Kevin Smith's slackers get anything but a lazy DVD delivery. Fans of View Askew Productions should enjoy this special edition, dual-disc package that retires the love 'em or loathe 'em stoners. Disc one presents Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back in a widescreen 2.35:1 presentation and Dolby Digital 5.1 English or French soundtrack (all the better to hear the cussing, my dear). You can also listen to an amusing "Feature Commentary" with director Kevin Smith, producer Scott Mosier, and actor Jason Mewes, as well as view "Sneak Peaks" of 40 Days and 40 Nights, Clerks, Chasing Amy, Clerks Uncensored, the Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back soundtrack, and Dimension Cutting Edge Films. The good stuff comes on disc two, where the bulk of the bonus material comes from 42 deleted scenes (many of them yanked by the MPAA), introduced by Kevin Smith and guests. There's also a humorous "Gag Reel"; two music videos ("I Got High" by Afroman and "Kick Some Ass" by Stroke 9); "Morris Day and the Time -- Learnin' the Moves" and a "Guide to Morris Day and the Time" feature; storyboards; and the requisite bios and filmographies (an Easter Egg can be found at the top of Jason Mewes page). Still galleries give an on-the-set look, reveal the "Birth of a Poster," and delve into the Jay and Silent Bob comics. "The Secret Stash" is a collection of outtakes featuring Judd Nelson, Will Farrell, Jon Stewart, and Ben Affleck. Two Internet trailers and six TV spots round out the promo part, while Comedy Central's "Reel Comedy: Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" and a "Behind the Scenes Featurette" gives an insider's look at the first movie to bring Jay and Silent Bob to the forefront of a film, after making numerous appearances in Smith's other movies, and even a cameo in Scream 3. The only thing that could please fans more is the upcoming Clerks tenth anniversary release.

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.
