TITLE:Zack and Miri Make a Porno
DIRECTED BY: Kevin Smith
STARS: Seth Rogen, Elizabeth Banks

WHAT IT'S ABOUT: Down on their luck, lifelong friends and roomies Zack (Rogen) and Miri (Banks) embark on a quest to make a fortune by shooting and starring in an amateur porn flick. But if they really go through with doing the deed on camera, will their friendship sustain?

WHY WE'RE EXCITED ABOUT IT: Kevin Smith may not hit it out of the park every time, but when he's on, his films are solidly funny. We can't wait to see how the combination of Smith and Rogen works on screen, and to see how Smith pulls off a film about the making of a porn film while still keeping in "R" territory (the film reportedly undwernt cuts to keep it out of the dreaded "NC-17" zone). Still, just the words "Seth Rogen as a porn star" in the same sentence make this one worth a view, and Smith as the director gives us hope that Zack and Miri will be a fun, quirky romp.
