Zack And Miri Make An Online Trailer
Kevin Smith's latest looks goooood

03 September 2008  |  Written by Chris Hewitt  |  Source: IGN

We’ve been looking forward to Kevin Smith’s Zack And Miri Make A Porno for quite some time, and today’s web debut of the second trailer for the Seth Rogen/Elizabeth Banks starrer hasn’t dulled our appetite for some hardcore comedy.

As you might expect of a full trailer, this time you get much more plot – essentially, two long-time platonic friends, Zack (Rogen) and Miri (Banks) are so poverty-stricken that they decide to make a porno for some quick bucks – but also much more of the supporting cast, including what looks like a cracking cameo from Justin Long and a wonderful turn from the US Office’s Darryl Robinson.

Oh, and it’s a redband trailer – thankfully, non-US residents just have to type in their date of birth, so lie away, under-18s, lie away! – so you get a lot of swearing, and plenty of promises of nudity and filth. Thankfully, though, Smith appears to have reserved Jason Mewes’ tuberous cock and balls for the full theatrical release.

Pop along here to feast your eyes on Smith’s engorged trailer, and then come back here to tell us what you think. As for us, we think this could be shaping up to be the man’s best for some time, as it looks like the perfect cross between Smith’s more caustic side and the ever-maturing sentimental streak that has run through his films since Chasing Amy, with the central relationship in particular looking particularly well-realised and full of warmth.

And yes, there's a Star Wars gag in there, to make the long-term Smith fans feel at home. And Jeff Anderson's in there too. Yay!

RE: The only problem I have with this is...
L: elzupasmonkey ...is that the whole thing feels too cosy. As anyone who has seen porn recently knows it is getting a lot darker and a lot angrier. You get women being forced to vomit by forcing the male appendage down the back of their throats. That's dark, dark stuff. And this movie looks like nothing more than a Richard Curtis version of porno.. Any man that goes to see this should be ashamed of himself. But then again, he wasn't a man to begin with if he didn't realise t More

L: sanchia L: UTB Must just be me who didn't laugh then.  ot just you. I used to be a great fan of Smith back in my University days but I guess i have just outgrown him. This came across as being pretty poor and in some aspects juvenile. A shame really. t just seems like an amalgamation of various other "comedies", and ooh, a star wars joke. ho ho. More

This guy is hilarious in Pineapple Express and Knocked Up, so dont do him the disservice of getting his name wrong. He plays the character Darryl in The Office. Can't wait for this film.

Looks like it could be even better than Clerks II, Smith's best film yet in my opinion. Cannot wait for this but as I must, I choose to accept it's gonna be the best thing ever, thank goodness this trailer rules. More
