Scene From the Film

Impressions In Short
I guess the surprise of the movie is that despite being rather vulgar, it’s actually a very sweet love story. It was a lot of fun :)

More About the Film
There’s not that much to say about it to be honest. It’s just lots of fun and silliness.
Me, Kin and Ewelina were all a little surprised that the porn scenes went as far as they did. I think we were expecting most of it to happen off screen and that was not the case. We even got a hilarious full frontal from Jason Mewes. Though at the same time we all felt that since they *did* go that far, it was a bit weird that the sex between Zack and Miri was so prudish. I know it was supposed to be soppy and everything, but it felt like it was from a different movie almost.
The cast was excellent. I like it when comedy’s done like that… Regardless of whether it was a comic scene or a more emotional one, they were all always in character and playing it earnestly. I loved that :)

Yes, if you’re in the mood for a comedy and don’t mind the humour being rather vulgar :)
