A step in the right direction

Finally, After two weeks of mediocre movies, I got to see a pretty good film. Zack and Miri Make a porno is pretty much what the title says it is. Kinda like Snakes on a Plane, the title gets straight to the point. Directed by fanboy director Kevin Smith, two life long friends played by Judd Apatow film vets Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks, who also live together but are not together, are way behind on their bills. After having thier utilities turned off they decide the only way to get the money they need is to shoot a prnographic film that they can sell tho their former class mates. Bascially from there is the pattern for every comedic movie from hollywood where the main characters strive to achive something monumentous. They set up, something goes wrong, they almost give up, a miraculous solution presents itself and they are finally able to do what they need to do. Over the course of filming, our two main characters finally, after knowing each other for their entire lives and living together for who knows how many years, realize that they love each other. Zack and Miri does have some language and a few scenes of questionable content but in the end is a predictable and sweet movie that has as many endearing moments as it does laugh out loud moments. On the Heath Scale, I give Zack and Miri make a porno a score of 6.5 out of 10.
