Zack and Miri Make a Porno Poster Too Racy For U.S.

|

Kevin Smith‘s newest movie, Zack and Miri Make a Porno has a controversial title, and we’ve come to expect films full of obscenity from the writer and director of such lines as “Try not to suck any dick on your way to the parking lot!” and inventor of the stinkpalm. But, just as our mother wouldn’t allow us to see Dirty Dancing because it “sounded” filthy, the MPAA has tried to stand in Smith’s way regarding the film’s rating (no NC-17 for this bad boy, Smith made an appeal for an R rating and won) and now they’ve blocked a poster for the film because they deemed it too vulgar.

In the ad, the stars of the film, Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks, appear to have some visitors, uh, down south. The MPAA must have some pretty dirty minds, it’s totally obvious that it’s just a couple of people helping tie Seth and Elizabeth’s shoes while kneeling in front of them. Said Smith about the ban on the ad: “When you’ve got the word ‘porno’ in the title, naturally, the marketing materials are gonna be scrutinized more closely by the MPAA. I understand they’ve got a job to do, but c’mon … this image isn’t that dirty; they’re both fully clad.” Sadly the ad, while available online, will only be used in the film’s marketing in Canada — apparently they’re mature enough to handle it.
