apartment, but do not make enough money to pay the bills. After their electricity and water gets shut off and a conversation with someone at the 10 year high school reunion, they decide that if they make a porno they could make enough money to catch up on the bills and not get evicted from the apartment. Do they succeed, I won't tell.

The film follows the rules of a Chick Flick, but with the Kevin Smith twist too it. It isn't nearly as funny as Clerks or Dogma, but way funnier than Jersey Girl (although I would much rather make a porno with Liv Tyler than Elizabeth Banks). The closest comparison would be Chasing Amy.

The film is full of foul language so I wouldn't bring a kid or a grandmom to see this. Just come with your girlfriend or wife, and you will have a good time. The film is hysterical. I did laugh the whole time, as did the everyone in the full theater. There are great cameos from Justin Long, Jim Norton, and Brandon Routh. Stay for the credits, there is a very funny scene put in there.

Huge speciation for this movie I love it from the word go. Wow it was not about the porn. Some might get the feeling that is sexual packed movie. No way has this movie explained lots about the life challenges. They are finding solutions with making porno. Biggest case is they don't know really how to do it. Enjoyed much as I could, well made movie Zack and Miri Make a Porno saw it by reliable site http://www.80millionmoviesfree.com
