Kevin Smith is clearly obsessed with comic books and weed, so maybe it's no wonder that he's good at making movies about guys who banter easily and platonically with women but long to get off the just-friends track and take it to the next level. That's pretty much the entire idea behind Zack and Miri Make a Porno, but he explores the idea with even greater depth in his earlier Chasing Amy. Making the woman a lesbian (or at least bisexual) adds a new twist, but really, the movie is about Holden's (Ben Affleck) sexual hang-ups than Alyssa's (Joey Lauren Adams). His wounded male vanity sabotages both his budding romance with Alyssa and his longtime bromance with Banky (Jason Lee). Affleck's fresh-faced-dude performance made him a star, but Lee and Adams keep stealing the movie out from under him. Their conversation comparing their injuries incurred while performing oral sex is both a brilliant spoof of the scene in Jaws where Richard Dreyfuss and Robert Shaw compare scars and a hilariously filthy tour de force of its own. Smith is a not-so-secret moralist and sentimentalist, but that doesn't mean he's not capable of plenty of wicked, profane fun, too.
