‘Zack and Miri’ Don’t Make A Porno

zack-and-miri

I had no idea that Target is so conservative. While shopping for last minute gifts, I spotted the DVD for Kevin Smith‘s Zack and Miri Make a Porno with the words “make a porno” edited out (real cover here). Apparently, “porno” is now too dirty a word to be seen in public. I’d understand the censorship more if the movie had been called Zack and Miri Make a Fuckin’ Porno or something along those lines, but come on — this is stupid.

Some clueless shoppers will probably purchase this and not even realize the real title. Good for Tipper Gore, bad for art. And it’s strange that Target omits the full title but keeps the double entendre of a tagline, “This is the last job they can afford to blow.” Do they realize that it doesn’t make sense out of the context of a porno?
