'Zack and Miri' can't get ahead with MPAA

Zachmiripornposter_copy The MPAA giveth, and the MPAA taketh away. Recently, director Kevin Smith successfully appealed the NC-17 rating for his new comedy, Zack and Miri Make a Porno. But a short month after Smith's victory, the ratings board has put the kibosh on the movie's first poster. The one-sheet will now be used only in Canada. While you can see why the MPAA got its puritanical knickers in a twist, you have to laugh at the "raciness" of an image in which two people are not only fully clothed but practically dressed for a Minnesota toboggan ride.
