Making the Grades

Because we usually only review G, PG, and PG-13 movies at Parent Previews we did not review this title. For your convenience, we have provided some brief information about the film's synopsis and content.

Note:The MPAA rated Zack and Miri Make a Porno R on appeal for strong crude sexual content including dialogue, graphic nudity and pervasive language.

The MPAA previously rated Zack and Miri Make a Porno NC-17 in 2008. The decision was appealed and the film was re-rated R. (Click here to learn more about the MPAA Ratings System.)

Synopsis:

Paying the bills is a problem for both Zack (Seth Rogan) and Miri (Elizabeth Banks). To make some quick cash, the good friends decide to get into the porno industry. But as things heat-up on their movie set, so do their feelings for one another.

Director: Kevin Smith

Cast: Seth Rogen, Elizabeth Banks.

Content Information:

This additional information about the movie's content is taken from the notes of various Canadian Film Classification boards:

Violence:

- Occasional gory and grotesque images.

Sexual Content:

- Frequent use of sexual references as well as crude and descriptive sexual language.

- Frequent portrayals of simulated sexual activity.

- Full frontal nudity shown in a sexual situation.

- Male and female rear and frontal nudity shown in a non-sexual context (naked breast and buttocks shown in some detail).

Language:

-Pervasive use of the sexual expletive (many in a sexual context).

- Frequent use of intense and aggressive coarse language, including scatological slangs, profanities and vulgar expressions.

- Frequent use of ethno-cultural slurs.

Drugs and Alcohol:

- Some substance abuse shown and discussed.

Of Special Note:

Actor Seth Rogan has starred in other films in this same genre, like Superbad and Knocked Up. Another desperate duo makes their own movies (but not the pornographic kind) in Be Kind Rewind.

Remember when it was embarrassing to mention pornography in public? Now, a movie about making a porno film unashamedly plays in mainstream theaters. Click here to learn more about the trend to popularize pornography.
