Wal-Mart Makes Kevin Smith Remove "Porno" From Movie

| Filed under: Film Flickers

We guess that even just the word "porno" is enough to offend some folks, because Wal-Mart told Kevin Smith that if he wants to sell the DVD release of Zack and Miri Make a Porno at their stores, the word "porno" must be removed from the cover.

So, there's no "porno" at Wal-Mart, but there are guns…and lots of Slutty Cyrus merchandise.

Kevin Smith, who's faced a string of obstacles with his naughty-named flick, said, "I'm just so shocked that the word 'porno' meant that much to people in terms of, like, they found it insanely offensive and don't want to see it on display."

Smith complied, however, not without some concern for folks who might be misled by the new innocuous title.

Kevin admits that the film does "include nudity, vulgar content, and colourful language," but has insisted that almost all of it is for the laughs, not the sexy times.

    O GOD NOT PORNO what will we ever dooo ?!?!



  4. 4

    Wal-Mart probably stocked the "Saw" movie with severed body parts on the cover which is much more disgusting than the word porno.



  5. 5

    Haha, Slutty Cyrus, I love it..

    I call her Hannah Slutanna :D

    And that movie is hilarious! But a porno? No.. Just no.



  6. 6

    Wal-mart sells guns, but won't sell a movie with the word "porno" in it. Just more proof that socially conservative people are mentally ill.



  8. 8

    so what the hell is the new title gonna say?



  9. 9

    Yet more evidence that Wal-Mart caters to the poor Christian white-folk.

    "Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. has made a business decision to remove firearms from approximately 1000 locations within the U.S. beginning March 6, 2006. This decision is based on diminished customer relevancy and demand within multiple markets."
    They def don't sell guns in CA. Obviously Pervez hasn't set foot in a WalMart in ages.



  20. 20

    "TRAILER PARK OF TERROR"…….. IS SOLD AT WALMART, AND HAS A MIDGET WRESTLER WITH A 12 INCH DICK SHOWN TWICE IN THE MOVIE…..AT THE PART OF THE MOVIE WHERE THE ZOMBIE PULLS THE WOMAN HE'S FUCKING OUT THE WINDOW…..CHECK IT OUT

  25. 25

    I don't get how removing the word porno from the title is effective? It seems more like deceiving the customer who can still buy the video there.
    I won't see the movie because of the content.



  26. 26

    Now IF they would just eliminate the words MADE IN CHINA from everything they sell .. they would have done something? (positive)



  27. 27

    Nice Porno is bad but the song "cause I got high" is totally ok playing on a mardi gras display?!?!

    Who shops at walmart anyway?
    The checkout lines are waay too long, so why bother.



  29. 29

    Hey dumbass…as far as I know-Wally World doesn't sell guns anymore-at least in our Connecticut (ugh crappy liberal state!) they don't.



  30. 30

    OO HELL NOO!!!

    walmart doesnt want them, target wilL!!! KEVIN BETTER NOT DO IT!!!! on top of that, itll just confuse people who dont know about the movie…



  31. 31

    First you put guns and Miley merch on the same level and then you do not want a store to be able to sell what it want…..You are a douche Perez…..If Gay World or wherever you shop didn't want Sarah Palin books in its stores you would be all for it.



  32. 32

    It's time all those artists who has experienced Walmart censoring them instead joined together and started a massive boycot against the chain and had all their movies and music pulled from the stores. The artists should boycot Walmart because of their censorship. THAT would suck.



  33. 33

    Is there any way that we can please ban people who don't type proper English? I mean, it's simply maddening. And as for you, M*I*A*R, and the last star… this guy, Ziti, makes a reference to the necessity of guns because he needs to protect his property from "blue-gummed monkeys," and you compliment his humor? What the hell is wrong with you people? You belong in the gun section of a WalMart.

    I have not seen the movie myself but I do know that it is a good comedy film. But, that's not the reaosn for it being pulled out, it is because of the title. To us, yeah that word is just fine. But, don't forget Walmart is full of children and parents who don't want their children at a a young age to be asking and wondering what that means. As for the Miley merchandise remark you made, not really funny at all. Oh my a Hannah guitar = slutty merchandise… ooookkk there. Seriously, you try so hard and fail at making random things Miley's fault. It's somewhat funny that you continue to say such immature things towards her.



  39. 39

    Lol this is absolutely ridicolous!!! Hate this bitches… who buys at Walmart anyways??? They are all cheap hillbillies!!!!!



  40. 40

    I am not sure why Miley Cyrus is mentioned in this post. She is, after all only 16 and her only crime seems to be (according to Perez) going out with an older guy and riding without a helmet! (Are you jealous you have never riden a guy without a helmet on?) Hahaha according to Wikipedia Mario is 30, am I the only person who finds it sad that a 30 year old gets so much pleasure out of talking badly about a 16 year old. Surely there must be some law against that!!!

    GET OFF MILEY!!!!!!

    One time I went to Wal-Mart and I asked a sales lady where the wine section was. She looked at me like I had a disease and she said "We do NOT sell Alcohol, we are a FAMILY store".
    I was a bit put off by her attitude, I said "well my FAMILY drinks WINE bitch!!!"

    why do some people see sex as something bad?
    war is not really a good thing, but you hear about it all the time, and see videos and images, and get encouraged to go and kill and get killed.
    …but nah, thats good, but sex? thats so baaaad.



  47. 47

    Re: SisterGoldenhairSurprise – Ha ha, nice! Because no one with a family drinks wine, obviously. What were you thinking? =)



  48. 48

    They have the same unnecessarily censored cover at Target. I complained and told them it was offensive to be treated like an idiot who would not be able to control himself if he saw the word porno in public.

    They thanked me and allowed me to go.



  49. 49

    Haha talk about hitting the nail on the head. Tyhe filth of American culture=guns and Cyrus i.e. pop trash.

    Re: Bucky – I 100% agree with you!!

    That movie was effing hysterical! I love Kevin Smith he shouldn't have to work so hard. I almost peed my pants laughing throughout the entire movie! Man, times are tough! Eff Walmart! Yet another reason I will never step foot in that store.



  52. 52

    Re: LG is simply ABSTRACT!

    Actually, that's not the way freedom of speech works at all. I also think it's pretty ridiculous, but at least get your terms right.

    And as an aside, a lot of Wal-Marts are not carrying firearms anymore. Several of them are phasing them out.



  53. 53

    lol…this is funny…what is it going to say…Zack and Miri make a ________ and then a bumper sticker? Are they going to change it to simply Zack and Miri. I think this is actually ridiculous…….

    wow another jew movie how original



  58. 58

    i guess the people that spew out this garbage dont have any kids.



  59. 59

    i think its hilarious the type of overdramatic shit people pull such as "oh my god, my life is ruined because two homosexuals are getting ruined" or "omg porn is a disgrace but my son needs his violence games"
    fucking hate this shit. It's so retarded the shit people pull



  60. 60

    that movie sucked. i want my 7 dollars back.



  61. 61

    Don't want it!!!!! Don't buy it!!!!!!….Wal-Mart or Kmart as known in Aussie Land…when will you people understand the power of the consumer …I bet that it will sell more copies than that dump Australia Movie that so called NICOLE KIDMAN did….fck please that's not a movie…that's a horror film…the yanks will still think we got kangaroo's jumpin down the main street



  62. 62

    And I hope the controversy drives up the sales. Nothing makes me happier than when goofballs who make a big deal out of nothing, end up making something more popular in the process. It's almost poetic.

    this is dumb, but whats more dumb is how SPAreZ always seems o find a way to bring Miley Cyrus into shit, can we SAY jealous!



  67. 67

    OMFG. PEREZ.
    We get that you don't like Miley. This movie has nothing to do with her, so why must you mention her? Wal-Mart sells her shit because it's not fucking crude or offensive. Are you ever going to shut the fuck up about her? Get over it and move on. You're like a fucking broken record, and it's not even necessary.
    Fucking aye, man. You're ridiculous.



  68. 68

    Oh, she is so cute, it is not strange that many wealthy men on ……richcupid net……….. are attracted by her and talked about her.

    Haha I love how all the little Miley fans come in and say how she's "not a slut" and that people are just "jealous of her".
    Yes, because everyone wishes they were that whore-ish.
    Go back to watching the Disney Channel, kids.



  72. 72

    Fuck wal-mart & flog it online Kevin Smith … that way us Aussies can get it too without having to wait for seconds.



  73. 73

    why walmart is so hung up with words? they should stop this nonsense.



  74. 74

    ugh. so disappointed. was hoping k.s would've said 'fuck a bunch of off'

    Walmart sells guns?? That's so weird!! I'm from the UK where nowhere sells guns.
