Okay. Time to get back in the swing of things.

Take two down on their luck 28 year old's and have them go to their 10 year high school reunion. Have them meet a gay porn actor and then, after the reunion have your intrepid stars lose their utilities. It's these desperate times that give them the idea to make a porno. It's really a story as old as time itself. When the going gets tough...fuck for money.

Zack and Miri is a romantic comedy, an incredibly crude and vulgar one, but still a romantic comedy. You know how it ends before it begins. Crude and vulgar are probably Smith's biggest hallmarks at this point. And, I think it works here.

Now, I've never been one to hide my Kevin Smith fandom. I think he makes some damn funny movies. They aren't all perfect, but I can certainly say that I enjoyed more of them than I disliked. Zack and Miri Make A Porno was no exception. And, I would say that would be typical among the other reviews that I've read. People who like his movies have tended to enjoy this one. People who haven't liked his movies in the past don't like this one either.
