| A Religious Comedy
I am a huge Kevin Smith fan and after seeing this film I can say that it was everything I hoped it would be, and a little bit more. It's extremely well written and directed. The film has the same great comedy we're used to from Kevin Smith, but he shows that he has another dimension that I don't think many people thought was there.

Jay and Silent Bob have their biggest role so far. Jay has some of his laugh out loud funniest one liners yet. But what really makes this a great film is that it is genuinely thought provoking.

There are religious people out there who will criticize this film as being anti religion, anti Catholicism, when it is anything but (well, a little anti Cathlic maybe). The central theme to the film is that there is a God, but not the God that most people know (or think they know) or believe in. The characters in the film are trying to get the message across that people have changed the original God, man has made God into the image they want him/her to be, made their own religious rules, rules that God never intended. From a strictly biblical standpoint, Smith is right on, which is not something that can be said about many films dealing with religion. And isn't that the entire point to Christianity, that it's based on the bible.

Crazy Credits

The director would like to thank: God - whose idea it was to make both this film and me Scott - the most spiritual agnostic I know Jenny - who gives me strength, love, and major booty Mom and Dad - who raised me Catholic, more or less Affleck - a pimp with passion Gordon - our honorary Catholic Jew Harvey - our man on the Inside, who didn't let us dangle The Folks at Lions Gate - who saved us from oblivion Mewes - see? sober living paid off Yeoman - for raising that visual bar Howard - for that sweet Shore score Sloss - the long arm of the Law Phil - for making that cold-call Kim - for holding down the fort Gina and Tony - for the full-court press Bry and Walt - for no end of support and amusement Laura and Monica - for keeping us on time, on budget, and keeping Mosier happy (professionally and otherwise) The Cast - for genius work at shameful rates The Crew - for long hours and even more shameful rates Tom Elliot and Shore Fire Studios - because I forgot to thank them in the "Amy" credits and Harley Quinn - for giving me the opportunity to raise my own little Catholic
