"The Funniest Movie of Smith's I've Seen."
-Kyle Smith, New York Post
Get ready for the wild comedy that goes where no movie has dared go before! Seth Rogen (Pineapple Express) and Elizabeth Banks (Role Models) star as two cash-strapped roommates who try to get out of debt by making an adult film. Once the cameras start rolling, things quickly get complicated... and hilarious! Writer/Director Kevin Smith is at his funniest, backed by a motley cast, including Craig Robinson ("The Office"), Jason Mewes (Clerks films), Justin Long (Live Free Or Die Hard), and Brandon Routh (Superman Returns). Critics promise, "If you liked The 40-Year-Old-Virgin, Knocked Up, and Superbad, you'll love Zack and Miri" (Shawn Edwards, Fox-TV).
Although it had a few laugh out loud moments, overall I found the film to be only slightly above mediocre. I bought it because I was in the mood for comedy and had heard great things about it, but I should have gone with my gut instinct - which told me that this wasn't going to be a movie for me.
