Red Band Trailer: Zack and Miri Make a Porno

Elizabeth Banks and that fat guy from “Knocked Up” play longtime buds who have a bit of a cash problem — namely, they don’t have a whole lot of it. So they do what we all do when we’re having cash problems — we decide to hold auditions to make a porno movie. What, is it just me? Anyways, “Zack and Miri Make a Porno” is a Kevin Smith movie, and here’s a teaser trailer for it. It basically features Rogen and Banks in a theater ad-libbing to “auditions” that aren’t happening in front of them. You decide if it’s painfully unfunny or gut-busting comedy brilliance. I can’t decide.

Lifelong platonic friends Zack (Rogen) and Miri (Banks) look to solve their respective cashflow problems by making an adult film together. As the cameras roll, however, the duo begin to sense that they may have more feelings for each other than they previously thought.

Kevin Smith writes and directs.
