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.
David Duchovny originally called Kevin Smith, and told him that he wanted the role of "Cocknocker". Smith gave him the role, but unfortunately when it was time to start shooting, Duchovny was already filming Evolution (2001), and could not make it. Mark Hamill was then brought in as his replacement.
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. ...
After Jay and Silent Bob escape into the sewer pipe in Utah and make it to the end of the line at the dam, two things occur once they climb to the top: 1. There is no water on the other side (mountains can actually be seen), and 2. The background on the waterfall side of the dam is of the mountain face of Pyramid Lake, just north of Castaic, California, named for the way the cut out face looks like a pyramid. This would mean that the pipeline ran all the way from Utah to California and that they made it in the same day on foot.
Like Smith's other films, this one closes with a snippet of Jay's dialogue.
The Enhanced CD Soundtrack has a video for "Jay's Rap 2001", in which is shown a number of shots that did not make it into the final film mixed in with those that did. These shots include: (1) Jay and Bob in a plane, (2) the two drinking beers (at the appropriate moment of "Jay's Rap") on the set of "Good Will Hunting 2: Hunting Season", (3) Jay and Bob outside a parking lot, (4) an alternate take of Jay miming sucking a breast in "Brodie's Comic Stash", (5) Jay smoking a cigarette during the "E.T."-influenced bike scene, (6) Bob stepping out of a room with a goofy grin on his face while Jay tokes up, and finally ends with (7) a hilarious blooper where Jay offers Suzanne the orangutan a hit off a joint.
