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.
It's the summer of 1994, and the streets of New York are pulsing with hip-hop. Set against this backdrop, a lonely teenager named Luke Shapiro spends his last summer before university selling marijuana throughout New York City, trading it with his unorthodox psychotherapist for treatment, while having a crush on his stepdaughter.
A couple who is expecting their first child travel around the U.S. in order to find a perfect place to start their family. Along the way, they have misadventures and find fresh connections with an assortment of relatives and old friends who just might help them discover "home" on their own terms for the first time.
Zack and Miri are two lifelong platonic friends who make an adult film to pay the rent of their apartment. With their friend Delaney, the couple set out for auditionees for their porn film, but in the process of filming, they realize they feel more for each other than they had before. Written by
During the mid-1990s, Kevin Smith was commissioned by Warner Brothers to write a new Superman movie, the screenplay of which was eventually titled "Superman Lives." At one time, Tim Burton was attached to direct and Jon Peters was attached to produce the film. The project fell through in the late 1990s. The next attempt to resurrect the Superman franchise, however, was successfully made into a movie: Superman Returns (2006), starring Brandon Routh, who appears in Zack and Miri Make a Porno (2008) as Bobby Long.

After excitedly wrapping up the first night of filming, Miri calls Stacy "Stacer" (likely getting her tongue twisted when acknowledging "Stacey, Lester..."). See more »
So... I guess we should do this.
I think we should probably wait, uh, just until I lose another 20-30 pounds.
Stop it. You look good.
So... what about me? How do I look?
I mean, you look beautiful - you always look... so beautiful, so I guess it's not a big deal. But you... you look amazing.
[grabbing his hand lovingly, then quickly beginning to swing it back and forth]
Okay! Let's go make a porno!

For those who love the movies of Kevin Smith (the King of Bathos) as much as I do, it's important that you wait until you see the bluescreen before you leave the theater. That's right, watch the titles, wait *through* the color bar, and don't leave until you see the parental guidance screen (again). I'd be writing a spoiler if I told you why, but if you like this movie you'll want to keep watching till it's *all over*.
This clearly is not a movie for prudes or anyone who can be offended by (in no order) making fun of gay people (in a friendly way), making fun of heterosexual people (in a friendly way), poop jokes, in fact, jokes about or show of any bodily function, including copulation, swearwords of any variety, making fun of sex, making fun of marriage, someone sitting on a toilet, um well, offended by just about anything. In fact, if you can be offended by anything except violence and intolerance, this movie is probably not for you.
However, if you'd like some lighthearted fun about cappuccino-flavored love, and you like Kevin Smith's stuff, go for it.
