Rolling Stone

By Peter Travers
Naughty and nice is a killer-hard combo to pull off. Stick with Rogen and Banks. They rock it.

Along with the awkward romantic exchanges that always seem to find their way into Smith's movies, there's also a sweetness that you don't...

Chicago Sun-Times

By Roger Ebert
Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks make a lovable couple; she's pretty and goes one-for-one on the bleep language, and Rogen, how can I say...

Rudely silly rather than transgressively shocking, Zack and Miri is the sort of bawdy but fundamentally decent farce you could take Grandma...

The Hollywood Reporter

By Kirk Honeycutt
Despite shortcomings and implausibility linked to their roles as written, Rogen and Banks come off with surprising charm and grace.

Philadelphia Inquirer

By Carrie Rickey
By the halfway mark, Rogen's performance, like his voice, is less cuddly than grating, and the carbonated giggle that is Elizabeth Banks...

USA Today

By Claudia Puig
Longs to be a smutty film with a heart of gold. Instead, it's a funny concept whose execution does not live up to its potential.

New York Daily News

By Elizabeth Weitzman
The moments when "Z&M" works are, almost without exception, the ones that are more sweet than shocking. All the rest, frankly, feel like...

Entertainment Weekly

By Lisa Schwarzbaum
A Smith production is always noisy, shambling, and liberally smutty on the outside while conservatively gooey on the inside.

Wall Street Journal

By Joe Morgenstern
It's really dumb, even though it starts promisingly and continues, in a self-infatuated way, to consider itself quite bright.

Funny but be warned!

By twisted_pain111
Warning, this movie is only for people who can take CRUDE, NASTY, and CHILDISH jokes. It's been a while since I've seen a movie that passes quite a bit of barriers. But to get to the point. Wow, I...

incredibly Funny !

By ebecktaz
This is classic kevin smith, only writer who can pull a romance out of a porn shoot. If you enjoyed any of his movies you will enjoy this, same twisted take on things as ever, just like clerks 2 and...

Zack and Miri make a Porno scores!!!!!

By Adrn5150
What i really liked about Zach and Miri Make A Porno (silly broadcast tv stations that just say Zack and Miri....like the word PORNO is sooo taboo during prime time) is it was a lot rolled into...

ZACK & MIRI MAKE A PORNO – SUBTLETY was NOT an Option! =

By jimchudnow
(Based on an advance preview:) Crude. Racy. Dirty. Raunchy. Shocking. FUNNY! That pretty much describes the latest effort of director Kevin Smith (of ‘CLERKS’ fame). This is the story of the...

Suprisingly A Must See!

By zacharius25
This movie was really raunchy, but non-stop laughs. I would only say this type of movie isn't for everyone (i.e. - kids under 16 or parents over 40, generally speaking) but for most everyone else this...

More Smith Gold!

By nwogiant33
I'm a huge fan of Kevin Smith, and this movie doesn't disappoint. It's the best of both worlds, you have a good romance story for the ladies, and plenty of dirty jokes and bits for the guys....

The love story trumps any porn

By delere
I wasn't sure what to expect on this one. Yes there is adult language (not coarse, grotesque or degrading) , one full frontal of a male and one of a female, and some very cheesy highly caricatured...
