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.
In an effort to drive up the box-office gross for his film, Kevin Smith gave away autographed mini-posters to all fans that sent in ticket stubs, indicating they went to see it on August 24, or 25, 2001.
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 the animal rescue, the van that Jay and Silent Bob traveled in blows up. You can clearly see the van door get blown off and then hit an invisible wall and bounce back rather than hit the police car that is parked next to it.
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.
