Score

Kevin Smith shows he’s lost no appetite for sex gags, buckets of swearing, and the romantic pairing of hairy chubby guys.

In these times of financial hardship, it’s hard to earn a quick buck. So best friends Zack and Miri decide to do so with a quick… well, the title gives it away doesn’t it?

This latest outing from Kevin Smith shows that at 38 he’s lost no appetite for sex gags, buckets of swearing, and the romantic pairing of hairy chubby guys like Seth Rogen (Zack) with blonde beauties like Elizabeth Banks (Miri). But if it ain’t broke and you try to fix it, you end up with Jersey Girl – a lesson for us all.

What it lacks in surprises, Zack and Miri makes up for with nob gags and a good cast, including Smith stalwart Jason Mewes, a camped-up Justin Long and porn star Traci Lords with an interesting line in bubble blowing. It’s only when Zack and Miri start wearing their hearts on their sleeves that things get less exciting, but isn’t that the same with all relationships?

Anticipation

Solid comic credentials, though Smith is more miss than hit.
