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.

| Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back: 7/10
For the record, I have not seen Kevin Smith's previous works, Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, or Dogma, which, I'm almost positive, affected how I saw the movie, since Smith puts in so many in-jokes and references to his previous movies, I didn't get them, except for the blatantly obvious ones.

Jay (Jason Mewes) and Silent Bob (Kevin Smith) hang out in front of a convience store selling weed. When the get a restraining order, they find out that the comic starring their likenesses Bluntman and Chronic is being turned into a Miramax movie. However, they aren't being paid for it, so what to do? Travel cross-country to Hollywood from New Jersey to stop the movie from getting made, what else?

Crude, inappropriate, and extremely funny. If there's ever a movie that you should watch with your drinking friends and not with a date or family, this is the one! It has jokes about genetalia, bodily functions, innuendoes, and more, and I haven't laughed this hard at a movie for a long time. Call me immature, but I like this type of stuff, ones that actually have substance behind the crude jokes (not like Old School).

Mewes was f-ing hilarious, when he f-ing say the f-ing f-word every f-ing word. It has over 230 f-words along in this movie, with the total number of curses probably around 300. I have never heard so many, but I laughed. I'm not ashamed to admit it: Mewes cracked me up, with his stylish arrogance and foul mouth. Smith, who was laconic for almost the entire film, expressed everything with his eyes, which were funny. There were more cameos than a movie of The Simpsons, with Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, George Carlin, Jamie Kennedy, Chris Rock, Tracy Morgan, Joey Lauren Adams, and many, many more.

There were many pot-shots of American movies. For instance, when Jay and Silent Bob meet a drug dealer played by Tracy Morgan, he says that Miramax accounts for about 75% of his income. Also, everyone on-screen looks at the camera when they mention, `No one would pay to see a Jay and Silent Bob movie,' and when Ben Affleck says that one reason you do a picture is because you owe a friend a favor. As the Bluntman and Chronic movies premieres, someone says, `Well, it was better than Mallrats.'

Are you easily offended? Does the mention of various body parts upset you? If you answered yes to either question, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back is not your movie. If you answered no, sit back and enjoy the ride!

My rating: 7/10

Rated R for nonstop crude and sexual humor, pervasive strong language, and drug content.

Trivia

Salma Hayek was originally going to reprise her role as Serendipity the muse from Dogma (1999), working on the Miramax lot. However, due to scheduling conflicts, she had to drop out. There is a painting of her at the start of the Scream 3 (2000) spoof instead.

Alternate Versions

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.
