I very much enjoyed the gleefully filthy new sex-comedy ZACK AND MIRI MAKE A PORNO (***1/2) from master-of-crude Kevin Smith. It's probably the raunchiest written studio movie I have ever heard up on the big screen. It's also extremely funny, very heartfelt, and well acted by the entire clowning-around cast. Seth Rogen can do no wrong in my book and I have a major movie-crush on Elizabeth Banks. Also, the film is given a boost (big time) by the sly humor of Craig Robinson, who kills every week on THE OFFICE. His dry underplayment of every line of dialogue is priceless; I hope he continues to get work in feature films. ZACK AND MIRI MAKE A PORNO isn't high art but it's a lot of dirty-minded fun and ranks as one of the top three movies of Smith's career.

My full review will be posted soon.
