Zack and Miri Make a Poster

So, these are the posters everyone's been talking about.

I can understand why the MPAA banned the first one. Come on, guys. Didn't you see This Film is Not Yet Rated. Women can't be shown as enjoying oral sex. It's in the Torah.

But what about nudity? The second poster clearly features two nude representations of Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks. Look, their names are written in right by those arrows! I don't see how the MPAA can ban one and not the other. Hollywood is so confusing.

At the Toronto Film fest premiere last week, Smith said he loves Canada because we're so relaxed and we let him use the original poster.

Clearly it's because the stick figure representations in the second are frowning. It's the SMILE that makes the difference!

Hatter, Canada is now that much better than the States. First, you had hockey. Then it was universal health care. Now it's semi-dirty movie posters and the approval of Kevin Smith. I may have been born American, but I may have to die a Canadian. How would one go about doing that?

Caitlin, it's all so clear now. Thanks for being smarter than me!

I think the second poster is better.

I hate all modern posters.

They are just photoshopped pieces of shit.

I feel strongly on the matter.

Dear Kevin Smith,

Please go away.

Thanks,

I agree. Besides Rogan looking like a big cutie, the second poster is way better.

Not a fan of this movie concept and no longer a fan of Kevin Smith. But I kind of like the second treatment. It reminds me of an Erma Bombeck book cover "if life is a bowl of cherries..."

Haha - nice take. Those damned hypocrites allowing full frontal on one while fully clothed persons just can't get a break. Hmpph!
