Rating : 5 out of 5 Stars
for Kevin Smith Fans, 3 out of 5 stars for non-Smith fans.
I'll keep this review short. If you haven't watched Kevin Smith's movies before, Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back would seem like a
juvenile, pot-themed movie. For fans like myself, this movie was made for us, and it also happens to be juvenile and pot-themed. J&SB is littered with references to all of
Kevin's previous movies. It is, after all the fifth movie in the series (see the Kevin Smith Catalog).
J&SB has a thin premise of the title
characters going to Hollywood to wreak vengeance on the studio that's making a movie of their comic book likenesses. This is perfect in the wake of comic book adaptations like The X-Men.
It really takes a good knowledge of all of Kevin's movies to get all the jokes in J&SB. For those who haven't seen any of his movies
, check the list on the right and buy or rent them. If you like smart dialogue and jokes from subtle to absurd, start watching! Kevin
has a huge cult following and it's no accident! What are you still reading this for, go see the movie!
