There is a sweet, romantic side to Kevin Smith, and despite the title of his new film, "Zack and Miri Make a Porno," you can sense how much he wants to yield to that side. Yet he simply can't resist wallowing in nonstop gutter talk and adolescent jokes about sex and bodily waste.
When your ears finally grow immune to the raunchy dialogue, the romantic comedy comes into clearer focus. Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks are enormously appealing as longtime roommates who have no idea they love each other. Yes, it's all hearts and flowers if you just remember to take those anal sex jokes in stride.
