Hollywood’s Latest Warped Idea of Romance, USA Today Helps in New Low

By Debbie Schlussel
In Hollywood’s warped and twisted trash they put forth on America, there’s unfortunately never an ultimate nadir in how low the industry will go in making our great nation its giant circular file.
The latest is the “romance” movie, “Zack & Miri Make a Porno,” out later this year, written and directed by Kevin Smith and now shooting. It stars Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks. Nope, it’s not a porn flick. It’s a major motion picture put out by a major studio. The story: two friends, Zack and Miri, are desperate to pay off debts, so they make their own X-rated film. But, in making the “film,” they soon discover their romantic feelings for each other.
Awww. Prime Valentine’s Day material. . . at Jackson State Prison.


Oh, and to add to the “romance,” USA Today asked stars Rogen and Banks to “share some candid thoughts from the set,” like what they worry about in preparing for a sex scene. I kid you not–That tastelessness (yes, I admit it’s semi-funny, but mostly gross) appeared in the paper. I’m not repeating it here.
What’s next–Hollywood doing a “mainstream” movie about bestiality and calling it “interspecies love”? Oh, wait, Kevin Smith already did that.
Don’t just luck up your women. Lock up your whole family. And throw away the key.

Is there a more overrated filmmaker than Kevin Smith? I think not. I never saw Clerks II, only because fifteen minutes of Clerks was more than enough to cure me of insomnia. Mallrats was an hour (I didn’t watch the whole thing for the reasons listed above) that I’ll never get back. And this guy is considered a genius.

Well see, it’s mostly the younger people like myself that are more familar with Kevin Smith. If I dare say that he’s overrated…I’ll be considered “irrelevant” and recieve death threats.
So yes, he’s glorifed by the younger people in this country. You wonder why some of them are doing marajuana? He’s to thank for it. Bluntman and Cronic….anyone??

started to watch clerks 2, did not get the humor. Just because they curse, does not make it funny.

Have you seen Once, the Irish movie? Wonderful little film, and truly romantic (and moral).
