NYT Review: Skin Flick? Nah, It’s a Love Story

“Zack and Miri Make a Porno,” in spite of its lewdness, follows a gee-whiz romantic-comedy formula that would not be out of place on the Disney Channel. — A. O. Scott Read the review

All in all it's a modern-day, Kevin Smith fairytale: a big-screen bearing, perhaps, of his soul at its sincerest and wittiest, if not filthiest.

Christine Champ, Film.com, 2011-05-06

 

Everyone on screen seems to be having so much fun.

Neely Tucker, Washington Post, 2008-10-31

 

The audience where I watched the movie laughed so hard that we all probably missed a third of the lines, and it was still one of the funnier movies I've seen this year.

Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle, 2008-10-31

 

Zack and Miri Make a Porno is crude and raunchy, but it's also a great date movie. See it with someone you love -- and want to grope.

Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald, 2008-10-31

 

There are laughs. Big, loud laughs. Laughs of self-recognition, laughs at social duplicity, laughs at prejudices of all types. Lots of laughs about the most basic of human functions. And many, many laughs at our own inhibitions.

Tom Long, Detroit News, 2008-10-31

 

[Rogen's] funny, it works.

Tom Maurstad, Dallas Morning News, 2008-10-31

 

While I wouldn't call the role of cheery, foul-mouthed Miri nuanced, Banks and Rogen click in a way that Rogen and Katherine Heigl in Knocked Up did not.

Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune, 2008-10-31

 

Zack and Miri Make a Porno, in spite of its lewdness, follows a gee-whiz romantic-comedy formula that would not be out of place on the Disney Channel.

A.O. Scott, New York Times, 2008-10-31

 

Smith may have pioneered this kind of upfront sex chat, but the Apatow team refined it. 'Zack and Miri' feels uncomfortably like a gruesome game of filth-talk oneupmanship, and it's hard to care who comes out on top.

Tom Huddlestone, Time Out, 2008-11-14

 

It's one thing for a movie to be dirty; it's another thing altogether for it to be plain sloppy.

Christopher Orr, The New Republic, 2008-11-03

 

Kevin Smith turns out to be reverent after all: he wants to separate true love from mere copulating for money, but his story mixes romance and porn so inextricably that he seems confused, and the movie trips over its own conceits.

David Denby, New Yorker, 2008-11-03

 

Seth Rogen is totally out of control. He's been marvelously funny in the past, and will be again, but get that party animal back in his cage.

Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal, 2008-10-31

 

Zack and Miri isn't very funny. Laugh-out-loud bits here are as rare as real breasts in an adult film.

Linda Barnard, Toronto Star, 2008-10-31

 

The jokes are forced, almost mechanical, in their crudeness. They're so carefully placed that they feel a little precious rather than spontaneous, which ends up defying that impulsive, animal thing inside us.

Stephanie Zacharek, Salon.com, 2008-10-31

 

The mood lurches around a bit, and the film itself feels a bit diluted -- as if Kevin Smith were doing Judd Apatow doing Kevin Smith. And Smith, and his fans, are far too original to settle for that for long.

Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger, 2008-10-31

 

Without the wit, raunchiness tends to feel uncomfortably forced. And the moments when Z&M works are, almost without exception, the ones that are more sweet than shocking. All the rest, frankly, feel like Apatow Lite.

Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, 2008-10-31

 

Despite all the waggish raunch-talk, it's just not especially funny. And despite all the agile intercourse (originally rated NC-17), it's frankly kind of a bore.

Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle, 2008-10-31

 

There may not be a special movie rating for this kind of coyness, but it definitely feels like emotional porn.

Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail, 2008-10-31

 

Other peoples' emotional intimacy can be downright embarrassing. Here, sadly, it's also boring.

Ty Burr, Boston Globe, 2008-10-31
