The comic "Bluntman and Chronic" is based on real-life stoners Jay and Silent Bob, so when they get no profit from a big-screen adaptation, they set out to wreck the movie.
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.
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.
Silent Bob's Mother: You be good, now.
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. ...
When Jay and Silent Bob are beating up the clerk at a store at the end of the movie, they hit him and a sign falls down onto the counter. In the next shot, the sign is gone. In the third shot, the sign returns.
Like Smith's other films, this one closes with a snippet of Jay's dialogue.
