Lifelong platonic friends Zack and Miri look to solve their respective cash-flow problems by making an adult film together. As the cameras roll, however, the duo begin to sense that they may have more feelings for each other than they previously thought.
A comedy about a veteran NYPD cop whose rare baseball card is stolen. Since it's his only hope to pay for his daughter's upcoming wedding, he recruits his partner to track down the thief, a memorabilia-obsessed gangster.
Juan Carlos Hernández
Ollie Trinkie is a publicist, who has a great girlfriend, Gertrude, whom he marries and they are expecting a baby but while he is looking forward to being a father, he doesn't lighten his workload. Gertrude gives birth but dies in the process. Ollie doesn't live up to his responsibilities as a father. Eventually the strain and pressure of losing his wife and being a father gets to him and he has breakdown, which leads to his termination. So with nothing much to do he tries to be good father to his daughter, Gertie. He also meets a young woman name Maya, who likes him but he is still not over his wife. Written by

I have been a huge Kevin Smith fan for a long time. When I first saw the previews and whatnot for the movie I was a bit worried. This did not see like a Kevin Smith film, but after watching it, I can only say that this was an excellent film. It shows so much growth for a great film maker. While some will say that he continues to use the same cast for everything I find that to be one of his best attributes. He stays loyal to those who have been with him. The scene with Lee and Damon was one of the best in the movie. That was some vintage Smith. Through the movie he shows both the growth of his charaters along with his. He had me crying in few scenes, for both humor and drama. While I still believe that Chasing Amy and Mallrats are his best films, this is an excellent movie and will show those who say all he can do is pot and dirty jokes that he is the real deal.
