Format: Paperback
I thought that this film was going to be a sell out!I was partly right, but it still compelled me with Kevin Smith's intelligent sense of human. If you are a Clerks fan you will feel clever at all of the neat little references, and you will be constantly looking out for characters/actors such as snow ball, Randel etc. Definately worth a watch!

5.0 out of 5 stars James R. Adams : Not a fan, so his review is inaccurate 20 Oct. 2001
By Karen Mitchell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you don't appreciate the Kevin Smith Films to date, don't bother reading this. If you saw the film, and can't get enough of it, then this book is ideal. Buying this book and expecting under 200 "F" words or an apology for the language, one must be either unaquainted with the title characters or any of their exploits from 5 DVD's and numerous other print sources, or simply naive. Religious zealots will not enjoy much of this script, as many do not find humor based on oral sex and nuns funny. The irreverant tone is what makes the film, and this book is just the same in a hard copy. If you missed some of the jokes, inside or not, in print they can become more clear. Marshall Willenholly, for example is not only the Law enforcement officer chasing our heroes, but also the three first names of the family in Land of the Lost. Jokes like that can be detected more clearly in this easy to read and understand format. I cannot recommend it enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-read for any aspiring Kevin Smith fanboy 20 Sept. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I watched Jay and Silent Bob without ever seen any of the previous Kevin Smith films (Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Clerks, etc.) and found it to be genuinely entertaining. Going back to see it now after watching his other films makes it even more entertaining for the inside jokes. Kevin Smith is no doubt one of the great minds in Hollywood (or New Jersey at least), and gives moviegoers something they have sorely been missing for a long time ... dialogue. Yeah, those exchanges between characters on the screen that are meant to develop the characters and story while at the same time entertain you. His technique reminds me of classic films like Some Like It Hot where the comedy is not only in what the characters are saying and doing, but the motivations that drive them to their madness. With all the bad comedies out there, a purely funny and tongue-and-cheek movie like J&SB Strike Back is a great refresher. Besides, who couldn�t be drawn into a story about a man and his monkey?

5.0 out of 5 stars The best script of the summer 28 Sept. 2001
By Clyde Pennamon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back has become a soon-to-be classic among independent comedies. Kevin Smith has establish himself as being a take no prisoner writer/director. Having all of his characters returning for this final chapter in the New Jersey Chronicles is not only a treat, but a pretty sweet fairwell.
See the movie, buy the book. Trust Me.

4.0 out of 5 stars So Long, Jay and Silent Bob? 10 Jan. 2003
By R. W. Rasband - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Here is the complete screenplay of Kevin Smith's magnum opus, complete with all the lines and bits the verbally incontinent writer/director was unable to fit into the finished film. The foreword is a heartfelt tribute to Jason Mewes (Jay). Smith claims that the guy is really acting a role, and not just playing himself. Uh-huh. Smith is, of course, the creator of some of the most hilarious and elaborate [gas] and fart jokes ever conceived, and that shows up here in full force. But he is also a writer of great perception, subtlety, and invention, and that also peeks through from time to time. Supposedly Smith is now, like Woody Allen, going on to make more mature films like the upcoming "Jersey Girl." I hope he doesn't leave out the funny. It's his special gift.
4.0 out of 5 stars Read Some of the Snappiest, Most Hilarious Dialog Ever 14 Mar. 2003
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Kevin Smith is the master of delivering snappy, intelligent, and HILARIOUS dialog in his films, and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back is no exception.
The storyline is fairly simple, in a Kevin Smith way: local stoners & sometime dealers Jay and Silent Bob find out there's going to be a movie made about comic book characters based on them, read a few nasty comments about it on the Internet, and decide to trash the movie. Basically, the story is more a vehicle for an homage to the previous Jersey flicks featuring the improbable duo, with appearances by nearly every character from the previous films.
That, however, doesn't stop Smith from putting some of the funniest dialog ever into the mouths of all those characters, and reading the screenplay is almost as good as watching the movie so heavily dependent on said dialog is the story (though you miss out on some pretty cute girls!)
