Frequently Bought Together
A 2-disc follow up to the highly successful, An Evening With Kevin Smith, Evening Harder includes wildly funny, irreverent concerts in London and Toronto with one of Hollywood's most gifted and hilarious filmmakers. This is yet another chance to get up close and personal with the man that brought you Dogma, Clerks and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back!
While watching An Evening with Kevin Smith 2 (let's skip over that stupid sub-title, shall we?), you may ask yourself, "Why should I give a **** about anything Kevin Smith has to say?"--and then you'll be laughing in agreement with a lot of what he says. For better or worse, the potty-mouthed creator of Clerks and Dogma is an expert at combining his own "View Askew" perspective with stand-up comedy and ribald Q&A with (mostly) appreciative audiences. The novelty here is that Smith (now looking richer and more custom-tailored than he did on the cover of An Evening with Kevin Smith) is equally at home with fans in Toronto and London, where his cross-cultural observations inform much of their humorous interaction. Whether he's discussing the X-Men movies as homosexual allegory, recalling how his wife caught him masturbating to pictures of her that he shot for Playboy, or making prescient observations about Mel Gibson's career me! ltdown (just a few of the many topics covered here), Smith remains admirably frank about his fan-base, his limited skills as a film-maker, and his counter-cultural status as a chubby fan-boy who made good in Hollywood. Even when he tests your tolerance with opinions best kept to himself, Smith is a focused observer of his own milieu, willing to expose his insecurities while refusing to suffer fools in his audience (and there are more than a few).
As with his previous stand-up DVD, Smith welcomes frequent (and now drug-free) co-star Jason Mewes on-stage for some extreme (and extremely funny) sex-talk, including demonstrations of Mewes' "half-half-whole" technique (don't ask), and later (as a disc 2 bonus feature) approaching young London women with a the kind of pick-up lines (like "Let me get up in them guts") that only a guy like Mewes could get away with. Dropping F-bombs like there's no tomorrow, Smith is crude but intelligent (nobody makes it on luck alone), and this two-disc set will satisfy established fans and would-be converts alike. Likewise, Smith-haters will find nothing to change their minds, since Smith occasionally comes across as smug and self-satisfied, even when he's really not. What matters here is the humor of a self-effacing guy who's never quite sure if he deserves his own success. That puts Smith on even terms with his fans, and it's that dynamic, more than anything else, that makes these concer! ts a whole lot of fun. --Jeff Shannon

These dvds will make you laugh out loud almost uninterrupted, and it's something even people who have never heard of Smith's work will enjoy.
Excellent purchase, would rate it even higher than 5 stars if i could
Kevin Smith for those in the dark is the director and star of cult classics like clerks and mallrats,who has also found a demand to cameo in things he loves such as the new die hard movie and law and order,he is a geek of sorts and this is his stand up shows albeit with a twist,the whole thing centres around questions from an adoring public,most of which are,yes you guessed it,geeks.
Nevertheless,this is funny stuff,maybe not as funny as some would have you believe,i wasnt screaming the house down,falling off my chair,vomiting from the pain of laughter or such,but i was entertained and found smith to be excellent at telling stories that are insightful and crude,in parts this is very blue,but it works,well for me anyway.
The first Q&A on disc one takes place in Canada, and is really the disc that will keep your interest for repeat viewing and rates 10/10 for me personally. The second disc which takes place in London does not keep me interested so much for repeat viewing, this however is not down to Kevin Smith but instead the audience who and came across uninterested and unintelligent with silly and boring questions, Smith just about manages to pull it back though. The best part of disc 2 is seeing Jason Mewes candidly being filmed going about London.
I've had this a while now and disc one gets a lot of repeat business from me, it's absolutely hilarious and a must have for Kevin Smith fans! And you may love the London show from disc two, maybe it's just me missing something but the Canada show really makes it worth it.
I'm a big fan of Kevin Smith's movies and if you enjoy his DVD commenteries then this is right up your street.
From watching Dora The Explorer whilst high, to what links Chuck Norris, Chewbacca and Jesus Christ, the english media, a very alternative ending to Lord oF The Rings, shooting your wife for playboy, Prince as a jehovah witness, your parents having a quickie in a public toilet and Ninja's saving Jesus from the cross just some of the topics that Kevin Smith can deviate to from a simple question like "do you ever get writers block"
Here Smith is live on stage answering questions on disc one form a largerly student audience in Toronto and on the 2nd disc in London. The whooping from the audience in Toronto compaired to London makes perhaps the 2nd disc funnier where Smith isn't interupted as much.
Smith has his pet "chav" in toe with Jason Mewes making guest appearance.
This is 3 hours of very funny anecdotes and Smith who uses real incidents to create dialogue for his films is at times painfully candid much to the embarrasement of his wife and mother.
Only thing I would say about this DVD is there are a lot of references to the original An Evening With kevin Smith and if you want to get the most out of this one you should really try and get your hands on a copy of the first one to watch first.
Definately worth watching and look out for quite a few easter eggs across the 2 discs as well.
It really is quite refreshing to watch a Writer/Director speaking so candidly and truthfully about their lives.
