Finally, after falling WAY behind on their bills, they mutually decide to make a porno movie in hopes of defraying the costs of their debts. Instead of making your standard home-video porn, they try something much more ambitious & hire some other "Thespians" to fill out the cast. These include characters played by real-life porn stars (such as an aging Tracy Lords).
The result equals some funny scenes here & there. However, it seems to me that this movie had SO much more potential than what the final product materialized as. My biggest "beef" with the film was its fixation on bathroom humor. Not only am I not "big" on bathroom humor, but I think that many times it's thrown into movies because the writers couldn't think up anything that was actually funny.
In the case of this film, there's a whole host of material they could have drawn right out of porn - literally. There could have been funny & erotic discussions about what each of the pseudo-pornstars was comfortable with on-set. And, being that Elizabeth Banks is stunningly beautiful & Seth Rogan is a goon, they could have explored the obvious issue of how Miri was SO out of Zack's league. (Where are the Ron Jeremy allusions when you need them? Paging Ron Jeremy - you have a phone call on line #1!)
While her talents were wasted in this film (kind of like Rachael McAdams in Wedding Crashers - Unrated (Widescreen New Line Platinum Series), Elizabeth Banks was not only by-far the most beautiful woman, but also she was by-far the most talented actor/actress. She caught my eye in her portrayal of Laura Bush in W. (Widescreen) the other night. I'd like to see much more of her in the future!
For all the guys out there who are wondering whether Elizabeth strips down in the movie or not, the answer is "no." Following the usual formula of films in this genre, just about every other woman in the film takes her top off EXCEPT the one you really want to see get naked. Given the title of the film, that in-itself is a bit of a downer!
The 2nd disc does not contain a whole lot of worthwhile material. In fact, most of it is downright silly special features. There are 5 mini dual interviews of Seth Rogan & Elizabeth Banks which are semi-interesting. About the only thing I learned that was curious was that Ms. Banks enjoys watching porn movies in her personal life - which is cool! Rogan is very annoying in the interviews & seems to think that everything both he & Banks says is hilarious.
Overall, this is a semi-funny movie. It's worth seeing, but probably not more than once. Right now, more than anything, I'm hoping that it launches Ms. Banks career into higher realms of cinematic productions!
