So here it is: the "red-band" — aka "super inappropriate for work, especially if the sound is on" — version of the trailer for Kevin Smith's Zack and Miri Make a Porno, one of the 13 movies I'm most excited to see this Fall. There's actually not too much in there all of us adults haven't heard before in a Rogen flick (you know, a lot of f-bombs and explicit language used to describe both male and female genitalia). And since Smith fought hard for and won the right to give this movie an R rating instead of NC-17, we know the movie will never get all that crass.
Still, it's . . . about making a porno. So you'll probably laugh a lot when you see this but will feel pretty dirty afterward. In addition to learning that best friends and roommates Zack and Miri (Rogen and Elizabeth Banks) are having trouble making the rent, we meet some of the other cast members, including the scene-stealing Craig Robinson as their friend who auditions women for the porno and a character played by Traci Lords named "Bubbles" who has an interesting, uh, trick.
Like I said: totally unsuitable for work (unless of course you work in porn), or with kids around, or even puppies and kittens peeking over your shoulder. It is dir-tay and I thought twice before posting — but then I felt inspired by the words of young Silver on 90210 who waxed philosophically that it's a blogger's duty to make trouble. The movie's set to hit theaters on Halloween. To check out the trailer just
