There are some films that you know you just shouldn't like and yet you love anyway. People watching `Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back' will either come to it fresh, or know about the `Askewniverse.' This film is definitely for the latter - those who have watched writer/director/star's previous work, i.e. Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy and Dogma - all of which are set in the same timeline (or `Askewniverse' to use the technical term). In other words, you'll get the most out of Jay and Silent Bob's movie if you've seen what's gone before (in the correct order).

If you're the former, you may like it, but it'll be a bit of a fluke it you do - it'll mean that you're probably into immature, smutty gags and smoke pot - which is mainly what's contained within the movie.

You really have to put your brain on hold, or at least move it down into your boots because the humour here is as low-brow as you're going to get. It's mainly a case of `know what you're getting' with this film. If you're prepared for one of the daftest, smuttiest, stupidest road trip movies ever made, which follows the exploits of two pot-heads who want to stop a movie about their life being made in Hollywood, then you'll probably enjoy this. If you're looking for something a little more intellectual then steer well clear.

Bonus points to the film-makers for getting what must be one of the longest lists of celebrity cameos ever assembled for a movie - every one sends themselves up beautifully.

I enjoyed it tremendously - in all it's low brow glory.

There can’t be many Kevin Smith fans that don’t adore the truly witty and brill “Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back”. An upgrade from DVD to BLU RAY is called for.

But be aware that the ‘US Disney’ BLU RAY is REGION-A LOCKED - so it WILL NOT PLAY on most UK Blu Ray players unless they're chipped to play 'all' regions (which the vast majority aren't). Don’t confuse BLU RAY players that have multi-region capability on the 'DVD' front – that won’t help.

Buy the standard UK issue instead - it's cheap - a looker on BLU RAY and a fun ride like The Coen Brothers firing on all sixes…

Before I start I suppose that first I should admit I am a Kevin Smith fanboy and don't even think Jersey Girl was that bad. Jay and Silent Bob, as any Smith fan will know, are two of the most popular characters in Smith's movies although they had previously always been on the sidelines. Finally, in 2001, they got their own movie which follows all of Smith's traits from his skill at writing hilarious dialogue right through to his self-confessed technical inabilities. He also manages to get some great cameos in this including Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Shannon Elizabeth, Jason Biggs and many more and we also get to see some familiar faces. The only thing that spoils this movie slightly for me is the poor casting of Will Ferrell but apart from that, if you enjoyed any of Smith's other movies, then chances are you'll like this. Clerks is still his best though.

I love Jay and Silent Bob,Kevin Smith is an amazing director/writer and since arriving on the scene with Clerks the adventures on the king of stoners Jay and Bob have got better and better. This film is just laugh out loud gags from start to finish with so many massive stars putting in cameos including Chris Rock who is brilliant in his small role in the film It also features Will Ferrell as a wildlife marshall with half a brain.
A must have for Kevin Smith fans and comedy fans alike but not for those who dont find fart jokes and toliet humour funny as they will hate this film be warned.

I love this movie. If you're a fan of Kevin Smith, you'll like this one. To be fair, many of the jokes won't make any sense if you're not familiar with the rest of the Smith oevre! The blue-ray issue has brilliant, clear images and sound. It's a shame there aren't any more features. I haven't had a chance to check out the commentary track yet, but it's on my to-watch list.
One of my favourite highlights is the scene with Carrie Fisher. 'It's easy to say you live by the book, but can you? Can you live by the book?' 'Well, you picked us up. I gotta, don't I?' Classic Smith humour.

TOP 500 REVIEWERon 23 May 2011
Jay and Silent Bob - as somewhat apparent from the title (one hopes) - emerge from their background supporting roles from the previous four Kevin Smith movies and get transformed into the lead characters in this one. As mentioned in some of the other reviews, this can be a bit much at times and in my opinion at least, a lot of the balance from the previous movies is missing as a result.

The basic plot revolves around the two trying to stop a movie being made, with characters being based on the pair, for which they need to undertake a coast to coast trip to Hollywood.

If you are a died in the wool Kevin Smith fan, it is a logical place to go after Clerks [DVD], Mallrats [DVD], Chasing Amy [DVD] [1997] and Dogma [DVD] but I still found this one the weakest of the lot. If you have not seen any of the previous ones, some of the jokes will probably be lost on you and you are certainly more likely to buy into the franchise, if you start with one of the others.

This is not to say that the movie was not funny - it certainly had its good fill of inside jokes and even though a lot of the humour is somewhat juvenile, it is at least executed relatively well - but do not expect to be wowed in the same way as you would be with say Clerks [DVD]. So in essence, no new ground broken and while the appearances of most significant characters of the prior movies was nice, if you need to make a choice from the lot - in my opinion this one is towards the lower end of the pile that is Kevin Smith's work. Luckily Clerks 2 [DVD] that follows is again a partial return to form.

Perhaps the funniest Kevin Smith film upto now. Jay and Silent Bob return, this time as the leading characters of their own movie. Other characters make pleasant yet brief returns. This film is more whacky than any other Kevin Smiths pervious movies, but be warned its not for everyone. If your a foul-mouthed, pot smoking, comic loving, red-bloodied male .... then this film will be hard to dislike. If you like more sutble and tasteful comedy ... then maybe this isnt for you.

Out of all Kevin Smiths films that I have watched, this is the best yet.

in the four films that kevin smith wrote and directed prior to this,the characters of jay and silent bob stayed in the background of the central characters and stories but when they appeared they usually stole the show,hence a victory for the two likable stoners,but now,we get a film that takes jay and silent bob out of the shadows and a film is made in their name and the results are ,well ,mixed ,if im honest.

The film has a list of cameos that dont fail to impress for the most part,ben affleck,can be a little annoying in this one but his inclusion after mallrats and dogma is welcome,matt damon,will ferrell,chris rock and carrie fisher all appear and do good to moderate jobs.

The film follows the stoner two as they head to hollywood with the intention of stopping a movie being made that features characters of themselves,along the way ,mishap and chaos and misunderstanding follows and the film is sketchy enough in places as it feels like a sum of parts rather than an entire movie,crude humour beckons and there are funny moments but sometimes the humour is too deadpan and self loving and this is probably the worst of kevin smiths movies,not a shambles by any means but not a film that will change the very fabric that is entertainment.

Ok, if you havent seen Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy and Dogma, I recommend going back and buying those, although this and none of the above are sequels, they are all set in the same universe and Jay and Silent Bob (and a lot of the characters in this film all) appear in those previous movies.
So this was supposed to be Kevin Smiths final movie in the Viewaskewniverse franchise (this and the films mentioned above).
So what we get is the two guys that have been background character throughout the whole thing get there own movie where they meet a lot of the cast from the previous films.
You've got Dante, Randall, Snowball (Clerks)
Brody (Mallrats)
Holden, Banky, Alyssa, the gay black dude (Chasing Amy)
And a bunch of actors from the previous films in new and funny roles... oh and Will Ferrell is also a main character, so if you're a fan of his films, this is one of his lesser known gems.
The plot revolves around Jay and Silent Bob finding out Bluntman and Chronic (the comic character to which they hold likeness rights too) are getting there own movie and internet fans have been insulting the characters. So J&SB go to Hollywood to stop the movie getting made to stop all these internet fans saying bad stuff about them. Its just one big movie full off wild crazy shizz. I really suggest you own this movie. Click buy now. Snootch.
