Writer-director Kevin Smith's fifth and final installment of his New Jersey Chronicles (which began in 1994 with the breakout, low-budget comedy CLERKS) is a chance for scene-stealing, foulmouthed stoner Jay (Jason Mewes) and his taciturn sidekick/'hetero life mate' Silent Bob (Smith) to carry their own movie. When comic store mogul Brodie (Jason Lee, reprising his MALLRATS role) informs Jay and Silent Bob that a movie featuring their comic book alter egos, Bluntman and Chronic, is about to be made, the duo demands a cut from the comic's creator, Holden (Ben Affleck, in his CHASING AMY role). Holden explains that his ex-partner, Banky (Lee again) has sold them out, and shows them some angry Internet posts from Bluntman and Chronic fans. Fearing for their reputations, Jay and Silent Bob embark on a cross-country odyssey to Hollywood to stop the film. En route, they run afoul of a Charlie's Angels-type jewelry thief ring--one of whom, Justice (Shannon Elizabeth) takes a liking to Jay--an orangutan, a Federal Wildlife Marshall (Will Ferrell), and Miramax studio security. Smith's fond farewell to his intertwined Jersey characters is a lovingly crude, broad comedy rife with celebrity cameos, slapstick movie spoofs, and clever jabs at Hollywood.

The only special feature is the audio commentary and there is no subtitles on this Blu-Ray edition which I have confirmed.
If you don't split your sides laughing at least once during this movie then there's no hope for you!
I had to get the four prior Smith movies before I'd let myself watch this (that was the geek in me) and I'm so glad I did, otherwise half of the 'in jokes' would have just gone over the top of my head. On the other hand I think this would be enjoyable to anyone who isn't easily offended.
There are just too many favourite scenes for me to mention, but one that springs to mind right now is the scene outside of the diner! Just. Too. Funny! Not to mention the commentary, deleted scenes (complete with introductions from Smith and Jason Mewes) a gag reel and hours of other cool stuff.
This is the ultimate culmination of the dynamic duo that is Jay and Silent Bob, and although I'm sad to see them go, this movie rocks!
but the movie still rocks
For a long time i have always thought us Brits were the best at delivering toilet humour and vulgarity to a film, but i have to say Kevin Smith gives us a run for our money here. However, like the American pie movies, this is only likely to strike a chord with the younger adult audiences, and the older generations probably won't get the jokes and tut tut at the huge amount of profanity.
Basically Jay and Silent Bob are a couple of stoners who hang out at a convenience store in New Jersey, and they have had comic book characters based upon them. Once they hear that a movie is being produced using their characters but with real actors, they embark on a mission to stop the film causing havok throughout their journey. On their way they meet some of the American pie cast and you will see a lot of references to other movies.
All in all this is a great value Dvd set comprising 2 discs. The features disc is colossal with some extremely funny outakes that you wished were left in the theatrical release. Picture and sound are of a very high quality and if you have a dirty sense of humour, this is a must for your collection and superb value for money. Buy it!
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…
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.
