Product Description

Product Description

Romantic comedy written and directed by Kevin Smith, starring Ben Affleck as Ollie Trink, a rich and successful New York media publicist with a beautiful wife, Gertrude (Jennifer Lopez) and a baby on the way. Ollie's life seems too good to be true until tragedy strikes: Gertrude dies in childbirth, leaving Ollie alone with his new baby daughter. Emotionally destroyed, Ollie moves out of New York to live with his father, Bart (George Carlin), in New Jersey - but things continue to deteriorate and Ollie is fired from his job. Over time he strikes up a tentative friendship with Maya (Liv Tyler), a girl who works in his local video store, who - along with his now seven-year-old daughter, Gertie (Raquel Castro) - helps him to see that it's what's inside that matters, rather than the outward trappings of success.

Unlike the mass Band-Waggon jumpers of this world, who constantly slate this movie when holding it in comparison to Kevin Smith's earlier efforts, Im a fan. I loved Clerks, Dogma, and Chasing Amy for there ascerbic humour and unique storylines, I loved Mallrats and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back for being, just plain simple laugh out loud comedies. In Jersey Girl Smith made a movie thats just flat out enjoyable, and no comparison to his previous 5 should take away from that. It may not carry his usual edgy dialouge, but the whole point for me is that it doesnt need to. As far as Smith selling out to the mainstream goes, if its the movie he wanted to make then how can he be? The cast( Affleck and Carlin especially) are all excellent, The movie looks superb and it deserves far more recognition that it recieved.

This is the strange Kevin Smith film as it's the one that doesn't take place in the View Askew universe and is his first step away from his beloved characters.

This is done to mix effect, because this isn't a bad movie - actually quite enjoy it - but it is definitely his weakest film. There just seems to be something missing in the plot that makes it feel unfinished, plus it's a little cheesy.

I was a bit apprehensive about getting this, but I'm glad I did as it is a good film, even if it does feel a little bit too sugary/feel good at times.

The plot revolves around a man whose wife dies in labour and he is left to raise the kid on his own and subsequently loses his job and has to do something he hates for a living all the while wishing for something more.

The film tries to be more adult, but still has plenty of low brow humour that kind of stands out to be honest with you.

You should see this film if you fancy a dose of feel good, but not if you're a big fan of Jay and Silent Bob.

An excellent film, I can not understand why it got so slated at the American box office. There are some very touching points made in this film about how alone people feel when someone close to them dies and the responsibilities which people have to take on when someone close to you die's. Ben Affleck gives a fantastic performance and I feel that J Lo shouldn't have been in the film but hey ho life goes and they made the best of it.
ALL IN ALL A EXCELLENT FILM AND A MUST BUY

Jersey Girl flew by at my local cinema. As someone who had seen and largely enjoyed the director Kevin Smith's previous work this surprised me.
Having now seen the film I can confirm that it merited more than one week in the smallest screen at my local multiplex. I think this film suffered for two reasons 1, It is the second outing for the pairing of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez and their 1st, Gigli, was so bad that this film was tainted by association. 2, Kevin Smith is associated with films that appeal largely to teenagers and twentysomethings. In the View Askew universe he became an unlikely icon for the film obsessed, self referential, pop-culture savvy genereation. This involved a lot of swearing and a explicit sexual discussions. There is a big audience that this reputation would put off.
Neither criticism stands up in the face of this film. Jennifer Lopez departs pretty early on and the central romantic lead of the adult narrative goes to Liv Tyler. Also Kevin Smith has moved on from Jay and Silent Bob. Those fans who adored Clerks, Mallrats and Jay and Silent Bob strike back will find that this is a different type of film. In terms of Smith's previous work the greatest similarity is to Chasing Amy. It is more thoughtful, more reflective.
Having said that this is still a comedy, albeit with sad undertones. It isn't a straightforward relaxing, cheer yourself up after a bad day, laugh a minute film. It is genuinely touching in places and truly sad in others.
The plot is reminiscent of 90s film Jack and Sarah but with less slapstick. I enjoyed it and think it got a rough ride on its theatrical release. If you have liked Kevin Smith films before and can tolerate a film without Jay and Silent Bob then go on - give this a try. If you've been turned off Smith before and found his work too crude for your tastes then grit your teeth and give him another go - you never know you might surprise yourself.

My husband and I saw this film on television originally and enjoyed it so much that I bought the DVD as part of his Easter gift this year. We have watched the film again and once more found the story entertaining, moving, and funny. The characters are attractive, especially the little girl who sparkles throughout.

Ben Affleck plays a succesful businessman whose wife dies in childbirth, leaving him to raise their baby daughter alone. He loses his high-powered job, moves in with his crusty but lovable father, and meets and falls and love with spirited but lovable Liv Tyler. And he discovers (surprise, surprise) that love is more important than success! There's a startlingly original message for a movie.

This film is very bland, dull and exceedingly sentimental. There is a brief amusing cameo by Will Smith, but he is gone all too quickly. And the finale of the film, where father and daughter perform a duet from the musical 'Sweeney Todd' at the school pageant, causing the headmistress to faint with shock, raises a faint smile (though one can't help wondering what she was doing during rehearsals). However, most of the film is entirely and instantly forgettable, and it's hard to believe that this was made by the same people who did the brilliant and hilarious 'Dogma'. A huge disappointment.
