Overview

The frequently recurring title characters, employed by writer and director Kevin Smith as supporting players in several of his films, are put to rest with this comedy that focuses on them exclusively. Jay (Jason Mews) and Silent Bob (Smith) are a pair of stoned New Jersey slackers who have long been used as the templates for a pair of popular comic book heroes, Bluntman and Chronic. When they learn that their alter egos are to be turned into a major motion picture without their consent or compensation, the pair sets off for Hollywood to sabotage the production. Along the way, they encounter an ape, a nun (Carrie Fisher), the cast of Scooby-Doo, a Charlie's Angels-style band of sexy women who use them as stool pigeons in a diamond heist, and an unhinged wildlife ranger (Will Ferrell). They also meet up with some regulars from the Smith canon, including Alyssa Jones (Joey Lauren Adams), Brian O'Halloran as Dante Hicks, Jason Lee as Banky Edwards, Alanis Morissette as God, and actors Ben Affleck and Matt Damon in dual roles as themselves and two other familiar characters. Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back co-stars numerous other recognizable performers in roles of various sizes, including Shannen Doherty, Jason Biggs, James Van Der Beek, Shannon Elizabeth, Tracy Morgan, Judd Nelson, Chris Rock, and George Carlin, among others.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Karl Williams
The frat-boy humor inherent in the work of writer/director Kevin Smith gets a serious workout in this road trip comedy that inspires an equal number of guffaws and winces. Supposedly the last of his "New Jersey" films and the swan song for his alter-ego characters of Jay (Jason Mewes) and Silent Bob (Smith himself), this ostensible adventure is in reality a messy conglomeration of everything that composes the filmmaker's oeuvre. These include movie parodies, celebrity cameos, an ironic self-awareness apparent in the often expository dialogue, an obsession with pop culture in general and comic books in particular, plus a mind-boggling number of homosexuality-related jibes and gags involving farts, filtered through the sensibilities of a sexually retarded teenage drug abuser. The bottom line on the world created by Smith is that he seems perfectly aware of all of this, embracing it with the fiendish glee of a demented toddler given free reign over a fictional universe where it's okay to make derogatory jokes about guys having sex with other guys. Smith has publicly stated that his are the films that would result if an average, going-nowhere slacker were given the power and financial wherewithal to make a motion picture, and he's cannily right on the money. The only question left, as one of his characters puts it directly to the audience, "Why would anyone pay to see this?" The answer: If you're a skateboarding, comic book-collecting, baseball cap-wearing pot smoker, it's probably your cup of tea and you'll be delighted. If not, then it probably isn't and you've been warned.

Great DVD. It cant get funnier than this. This is a classic. The monkey steals the movie! We love Jay And Silent Bob. Cant wait to see them in concert in Watseka Illinois on March 30, 2012.

This movie is filled with plenty of jokes, but not for the whole family. It has its fair share of corny-stupid jokes, and the first time you see it you won't appreciate all of the great work that was done here. You need to watch it a few times before you realize just how many jokes and funny references there are in the movie. Definitely check out the deleted scenes, they cut a bunch of outrageous and hilarious stuff.

Bluntman & Chronic is a comic book based on Jay and Silent Bob, when they discover the rights have been sold to Hollywood for a movie they decide to travel to Tinseltown to get their cut of the pie. I found the opening scenes very funny along with the scenes that had Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill in them; but I found the movie overall to be a big let down and I¿m a person who loves movies where every other word is the F-word. Strike Back tried to incorporate too much in a short span of time. Instead of a retrospective of their other films, they should have concentrated on one storyline. I felt that Dogma had a well-plotted story and the jokes worked better within that framework. I¿m glad that I rented it.

This is a hilarious movie.At the beginning they are at a store singing when two kids ask them for something when the owner of the store comes out but Jay and Silent Bob get back at them but get a restraining order and have to stay away a hundred feet away.Then they found out that a movie was being made and they try to stop it.Then Jay falls in love with a jewel thief and Silent Bob gets a monkey as a friend.Then they end up in a huge mess.

This is quite possibly Kevin Smith¿s best movie. although it focuses entirely too much attention on the two boneheads who have achieved a huge Internet fame for themselves by hanging on to being in every Smith film to date. At the same time, however, never has Smith released a more biting critique of Hollywood and his own work than through the jokes and crude humor almost constantly coming from Jay. Jay of course taking lead as the ¿C.L.I.T. Commander¿ ''Coalition Liberation of Itneninant Tree Dwellers'' which is a small branch of the ''L.A.B.I.A'' the ''Liberate Apes Before Imprisoning Apes Movement'' and more that all contribute to the high low caliber of this i feel this film is up there with smiths best movies yet, the most hillarious by far!

This is probably Kevin Smith's funniest movie. It's great that ''Jay and Silent Bob'' got their own movie, when you see them in Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, and Dogma, you just want to see more of them. I saw this movie in the theaters and thought it was good, and when It came out on dvd and I watched it a second and third time, I finally realized how funny it really was. Just watch this Movie! ''Snooth to the nootch!'' -Jay(Jason Mewes)

There isnt a movies in the world that will make you laugh half as many times as you will with J and Silent Bob. I've seen it probobly a hundred times(no joke) and it is still as funny as it was the first time I saw it. Non stop laughs and Cameo's. Everybodys in it.

Just wondering if you realize that one of the two ''boneheads,'' as you called them, that appear in every Kevin Smith film -- well, that one of those boneheads, Silent Bob, IS Kevin Smith! As for my review of this movie, there will never be enough space for the wonderful things I have to say about this & every other Kevin Smith film. He approaches many ideas that people are too afraid to publicly address. Thanks, Kevin!

This movie had to be the funniest stuff I have ever seen. There has never been a funnier movie that I can remember, it was about time Jay and Silent Bob got their own movie since they're the main reason I laughed in any other Kevin Smith movie. SNOOGENS
