Zack and Miri Make a Porno

(2-disc Edition) (R)

Movie: 3 stars

Disc: 3 1/2 stars out of 4

Not since his near-masterpiece "Chasing Amy" has filmmaker Kevin Smith been so funny or insightful regarding matters of the heart. With the vocabulary of a sailor and the overcharged hormones of an 8th-grader, Smith crafts profane dialogue that has the rhythm and cadence of David Mamet without all the pointy-headed dread. It's ironic that the title characters (Seth Rogan and Elizabeth Banks), platonic friends since grade school, are driven by economic woes to make an adult film. It could prove to be a "how to" manual for millions of Americans now in the same boat.
