Zack and Miri’s title’s in the name of fun

Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks in Zack and Miri Make a Porno
Readers may have noticed a few ads on the Lucire site for the Kevin Smith movie, Zack and Miri Make a Porno. Don’t worry: we haven’t gone R18 on the audience: it is a comedy and if you do click through, there’s nothing objectionable. The mini-site itself has an age verification page just to be on the safe side.
   The movie opens October 31 and we hear that in the US, some media have refused to run the ads because of the title. The US. The country which is quite all right with showing plenty of blood and guts on regular television (their cop shows are getting more graphic with showing corpses) has a problem with the word Porno. The country which gave us free pornographic sites.
   Some ads there now have Zack and Miri only, but it takes the fun out of it. I saw the trailer when the ads started running on this site, and it is what you expect. Funny and mildly naughty, but no more so than a Benny Hill show would be if the man were alive today.
   Zack and Miri star Seth Rogen (Pineapple Express) and Elizabeth Banks (W.) in the title roles. The plot begins fairly simply: platonic friends Zack and Miri have financial problems, which they think could be alleviated by making a blue movie. They later begin to realize they may have more feelings for one another. Click here for more.
