Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back

Saw this last night. I am a fan of Kevin Smith's work, so I knew all the "inside" jokes. It seems as if Smith crammed a few too many cameos in the movie(many from 'American Pie'). As the plot unfolds, the jokes get better. Most of the jokes concern sex, and Jay has all of the best lines. Ben Affleck and Matt Damon appear in one scene together, putting each others films down..pretty funny. This movie was funny, but not Smith's best work. I suppose JASBSB served its purpose, though, which is one hilarious string of jokes to close out the Jay and Silent Bob movies and to retire the characters. If you are not into vulgar jokes about oral sex and smoking pot, this one probably isn't for you, snoogens.

I don't think anything can beat Dogma.

Dogma was terrible compared to Clerks. Mallrats was good too, Dogma was just bottom of the barrel.

You are telling me a ridiculous movie such as Mallrats which even Kevin Smith himself apologized for making after it was released is better than Dogma?

Kevin Smith is an ok director, but his stories and plots are nothing original and have actually been done a billion times over. You can easily tell what he is trying to say when you watch his movie, especially in Chasing Amy and Dogma. I get the feeling he is going to be stuck in star wars references and gay jokes for the rest of his career.

I also am a Mallrats fan, I like everything K.S. has done, but Dogma is my least fav. I love the quick, wit and smartass jokes. "That kid is BACK on the escelator" Brody from Mallrats

Smith has quoted that basicly the whole reason for STRIKE BACK is to put a rest to that type of thing for him. He felt he had grown past Jay and Silent Bob.

We'll see...

I like some of Kevin Smith's work- I absolutely loved Clerks and believe that it is one of the funniest movies ever and Jay and Silent Bob are great characters- 'yo, do beserker, Bob!!!' and I really liked Chasing Amy, but I didnt dig Mallrats at all and Dogma I found a little hard to follow, I guess that when I saw it I was a little sick of both the prodigal sons- Ben and Matt...........so anyway I will look forward to seeing any new Kevin Smith film- there is usually some good laughs to be had

I just saw it and I thought it was really enjoyable.

I loved the moive, it was just balls to the wall, everything in a blender fun and a nice sloppy kiss to Kevein Smith fans.

A warning though, if you don't like Keven Smith films, you will more than likely hate this movie.

I saw it this past weekend and...

It definitely ain't highbrow humor , and some of it is downright gross, but...

It's funny as hell!

just saw it, great ending to the saga IMHO. I thought it was more in a slapstikish mold like Mallrats, which is fine by me. If you like gross, gay,marijuana jokes, you'll like this movie. I love the way all characters were tied together. The K.S. movies inside joke thing was well thought out. FUNNY STUFF!!!!
