Kevin Smith's comedy, Zack and Miri Make a Porno , may have been granted an R-rating by the Motion Picture Association of America's rating board, but the marketing department of the Weinstein Co., which is distributing the film, says that 15 newspapers and several TV and cable outlets are refused to carry commercials for the film. Josh Rawitch, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Dodgers, told the Associated Press that commercials for the film were removed from Fox Sports channel during Dodgers games after viewers complained. The city of Philadelphia refused to permit posters for the movie on its bus stops, despite the fact that they now use stick figures to represent the actors. (The city's deputy mayor told AP that the ads were unacceptable because of the word "porno.") The studio has now developed a poster that reads, "Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks made a movie so outrageous that we can't even tell you the title."
