Written and directed by Kevin Smith, this comedy film brings back the stoner duo, Jay (Jason Mewes) and Silent Bob (Kevin Smith), to the big screen after a long hiatus. This time, their adventure takes them across the country as they do their best to prevent the production of 'Bluntman and Chronic,’ a movie reboot based on their lives, from heading into production. Co-starring Melissa Benoist, Chris Hemsworth, and Matt Damon.~Clare Perez-Izaguirre Lopez
Definitely not the best movie ever made but it’s absolutely a fun one. Growing up watching Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma and Strike Back I’ve always been a fan of Kevin Smith’s indie comedy universe and this doesn’t disappoint. I was lucky to see this in the theater back in October and glad to have added it to my collection. If you’re a Kevin Smith fan this is a must buy!!!!
I'm a big fan of the Kevin Smith movies - not that everyone is a complete winner - but I enjoy the characters. Unfortunately Jay and Silent Bob are getting a little older (as obviously are Jason & Kevin), so it's a little harder to buy into one more clueless adventure, BUT if you'd like one more romp with some old friends, in a movie that has a little more heart than many of the preceding films, I'd recommend checking this one out. Almost all the supporting characters are here too, so it makes it fun to see them all, plus some new ones.
I saw this movie in theaters and boy was I worried. Who knew if Kevin Smith had lost his edge or if his humor had become too hokey in this day and age. I can happily report my worries didnt come true. Incredibly funny and fits wonderfully as a sequel to Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. Jason Mews has come a long way and I gotta admit his big emotional moment in the movie got me a bit weepy. If you're a Kevin Smith fan, I be shocked if you were disappointed by this movie.
If you are not sure what the difference is between a "reboot" and a "remake", don't fret, they will explain it...extensively! Now, I am in no way saying that I did not like the movie. It had its moments here and there, but I think that it missed the mark a little. It just seemed like they were trying a bit to hard to recapture the genius that was Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. Either way, I did enjoy the movie and it's definitely worth a watch.
If you loved Jay & Silent Bob Strikes Back, you'll like this film. If you like Jay & Silent Bob, watch this. Humor is pretty good but the best thing is the cameo appearances and explanations given in the film about them. Recommended.
So, if you are familiar with Kevin Smith's work, you already have a pretty good idea of whether or not you are going to like this film. If you are not already familiar, there is nothing I could say that would help you to figure that out, given his unique brand of comedy and how personal and subjective the love of that comedy actually ends up being.
