Lazy and childish, but not in the good way
12 July 2018
I watched this again to see if it's as bad as I remembered it to be (I would have rated it 1 star back in the day). Well, it's not AS bad and I can understand why some people like it... it's just that I don't.
I'm a big fan of Kevin Smith's early films - he showed that he could be crass and disgusting while simultaneously being clever and funny. That's quite a skill and one that I'm not sure even Joss Wheddon could get away with. The problem is that he stopped being clever and continued with the childishness. Now that's something that some people love - if you like the American Pie films then 'JaSBSB' is a film for you.
As for me, I can still appreciate fart and dick jokes, just make the joke better than "whoops, I farted!" or "I'm a woman who farts - outrageous!". It's just lazy writing.
