Library JournalPop-culture vulture Muir updates his 2002 original to include Smith’s Jersey Girl, Zack and Miri Make a Porno, Cop Out, and Red State plus the gone-in-a-blink Clerks animated series. He also presents seven theories on why the characters of perennial stoners Jay and Silent Bob (the latter played by Smith himself) are so popular, and a glossary of “Smithisms.” This update takes the director from making his signature comedies to mainstream Hollywood fare like the Bruce Willis vehicle Cop Out to the deadly serious and superb Red State. Smith, alas, has abdicated the director’s throne, but still enjoys a fiercely loyal following and will continue to inspire fledgling filmmakers to follow their dreams. Solid for film collections.
