Lifelong friends and roommates Zack (Seth Rogen) and Miri (Elizabeth Banks) are facing hard times and a mountain of debt. When the electricity and plumbing get cut off, they seize upon the idea of making a homegrown porno movie for some quick cash, enlisting the help of their friends. The two vow that having sex will not ruin their friendship. But as filming begins, what started out as a business proposition between friends turns into something much more.

(continued from the visual review)

LOVE HAPPENS. LOVE IS CENTRAL It is vintage Kevin Smith. There is filth and raunchiness and sexually explicit material, but his films have all-at their core-been about loving relationships either between best friends or romantic interests. In this film you get both: best friends who become love interests.

Ohh, porn! Knee jerk reaction to it is always negative. All though this film is a romance story, and not a porn movie, it does deal with porn. In the story, Zack and Miri attempt to do a porn film for financial reasons. In other words, the film looks at reasons why someone might become involved with porn. Actually, such an examination is good. Are you into porn? Does it consume too much of your time and energy? Do artificial relationships take place over real intimacy? If so, you need to explore the reasons why it has such a place in your life. You need to be in control, rather than to be controlled by an obsession. Be free.

This Film Is About Love Between People. Not ‘love’ between self and things (like porn). "Love is the difficult realization that something other than oneself is real." --Iris Murdoch, writer and philosopher
