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.

    I remember a time when people used to sit down and craft a joke. It would go through rewrites. The would worry about things like rhythm and timing.

    Wrong!! Don’t bother bustin’ your hump trying to live up to the greats! Your supposed to lazily just deliver the first thing that pops in you head in a monotone fashion!

    “Uh..How long is your d!@%? Isn’t that funny? I just
    “WROTE” that…I know! So is it like long or short? I know! I don’t know where I come up with the stuff?! Hold on..I got another one coming…So does it like..bend to the side? Like it’s crooked?! I know!! Another one! Who knew comedy was so EASY!!”

    Kevin Smith wrote the movie and it’s called improvisation. Also, it’s not so much what he’s saying but the way it’s being delivered.

    Also if it’s not some thing you find funny then fine, leave it be and pay your attention to some thing you find funny. I personally don’t think Half Baked is that funny but A LOT of people do. That’s fine, but I’m not gonna go and bash the shit out of it cause I don’t like it.
