'Zack and Miri make a porno' Banned in Utah (the worst porno I ever seen)



Jonathan Crow's humorous candid review appearing in Yahoo Movies of the latest production of Kevin Smith who brought us 'Clerks' and 'Dogma';

"If you're looking forward to seeing Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks in director Kevin Smith's new R-rated comedy "Zack and Miri Make a Porno" this weekend and you live in Salt Lake City, you might be out of luck. Utah Jazz and Megaplex Theaters owner Larry Miller has refused to book the film. The chain's spokesman Cal Gunderson expressed concerns about the film with The New York Post, citing the film's "graphic nudity and graphic sex" and that it was "too close to an NC-17."

"The company's standards seem a little odd considering that the chain had no problems screening ultra-violent fare like "Saw V," which features beheadings and explicit self-mutilation. When asked why Megaplex Theaters did not object to the gory horror sequel, Gunderson had no comment."

I loved this movie!! A lovely, sensual, offbeat, explicit, gratuitous nudity, very funny love story, but a really, really bad porno!!!

I had no idea this was Kevin Smith's. Given this news, I will definately poke my head up (no pun intended) and put it on my to-see list.

And banning this but allowing Saw V? This trend toward tolerance of all things violent is a major grievance of mine. Thanks for pointing this out. Last I checked, Thou Shalt Not Kill is still in the Big 10 .. but haven't seen "Thou Shalt Not Show Thy Weenie."
