maybe too much of a good thing,
This review is from: Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back [DVD]  (DVD)
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.
