* CensoredTitle:
** Many posters listed the movie as ''Zack and Miri'', while others looked like the page image without the title at the bottom, carrying the tagline "Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks made a movie so outrageous that we can't even tell you the title"
** Most of the DVD covers also have the title as just ''Zack and Miri''. Presumably, places such as Walmart would not have stocked the movie under its full name.
** Not just posters, but also TV ads. Kevin Smith once complained about the NFL banning trailers of his films during games, saying they were inappropriate, but allowing commercials for beer and ED prescriptions.



* MoralGuardians: They didn't take too kindly to the film, the poster or even ''the title''. Which is probably why the movie was released on DVD in many places as simply ''Zack and Miri''. Apparently, the marketing people feared the possibility of [[ThinkOfTheChildren children asking their parents what a porno was]] if they saw the title, to which Smith, himself a father and who didn't believe the title was vulgar, angrily replied [[SarcasmMode "God forbid parents talk to their children."]]



* PoorCommunicationKills / CannotSpitItOut: Of course, if Zack and Miri could actually talk to each other like two mature adults, the last third of the movie wouldn't happen.

* IntentionallyAwkwardTitle: Rumor has it the movie was green-lit on this ''alone''. Unfortunately the funny title was [[ExecutiveMeddling executively meddled with]] before its theatrical release and came to theaters and initial home release under the boring and simple moniker "Zack and Miri," before eventually being given a home release with its proper title. It's thought that this was part of the reason for the film underperforming at the box office.

Added DiffLines:

* IntimateArtistry: Zack & Miri are GenreSavvy enough to realize that making the porno will likely effect their friendship, [[DefiedTrope so they both promise each other that they will not let the movie change their emotions]]. To the surprise of none of the characters, [[PlayedStraight them filming together does cause both of them to realize their feelings for one another]].

''Zack and Miri Make a Porno'' is a 2008 film written and directed by Creator/KevinSmith, and starring Creator/SethRogen, Creator/ElizabethBanks, Jeff Anderson, Traci Lords, Jason Mewes and Craig Robinson. Like ''Film/JerseyGirl'', this is not part of Franchise/TheViewAskewniverse. It's also, as of this writing, Kevin Smith's last studio-financed movie.

* WomenAreWiser: Subverted. Neither Zack nor Miri is intelligent, talented, skillful, or able to manage his or her money whatsoever, but Miri seems to display fewer screw-ups than Zack...[[spoiler:that is, until the last act of the film when Miri, in a truly, infuriatingly perplexing and bizarre move by her character, purposely rejects Zack and acts like she's going to go through with her sex scene with Lester even after Zack spills his guts to her, tells her he loves her, and heavily implies that he didn't even sleep with Stacey. She still acts indignant and allows him to walk out on her and the film's production, ruining everything until Delaney convinces Zack to try talking to Miri again some time later.]]
