Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back
Once upon a time in a galaxy very, very close to New Jersey Jay and Silent Bob stumble upon something new called the internet and discover that Miramax is making a movie about their alter-egos, "Bluntman & Chronic." In order to hang onto what tiny crumbs of credibility they have left, the dazed duo set off for California to stop the evil movie studio from making the flick.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Has the lazy, bric-a-brac atmosphere of one of those blown-off movies made during down time on some bigger affair."
‑ Scott Foundas, Variety
"Smith, coming off the madly audacious Dogma, knows that he's slumming this time and revels in it."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"Kevin Smith fans will enjoy. Not for kids."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"A mess, yes, but a funny and highly enjoyable one."
‑ , Film4
"Tune out the dreck and there are enough laughs for it to be worthwhile."
‑ Adam Smith, Empire Magazine
"The perfect curtain call for these much-loved, wise but oh so stupid slackers."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"The picture lacks the mix of innocence and savagery that branded [Smith's] other films."
‑ Rita Kempley, Washington Post
"The epitome of self indulgence."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Movie Views
"I have no idea how it'll play for people unfamiliar with Smith's work, but I rolled with it."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"What do you want, some meditation on the human condition?"
‑ Ron Wells, Film Threat
"I admit to enjoying -- in a drunken, half-asleep kind of way -- parts of this ramshackle road movie with its running Miramax guest stars and its endless homo jokes."
‑ David Edelstein, Slate
"In keeping with the Smith rules, the movie is irreverent, self-referential, twisted, cheap and tasteless. And, of course, I mean that as the highest compliment."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"Like one massive inside joke that only regulars to the View Askew Universe will get, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back is the ultimate measure of Smith's undeniable nerdiness."
‑ Bill Gibron, PopMatters
"The film feels like a download of Mr. Smith's brain."
‑ Joe Lozito, Big Picture Big Sound
"I feel a strange disturbance in the Force."
‑ Jeffrey Overstreet, Looking Closer
