Zack and Miri Fighting An NC-17
According to News Askew, Zack and Miri Make a Porno may be fighting an NC-17 rating. Their sources include “Zack” himself, Mr. Seth Rogen.
Personally, while I understand that an NC-17 equals marketing death, I’m not all that worried or upset. If Zack and Miri earns an NC-17, that just means far fewer annoying kids in the theater. And, seriously, self-absorbed teenagers talking on their Godforsaken cellphones throughout the entire show have been responsible for ruining about 90% of the movies I’ve seen in the last few years. So, fuck ‘em. Give me an NC-17 rated movie and let the thing find its audience on home video, which is where all Kevin Smith films eventually find their audience anyway.
