6/10: Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back
Wednesday, August 27, 2008

I had seen a few bits of them in Clerks, part of the "New Jersey Trilogy" along with Mallrats and Chasing Amy, an appearance in Scream 3, and a return in Dogma, but I had never seen one of the proper films from director Kevin Smith, and I'm glad the first film of his I did try starred his most popular characters in their own movie. Basically the star slackers, dope-smoking, jive-talking Jay (Jason Mewes) and Silent Bob (Smith himself, only uttering a few words somewhere in the middle) have discovered their book alter egos Bluntman and Chronic are having a movie made about them by Miramax, but they are getting bad hate mail (about the characters, and their real names), and they are now heading from Jersey to Hollywood to stop the movie being made. On the way, Jay meets the love of his life with Justice (American Pie's Shannon Elizabeth), who along with Missy...

7/10: Jay and Silent Bob Forever
Thursday, September 10, 2015

Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001): Dir: Kevin Smith / Cast: Jason Mewes, Kevin Smith, Shannon Elizabeth, Will Ferrell, Eliza Dushku: A celebration of characters made memorable by Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes. The dope dealing duo discover a movie in production based on their personas so they venture to Hollywood to stop it. Amusing setup simmers into road movie formula where they molest a nun, steal an ape, and encounter four female thieves. Director Kevin Smith delivers Hollywood in jokes with celebrities spoofing themselves yet this still manages to be only a routine road movie crude comedy. Mewes and Smith are on target until the road trip then everything depends on celebrity cameos and a dreary subplot regarding the four female thieves. In the end they stand up for the little guy as well as gain acclaim in Hollywood for which they cause quite a fiasco. Shannon Elizabeth among the thieves is weak. None of these females are particularly...

1/10: Jay and Silent Bob waste my $8
Saturday, September 1, 2001

This film will hold a special place in the hearts of all Kevin Smith fans. It is nothing more than his very own greatest hits reel. Now I kind of dig the man myself, liked a few of his films-hated a few more, but I entered the theatre as more of a impartial film fan rather than Kevin Smith nut. Keep that in mind as I say these words: Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back is one of the most horrible pieces of nonsense ever put to film. It was so bad I expected Pauly Shore to have a few lines. The titular characters are really not interesting enough to carry an entire movie, especially seeing that one is silent. After 90 minutes the voice of Jay was an inch away from giving me a seizure. Crude and stupid, in all of the bad ways, this film puts a black mark next to the name of a filmmaker who...

7/10: For Kevin Smith fans
Saturday, January 25, 2014

Jay and Silent Bob (Jason Mewes, Kevin Smith) are two drug dealers first seen in 'Clerks'. They find out that a comic book based on their lives are being made into a movie. After discovering the internet, they see that they are being ridiculed by trolls. Instead of wanting money, they set off to Hollywood to stop the movie. Then the duo hitch a ride with 4 hot girls (Shannon Elizabeth, Eliza Dushku, Ali Larter, Jennifer Schwalbach Smith). The story is a little random. There's a lot of funny inside jokes about Hollywood. It's cute but the childish jokes don't all work. It's cool to see all the Hollywood big names taking on their own previous work. This is definitely a movie for Kevin Smith fans only. At the heart of it is the friendship between Jay and Silent Bob. That part works quite well. However the production isn't as expertly made as Kevin Smith...

10/10: Everything that anyone's ever been awaiting
Wednesday, February 22, 2006

For all who have spent their lives waiting for wacky, biting satire, wait no more. "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" is here and as funny as can be. Portraying the title characters (Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith) trying to stop Hollywood from making an illegal movie based on their lives, the movie is basically a joke every minute. Probably the funniest aspect is the way that various people appear in the movie making fun of their roles in other movies (check out Matt Damon's and Ben Affleck's appearance).I should warn you that this is not a movie for prudes. The George Carlin scene will particularly rile such people, as will the whole part about the "clit". But Kevin Smith's fans are sure to love this movie. Also starring in hilarious roles are Will Ferrell, Shannon Elizabeth, Carrie Fisher, Chris Rock, and several others (I did what the movie commanded when a certain "Star Wars" cast...
