Using Porn And Sex to Help You Get Out of Debt

At first I had ignored the new film Zack & Miri Make a Porno but once I found it the premise of the movie was that they had run out of money and were struggling to get out of debt, I had to go see it.

Here is the review that really made me curious to see it.

Smith returns to the kind of characters he introduced in his 1994 debut Clerks – sarcastic but chronically underemployed service employees. Zack (Rogen) and Miri (Elizabeth Banks) have been friends since first grade, share rent on a shabby Pittsburgh house and mismanage their money. The rent is three months in arrears, and the water and electricity are about to be shut off, all on the night of their 10-year high-school reunion.

Humiliation is the order of the occasion: Nobody interesting recognizes Zack. Miri, who’s surname is Linky, is given a badge with her high-school nickname, “Stinky” Linky, and she makes a fool of herself by coming on to the class hunk, Bobby (Brandon Routh, of Superman Returns fame), who, she discovers, is living with his arch porn-star boyfriend, Brandon (Justin Long). Then Brandon tells Zack and Miri that they are YouTube celebrities, thanks to a teenager’s videophone images of their backsides, taken at the coffee shop where they work, which have been posted online.

What seems like the nadir of their shame turns into an opportunity. Zack decides they should exploit their notoriety by making a porno to get out of debt. After all, he says, porn is as much a part of the mainstream as Pepsi or Coke. Eschewing the default celebrity-porn route (handheld video camera, hotel room), Zack discovers his inner auteur.

Using Porn And Sex to Help You Get Out of Debt

So I’m just back from the movie. If you like silly and stupid sophomoric humor, you’ll love this movie. I don’t want to ruin it for you but it’s not real poo. If you see the movie you’ll know what I’m talking about.

And I fell for the movie rip off again. A medium soda was $3.50 but the large was $3.75 so I went for the large. When will I learn that I only have a 75% movie bladder. Sure enough, 2/3 of the way through I had to make a quick run to the restroom which would normally be not worth mentioning but I did walk into the restroom, all the way down to the end and while I was curious that there were no urinals, it did not hit me, till mid event, that I was in the women’s room. Doh! That’s a first, even for me.

Seriously, I think I’ve heard hundreds of stories from people of what they have done and will do for money and believe it or not, this movie premise, making a porn for money, is not all that strange. Generally the ‘wild things I’ve done to get out of debt’ stories fall into two categories, stealing and sex related.

But probably my all time favorite story was a woman who lived in a single wide mobile home with her husband. She convinced her husband that his cards had lower credit rates and that it made more sense to do a balance transfer of all the debt on her cards to his. The day after the transfer occured she split with her secret boyfriend and left him with the kids in the trailer. A combination of the stealing and sex theme. Sad, but true.
