Zack & Miri

K. and I watched Zack & Miri Make a Porno this weekend. It was definitely another downward step in Kevin Smith's steady decline, but still plenty charming and funny enough to be entertaining. Seth Rogen is a great comic leading man and Elizabeth Banks gives pretty good funny for someone so cute. The basic concept is that these two platonic roommates stumble upon the idea of making an amateur porno in order to pay the bills (although don't go into it expecting to see much of Seth or Elizabeth's skin). Joining them in their endeavor are two Smith regulars, Jason Mewes (Jay) and Jeff Anderson (Randall from Clerks); two real life porn stars, Traci Lords and Katie Morgan (who adorably steals a lot of scenes); and Craig Robinson (Darryl from The Office). Oddly, I got the most laughs from an actor who I thought I loathed, Justin Long (the Mac guy), who was surprisingly kind of fantastic in his cameo.
