To be honest, the reason I sort of completely forgot that he was making a new movie is because it was a non-Jersey Trilogy film. His last one was Jersey Girl, and a burn like Jersey Girl does not quickly heal. I was fearful that Mr. Smith might be making more some crappy, sugar-coated, heart-warming crap that never should have happened. (DISCLAIMER: I understand why he made Jersey Girl. I understand that sometimes, as an artist, you have to do something true to yourself, despite what your fans and critics want, and he was at that place and that time, so Jersey Girl happened. But it doesn't mean I ever want to watch it again.)
So I was pretty excited when I found out the title of his new non-Jersey Trilogy movie would be "Zack & Miri Make a Porno". (I then promptly forgot he was making a new movie until I checked my Facebook Fanpage Updates and noticed he had a new blog post, and went, "Oh yeah, that's right.") The trailer? Looks AWESOME. I should have more faith in my heroes, really, I should.
I can't help but be SUPER PUMPED about this new movie. I LOVE that Seth Rogen is in it, I LOVE that Jeff Anderson is making a cameo, and I do believe that Kevin Smith has the power to make heartwarming films. It's just that he accomplishes this much better with fuck jokes rather than with Jennifer Lopez. I believe this in my heart, because I've seen Clerks II, I've seen Chasing Amy, the man has the power to take filthy movies and make you go "Awww!" at the end. I get the feeling this will be one of those movies.
I KNOW WHAT IT IS. Jersey Girl is like when Holden and Banky decided to go separate ways and not make Bluntman and Chronic anymore, and the fans were like, "Lame."
Anyway. I don't even know what I'm talking about anymore.
