Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001) Poster

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.

Not even good on drugs.
The movie has its moments, but it's just a hodge podge of sometimes clever (sometimes not) walk-on cameos, a road trip (which is a poor screen writing trick to fill a weak plot with 30-40 minutes of loose gags), silly subplots and weak "ha-ha" gags breaking the fourth wall.

Half the movie is an insult to people who can best be described as The Comic Book Guy from The Simpsons (myself included). Half of the "Joke" is ripping on his own fanbase, and any average person who critiques him negatively over the net. This cheazy ploy went out with low-brow comics ripping on Siskel and Ebert (real critics), but now it's like the Slapshot scene where they go into the audience and beat-up their fans.

Except Slap Shot was funny.

Maybe I'm old (I'm Kevin Smith's Age). But F just isn't funny anymore Be clever. Why was Scooby Doo in the movie? It was a waste of 10 minutes that did nothing to the plot. Couldn't he tie that in somehow humously at the end like, those kids show up to expose the jewel theifs, who end up being 3 cranky old men who woulda gotten away with it. And the love interest... we won't even get into that believability.

Anyhow. Kevin, if you ever wanna come over and beat me up, drop me a note and I'll give ya my address.

Goofs

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.


Crazy Credits

Near the end of the credits, after the "no animals were harmed" statement: No gay people were harmed during the making of this film (however, some were used as test dummies in the creative process). Anybody who uses the insults contained in this film on any gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or heterosexual person --real, perceived or imaginary-- is a total dumbass!


Alternate Versions

In an earlier test screening of "Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back" the discussion between Marshall Willenholly and the Boulder Police about the search for Jay, Silent Bob and the missing orangutang was much longer. It also included an homage/referrence to the famous scene in The Fugitive where Tommy Lee Jones briefs the marshalls on "the hard-target search."
