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.
