Kevin Smith and Seth Rogen’s “Porno” Avoids An NC-17

|

It’s tough to make an R-rated porno film, but Kevin Smith has pulled it off. The director successfully appealed an NC-17 rating for his Zack and Miri Make A Porno, starring Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks. The film was given the commercially crippling Rating Formerly Known As X three times before Smith was able to convince the board that parents should be able to take their kids to his heartwarming tale of two lifelong friends who fall in love while creating an amateur porn company.

While relatively few movies have been able to win an appeal from the notoriously pro-violence/anti-sex MPAA (watch the hilarious documentary This Film Is Not Yet Rated to learn more about the bizarre process), this is actually the second time Kevin Smith has made the board to change its mind. Check out five of the movies Zack and Miri will be joining in the MPAA Appeals Board Hall Of Fame. [Coming Soon]
