Zack and Miri Make a Porno is the eighth feature film directed by Kevin Smith. On loan from the Judd Apatow repertory company, Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks play best buds/roommates Zack and Miri. Already living paycheck-to-paycheck, the roomies' situation becomes economically desperate, so they decide to shoot a porno together. Despite some flaws, this is one of 2008's least erratic comedies, thanks to a solid script and a game cast (Justin Long and Brandon Routh absolutely kill in the funniest high school reunion scenes since Romy & Michelle). Favorite scene: When Zack and Miri finally get down to the business of making a porno, "Hold Me Up" by Live turns the lifelong friends' first sexual encounter into a moment of transcendence. Second favorite: the chocolate frosting scene.
