As Justin Long suggests quite early on in the film, I am exactly not the demographic for Zack and Miri make a Porno. Imagine it as a kind of When Harry Met Sally with vulgar language and enhanced breasts and yet more fantastically faked orgasms. Zack and Miri have been friends since high school, but their lives haven’t amounted to much. A chance meeting with porn star gets them planning to get their way out of debt by making their own porno. They enlist an unlikely group of misfits, but it becomes quite clear that the two friends are in for more than just the performance of a lifetime. Whether they realise this or not is kind of the point of the entire movie. Sweet. But foul-mouthed.

Zack and Miri filmed in Pittsburgh during the winter and the only thing you can really say about that is: dammit, why the hell hasn’t everyone moved to Florida? There are numerous cultural references to Pittsburgh and the neighborhood of Monroeville throughout the film – including a drunken Steelers fan, a Penguins Stanley Cup flag and Iron City beer.  One scene in the film was shot at the Monroeville Mall – which itself was the setting of the original “Dawn of the Dead”.

One other thing: the role of Miri was apparently written for Rosario Dawson. Say wha??? Though Ms Dawson indeed rocks, Elizabeth Banks completely owns this part.
