Storyline:
I have to seriously consider whether or not my daughter turning me on to Kevin Smith's movies was a good idea. I really enjoyed CLERKS, CHASING AMY and DOGMA as I have indicated in my reviews of the latter two. Mallrats was a bit of a disappointment but every movie maker has the right to make at least one bomb. I think that disappointment has been reached in my viewing of Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.

The basic story, ignoring a detailed account of the subplots, is when Jay and Silent Bob learn from their friend Brodie [he of MALLRATS fame] that Miramax Pictures is producing a movie based on their lives without either consulting or compensating them, Jay and Bob head out to Hollywood to lay a claim on the money they rightly believe they deserve. On the way, they have encounters with Holden McNeil [of CHASING AMY fame], a hitchhiking George Carlin, a group of beautiful jewel thieves, an incompetent wildlife marshal, and an orangutan named Suzanne.

The movie seems geared to a teen age audience and is appropriately juvenile, and as in the case of Mallrats, the acting is bad. Perhaps the writer and director, Kevin Smith, intended it so. And although I am the last person in the world to support the language Gestapo, there are just too many F-bombs dropped by Jason Mewes as well as others in the cast. The website at IMDB.COM informs us that the word "fuck" is used 248 times.

Smith has packed the movie with many stars including: Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Chris Rock, Jason Lee, Shannon Elizabeth, Eliza Dushku [of THE DOLL HOUSE fame], Will Ferrell, Judd Nelson, George Carlin,Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill [fans report that Kevin Smith is a Star Wars fanatic and here Silent Bob gets to carry on a lightsaber duel with Hamill], and Alanis Morrissette, just to mention a few; and of course the ever present Brian O'Halloran [introduced in Clerks as Dante Hicks]. Do I need to repeat how tired I am of seeing Affleck and Damon or do my reviews of CHASING AMY, DOGMA, and MALLRATS sufficiently make the point? But here, they may be more essential since Kevin is obviously a fan of GOOD WILL HUNTING, and includes many clever references to it.

OK, on the positive side. Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back is filled with those incredible slapstick routines for which Kevin is well-known. And some of them are outrageous. And in spite of Jay's use of profanity, the hilarious scenes between him and Silent Bob, wherein Jay often makes brutal but funny comments about life and love always are the highlights of any Jay and Bob film that Kevin makes.

In his own October, 2001 review, JehuDVD (JasonCUPRess@hotmail.com) writes: "Whether or not you enjoy `Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back' is going to depend a lot on whether or not you enjoy director Kevin Smith. I, for one, think the guy is a genius."

In my own estimation, it's not so much whether or not you enjoy Kevin Smith's movies that is the point but rather whether or not you are familiar with them. All the five Smith movies which I have seen [CLERKS, DOGMA, CHASING AMY, MALLRATS,and JAY AND SILENT BOB STRIKE BACK] employ characters and situations from each movie that preceded the current one. I imagine that is true of the Kevin Smith movies which I have not yet seen as well, as JehuDVD points out; they are parts of "a world created by the director himself, in the sense that all are interconnected by characters, plot points, and subtle references. The one constant, though, is the entity known as Jay and Silent Bob, a pair of pot dealers who have more or less spent their entire lives standing in front of the Quik-Stop convenience store. Jay (Jason Mewes) is the long-haired guy we all knew in high school, his endless stream of four-letter epithets almost endearing because the goofy guy just doesn't know any better. Silent Bob (played by director Kevin Smith), Jay's self-described `hetero life-mate' stands by without speaking a word and provides some sort of moral counterpoint for the duo."

Jehu also compares it to "satire at it's finest, reminiscent of such self-deprecating masterpieces as `Pee-Wee's Big Adventure' and `Blazing Saddles.'" In a way, I can agree with that assessment. His final comment says it all: "Smith loves his fans, and this film was created for the loyal." After a while, even the fart jokes make you laugh against your will!

KUDOS to Eliza Dushku who I first saw in the award winner TV series, THE DOLL HOUSE. She is as beautiful and athletically gifted as ever.
KUDOS to Will Ferrell. Who can forget his appearences on SNL,especially with Chris Katan as the two losers endlessly missing out on romance while WHAT IS LOVE ironically plays in the background?
KUDOS to George Carlin always as the master comic and philosopher of our time. Unhappily he has a rather small role here.
KUDOS to Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill, both of STAR WARS fame. Fisher looked surprisingly good for her age. BUt after all, she is the daughter of the very pretty Debbie Reynolds
KUDOS to Ali Larter who plays Chrissy; she is a pretty actress whom I best remember as the young female lead in FINAL DESTINATION.

I'll be interested in hearing from Kevin's fans who read this review.


Did You Know?
Trivia:
Kevin Smith's fan base is so loyal that during the theatrical run of Scary Movie 2 (2001), many people bought tickets for the film simply to see the trailer for "Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back". After the trailer ran, many movie-goers left the theater.
Jay is wearing a "Berserker" T-shirt with the image of Olaf, the Russian metalhead from Clerks (1994). "Berserker" was the song Olaf was singing.
Ben Affleck and Matt Damon mention that one of the reasons to do a film is because they owe the director a favor. It was writer/director Kevin Smith who brought the script of Good Will Hunting (1997) to Miramax.
The voice of Scooby-Doo scene is provided by Mark Hamill.
Baby Silent Bob is played by Harley Quinn Smith, daughter of director Kevin Smith.
Because Ben Affleck reprised his role as Holden from Chasing Amy (1997), Kevin Smith had originally wanted to cast different actors to play Affleck and Matt Damon in the Good Will Hunting (1997) spoof. Smith first considered casting Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau, then Shawn Wayans and Marlon Wayans, before finally deciding to cast Affleck and Damon as themselves.
Heather Graham was originally offered Shannon Elizabeth's role, but she turned it down because she couldn't figure out why her character would fall in love with Jay.
This is the fifth film in Kevin Smith's intricately interconnected View Askewniverse series (the first four being Clerks (1994), Mallrats (1995), Chasing Amy (1997) and Dogma (1999)). The movies are all linked by characters, themes and events and each contains numerous references to the others. The sixth part of the series would be Clerks II (2006).
This was the first film that both Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill (Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars Saga) had appeared in together since Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983). Apparently neither of them knew the other was in the film until a few weeks after shooting had been completed.
The word "fuck" is used 248 times.
The high amount of profanity caused some challenges for those hired to translate the film into other languages. In the DVD release, the word "merde" (which means "shit") is substituted for "fuck" in the French language soundtrack.
Shannon Elizabeth, (Justice) came up with the idea for her character to wear glasses because she said that "Justice is blind".
David Duchovny was offered a small role, but eventually had to turn it down due to his commitment to The X-Files (1993).
Salma Hayek was originally going to reprise her role as Serendipity the muse from Dogma (1999), working on the Miramax lot. However due to scheduling conflicts she had to drop out. There is a painting of her at the start of the Scream 3 (2000) spoof instead.
Originally, Kevin Smith wanted Quentin Tarantino to appear in the film as himself as the director of "Bluntman and Chronic Strike Back" in one of the earlier drafts of the script. Then-current Miramax chairman Harvey Weinstein was to appear as himself too.
Kevin Smith was originally highly reluctant to do a Jay and Silent Bob solo film, believing that the characters couldn't carry a film. Positive reaction to Jay and Silent Bob's cameo in Scream 3 (2000) changed his mind.
According to Kevin Smith, the film was intended as a controversy-free comedy in response to his previous film, the controversy-plagued Dogma (1999). He did not succeed, having raised the ire of gay rights activists over its gay jokes. Smith, in his DVD commentary, denies that his humor was intended as insulting.
The film originally received an NC-17 rating. Numerous scenes had to be cut down for an R, including footage of George Carlin and Jay and Silent Bob's arrival to Hollywood.
Mark Hamill plays Bluntman & Chronics villain, Cockknocker. Bluntman & Chronic is a reference to Batman & Robin, especially when Cockknocker calls Bluntman, Hemp Knight (a play on Dark Knight). Mark Hamill provided the voice of Batman's villain The Joker in the animated television series.
At an estimated $22 million, this is the most expensive of the View Askew films with Clerks (1994) obviously being the least expensive.
The phrase "Fuck Jay and Silent Bob. Fuck them up their stupid asses" became so popular that it was used in just about every talkback on Ain't It Cool News (Such as "Fuck 'Osama bin Laden'. Fuck him up his stupid ass.")
Tracy Morgan's drug dealer character was originally unnamed. Morgan came up with the character's name - Pumpkin Escobar - the day they filmed the scene. Morgan also came up with the idea of Escobar's sidekick Scott, reasoning that if his character was the West Coast Jay, he should have a West Coast Silent Bob.
Jennifer Schwalbach Smith (Missy), one of the lesbian jewel thieves, is Kevin Smith's real-life wife, making her film debut. Several scenes of her making out with Ali Larter (Chrissy) were cut for time, not due to their content.
Cast members Seann William Scott, Jason Biggs and Shannon Elizabeth were filming this movie around the same time as American Pie 2 (2001).
The movie features two actors who would later potray Batman: Diedrich Bader (Batman: the Brave and the Bold) and Ben Affleck (Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice)
Numerous references to Jaws
References to Chasing Amy and and Dogma.
Silent Bob speaks a total of 102 words.
Alanis Morissette's cameo marks one of the few times in movie history where an actress/actor appears for the first time in the movie, after being listed in the end credits.

Goofs:
Preppy Guy's mouth in the Good Will Hunting spoof doesn't match the words we hear.
In the beginning when Jay and Silent Bob are in the 1970's, Jay's mom goes into the Record store (RST Video to be) and a Free Willy video is visible just inside the door, a movie that wasn't released until 1993.
The reflection of a 1990s car can be seen on the record store window, during the prologue scene that's supposed to be set in the 1970s.
When baby Jay chants "fuck" before the dissolve to present-day, his mouth isn't moving.
When the kids tell Dante and Randal that they heard about their wedding, a boom mic can be seen in the reflection of the Nails Cigarette kiosk behind them, moving back and forth.
In her explanation to Jay and Silent Bob about the diamond heist, Justice refers to "Sissy, Missy, and Christy," rather than "Chrissy" - thus ruining the much-celebrated "rhyme scheme".
When Brodie shows Jay and Silent Bob the 'Bluntman & Chronic' article in Wizard magazine, there is a picture of Holden and Banky (obviously lifted from the DVD cover of Chasing Amy) but when Jay and Bob take the magazine to Holden's apartment the picture on the inside has changed to a still image from Chasing Amy.
When Jay and Silent Bob are running from the security guards from the "Good Will Hunting 2: Hunting Season" set, Jay has his yellow jacket tied around his waist. But in the next shoot, where they are in the "Scream" set with Shannen Doherty, Jay has his yellow jacket on.
A crew member is reflected off the back of Holden's laptop.
When Holden is showing Jay and Silent Bob the Movie Poop Shoot forums, on his computer you can see the reflection of silhouetted crew members walking past repeatedly.
When Jay and Silent Bob release the animals from the test clinic, at least two of the CG mice run through Bob's foot.
The news reporter says that he doesn't know what Jay and Silent Bob look like, but a video of them was previously shown on the news so he does actually know what they look like.

Quotes:
Silent Bob's Mother: Bobby Boy, stay here while mommy picks up the free cheese, kay? Here, this will keep the sun out of your eyes.
[puts a baseball cap on his head backwards]
Silent Bob's Mother: You be good, now.
[walks in store, then Jay and his Mom arrive]
Jay's Mother: Alright, don't you fuckin' move you little shit machine. Your Momma's going to try to score.
Passerby: What the hell? 'Scuse me. Who's watching these babies?
Jay's Mother: Uh... the fat one's watchin the little one?
Passerby: Oh yeah, nice parenting. Leave 'em out here like that and see what happens.
Jay: All you motherfuckers are gonna pay. You are the ones who are the ball-lickers. We're gonna fuck your mothers while you watch and cry like little, whiny bitches. Once we get to Hollywood and find those Miramax fucks who is makin' the movie... we're gonna make them eat our shit, then shit out our shit, and then eat their shit that's made up of our shit that we made 'em eat. Then you're all you motherfucks are next. Love- Jay and Silent Bob.
Jay: I am the master of the C.L.I.T. Remember this fucking face. Whenever you see C.L.I.T., you'll see this fucking face. I make that shit work. It does whatever the fuck I tell it to. No one rules the C.L.I.T like me. Not this little fuck
[referring to Silent Bob]
Jay: , none of you little fucks out there. I AM THE C.L.I.T. COMMANDER! Remember that, commander of all C.L.I.T.s! When it comes down to business, this is what I do. I pinch it like this. OOH you little fuck. Then I rub my nose with it.
Holden: If the buzz is any indicator, that movie's gonna make some huge bank.
Jay: What buzz?
Holden: The Internet buzz.
Jay: What the fuck is the Internet?
Holden: The Internet is a communication tool used the world over where people can come together to bitch about movies and share pornography with one another.
[Justice and Sissy are engaged in a fist-fight]
Sissy: Your shit is really getting tired, Justice.
Justice: Call me 'Boo-Boo-Kitty-Fuck', bitch.
Jay: [singing] Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, / Mother, mother fuck, / Mother, mother fuck, fuck / Mother fuck, mother fuck, / Noise noise noise, / 1, 2, 1, 2, 3, 4, / Noise, noise noise / Smokin' weed, smokin' wizz, / Doin' coke, drinkin' beers, / Drinkin' beers, beers, beers, / Rollin' fattys, smokin' blunts, / Who smokes the blunts? / We smoke the blunts. / Rollin' blunts and smokin'...
Teen #2: Uh, let me get a nickel bag.
Jay: [singing] / Fifteen bucks, little man, / Put that shit in my hand, / If that money doesn't show, / Then you owe me, owe me, owe, / My jungle love, yeah, / Owe-ee, owe-ee, owe, / I think I want to know ya, know ya, / Yeah, what?
Teen #1: What the hell are you singing?
Jay: You don't know "Jungle Love?" That shit is the mad notes. Written by God herself and sent down to the greatest band in the world: The mother-fucking Time.
Teen #2: You mean the guys in that Prince movie?
[Silent Bob points to the two teens]
Teen #1: Yeah, Purple Rain.
Teen #2: Man, that shit was so gay - fucking eighties style.
Jay: What's twistin' this bitches tit?
Justice: Maybe it's because girls don't like to be called bitches, Jay.
Jay: They don't? How 'bout "fine piece of ass"?
Justice: How about not.
Jay: Then what the fuck am I supposed to call you?
Justice: Something sweet, ya big goof. Something nice.
Jay: Boo boo kitty fuck?
Justice: That's... a start.
Whillenholly: The C.L.I.T. is an offshoot of the L.A.B.I.A.
Reg Hartner: Oh, you mean the Liberate Apes Before Imprisoning Apes movement?
Banky: You guys are gonna ruin my movie career.
Jay: Well, we want somethin' for our mental anguish.
Banky: Tell you what: let's settle this monetarily. I'll give you half of what I make.
Jay: [eagerly] Half?
Banky: Half's not enough? Fine, I'll give you two-thirds of what I make.
Jay: Fuck you, you already said half. You can't take it back.
Tricia Jones: [on "Bluntman and Chronic: The Movie"] Well! That was just another paean to male adolescence and its refusal to grow up.
Alyssa Jones: Yeah, sis. But it was better than "Mallrats". At least Holden had the good sense to leave his name off of it.
Tricia Jones: Why didn't Miramax option his other comic instead. You know, the one about you and him and your "relationship"?
Alyssa Jones: Oh, "Chasing Amy"? That would never work as a movie.
Jay: Do they say who's fuckin' playing us in the movie?
Holden: No, but it's Miramax. So I'm sure it'll be Ben Affleck and Matt Damon. They put those guys in a bunch of movies.
Jay: Who?
Holden: You know, those kids from Good Will Hunting?
Jay: You mean that fuckin' movie with Mork from Ork in it?
Holden: Yeah, I wasn't a big fan either... but Affleck was the bomb in "Phantoms".
Jay: Holy fuck, is that monkey waving at us? Oh, shit, It understood us! Maybe it's some kind of supermonkey. What if there's more supermonkeys up at that lab?
[shouts]
Jay: What if they're creating an army of them? Holy shit. It must be a conspiracy like in the X-Files... *Roswell* style! This little monkey could be the fuckin' damn dirty ape responsible for the fall of the human race. In this world gone mad, we won't spank the monkey- the monkey will spank us. And after the fall of man, these monkey fucks'll start wearing our clothes and rebuilding the world in their image. Oh and only those as super smart as me will be left alive to bitterly cry - *you maniacs*! Damn yous! Goddamn yous all to hell!
Hitchhiker: [explaining why he gives head for rides] Have you seen the price of bus tickets lately. There's no way I'm gonna cough up 200 bucks just to get to Chicago.
Jay: Fuck that, I don't wanna cough up some dude's sperm.
Hitchhiker: Don't be so suburban. It's the new millennium. Gay, straight... it's all the same now. There are no more lines.
Chaka: Do you know that I came up with the idea for Sesame Street? I came up with it before PBS. The white man stole it. That's right. I was gonna call it "N.W.P." - Niggaz With Puppets. Catchy, ain't it?
Clark: [during filming for Good Will Hunting 2] You're just no longer any good, Will Hunting. Now how do *you* like *them apples*?
Ben Affleck: [in huddle with Damon] I don't like the sound of them apples.
Jay: he doesn't talk much but he can tell the Amy stories.
