Seth Rogen and Kevin Smith Fighting NC-17 Rating

The pairing of Seth Rogen and Kevin Smith may seem like a match manufactured in comedy heaven, but the duo are battling a possible NC-17 rating on their forthcoming flick, Zack and Miri Make a Porno.
Rogen claims the film is sexually suggestive and littered with curse words, which has ruffled the ratings board's feathers. The story revolves around two longtime friends who decide to go beyond the ordinary limits of their friendship by making a porno together. Rogen plays Zack, with Elizabeth Banks starring as Miri. Smith directed.
If Smith was able to pull off an "R" rating for Clerks II, which had allusions to bestiality in it, then perhaps there is hope for Zack and Miri.
