Crude, Inappropriate, Hilarious.
Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back is a sexy, funny movie about two dudes – Jay and Bob. Both are cult characters who have earlier appeared in movies like Clerks and Clerks II. If you don’t already know about them, you need to. Pronto! There have hardly ever been two funnier movie characters.
Anyway, Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back released in 2001. The film is written and directed by Kevin Smith, Silent Bob himself. The film is a tribute and farewell to the two lead characters. In the movie, Jay (Jason Mewes) and Silent Bob (Kevin Smith) find out that a comic book based on their likenesses is being made into a movie. They set out to get some cash from the comic book’s writer, only to learn that the characters based on them are being annihilated on the internet. They set out again, this time to stop the film from being made. En route to Hollywood, they encounter a gang of sexy babes who turn out to be jewel thieves. Jay falls in love with one of the sexy babes, steals a orangutan at her behest, fights off a stupid Federal Wildlife Marshal, but somehow manages to reach Hollywood, Silent Bob and orangutan in tow. Do they manage to stop the movie from being made? Do they get their due? Well, what the hell! Watch the movie to find the out.
The fact that Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back is funny is an understatement. It’s a laugh riot, no less. The two lead actors – Mewes and Smith – are superb. The movie has a huge amount of obscenities that come from Mewes, obviously since Smith plays Silent Bob. The movie also has well-enacted cameos from Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Shannon Elizabeth, Will Ferrell, Eliza Dushku, Ali Larter, Jennifer Smith, and a few others.
Jay and Silent Bob have a cult following. The movie is one big joke, and a great one at that. You won’t get all jokes unless you’re aware of Jay and Silent Bob. Watch Clerks first, before you watch this movie. Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back is crude, inappropriate, disparaging, hell, it’s hilarious. And that’s all that matters.
