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.

Justin Long's scene with the long haired Tom Cruise look-alike was the best part of the movie. (Not saying much, I know).

I thought that was enjoyably funny. Can't really remember a lot of it now though except that Star Wars was somehow involved. And the Dutch rudder.

Yeah, I have the feeling I'm never going to forget the Dutch Rudder.

Since nobody else has mentioned it, let me be the one to commend you for two straight days featuring the lovely tushies of ethnic women. Kudos!

Justin Long
I've re-watched Justin Long's cameo over and over. Definitely the best part of the movie!
