Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

To know the origin of "Snoochie-Boochies," you must spend An Evening with Kevin Smith. The Jersey-bred auteur of low-budget comedy proves equally adept as an uncensored raconteur, regaling five college audiences--his most devoted demographic--in this two-disc compilation of lively Q&A. Sporting his trademark slacker garb, Smith occasionally bites the loyal, sometimes moronic hands that feed him (as a result, audience participation is drop-dead hilarious), but he's arguably the most publicly and personally honest filmmaker to survive the insanity of Hollywood. His best stories lift the veil of show-biz decorum, describing absurd meetings with studio executives over his ill-fated screenplay Superman Lives; razzing the artsy pretensions of director Tim Burton; or exposing Prince (who hired him to direct a never-completed documentary) as a self-absorbed Jesus freak. These attacks aren't baseless; Smith's too smartly good-natured to provoke without purpose, and with an onstage visit by Jason Mewes ("Jay" to Smith's "Silent Bob"), this ribald, sharply assembled Evening compares favorably to Richard Pryor with its outrageous blend of comedy and candor. --Jeff Shannon

Product Description

An Evening With Kevin Smith is a no-holds-barred Q's most gifted filmmakers. Infamous for picking apart the pop culture landscape with films such as Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, the New Jersey native has become a veritable icon ofindep-endent film. Smith gives us a new lens to examine spirituality, sexuality, and human relationships. Get up close and - at times - very personal, with the man everyone has been waiting to hear from ... Silent Bob speaks!

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality entertainment that is constantly funny December 24, 2002
Format:DVD
Kevin Smith is the director behind five of my favorite movies. Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma and Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back were all created as a part of Kevin's "New Jersey Chronicles," in which each of the afformentioned movies had recurring characters from the previous films. Each film is laced with witty dialogue and even some serious messages mixed in.
On this DVD, Kevin talks about anything and everything ranging from the failed documentary with Prince to a soft-core porn involving Jason Mewes, who is known to all as Jay in the "New Jersey" movies. Kevin's most interesting topic was the controversey surrounding "Dogma." Kevin talks about the death threats he recieved, his Catholic up-bringing and about the time he picketted at his own movie. However, nothing is as amusing as the story behind his failed attempt to revive the Superman movie franchise. Kevin talks about his meetings with Warner Bros. executives and the producer at the time who had some unusual requests as to what he wanted included in the script.
All and all, if you are a fan of the Kevin Smith movies, you owe it to yourself to pick up a copy of this DVD. If you have not seen any of Kevin's movies, you owe it to yourself to buy every single one of them and then to buy this.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Evening to Remember December 28, 2002
Format:DVD
"An Evening with Kevin Smith" reveals just about everything you ever wanted to know about the genius behind the films "Clerks," "Mallrats," "Chasing Amy," "Dogma," and "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back." That's right, the really quiet guy actually has a lot to say, and it is all entertaining, insightful, interesting, and funny as hell. Coming from a guy who watches and listens to a lot of stand-up comedy, I was laughing pretty much non-stop.
Smith isn't trying to be funny... it just happens to turn out that way. His subtle and quiet tone makes it all the more entertaining and funny. Through the humor and sarcastic responses, there's nothing but honesty and sincerity about the filmmaking business that he is in.
With two disks, you get over 3 hours of Kevin Smith talking to various universities. As soon as the disks are over, you want to watch them again. I love all of Smith's movies, although I have to admit "Chasing Amy" is probably my least favorite (but I still think it's good), and watching this was not only funny and entertaining, but it was very informative. Smith isn't shy about answering the tough questions. (Some of them, he should be though. You'll know what I mean when you see it.)
He talks about everything. Some of the stuff he covers are what went on behind the shooting of his movies, his relationships with his actors and friends, critics who have bad-mouthed him, a really messed up director who's obsessed with friggen spiders, how he met his wife, his run in with Tim Burton (or not so much of a "run-in," more like a "press-in), Scott Mosier Stories, and much, much more.
The DVD set is really cool. To my surprise, the whole thing is WIDESCREEN. Always a major welcome, no matter what the content is.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly insightful commentary by an up and comer! September 7, 2004
Format:DVD
I was not a Kevin Smith Devotee, as most of his fans are. I think he's a good director, and he has cranked out some great movies. He does know how to write a good script as well.

So, I was pleasantly surprised when I viewed this to find out really insightful and wise Kevin Smith is. This documentary is a collection of snippets from a variety of college lectures he's done, but it doesn't feel choppy. Smith clearly understands the film business and it's culture better than most people whove been in the industry for decades. He fully admits exploiting it for what it's worth, but also manages to sidestep the pitfalls associated with ascent in Hollywood. It's a truly eye-opening look into the world of modern day filmmaking and celebrity.

I would also like to recommend this based on the fact that Smith is one of the best story tellers our society has. He really has a gift for just starting a story, leaving no stone unturned, and just engaging you into what he's relating. His story about writing the script for Superman will have you in tears. Another good one is his encounter with Prince. Smith has an easy-going, self-depricating style that's combined with a smart guy who LOVES the heck outta movies.

This is definitely a good documentary that non-Kevin Smith fans will enjoy and get something from. If you are a Kevin Smith fan...who are you kidding: You already own this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Kevin Delivers A 5 Star Performance December 3, 2002
Format:DVD
Kevin Smith has done it again. He has released another "can't miss" release. In "An Evening with Kevin Smith", Kevin, aka Silent Bob of Jay and Silent Bob fame, delivers a performance of the best moments from five question and answer sessions on a college tour he did. The DVD is cut very cleanly, and at times you can't even tell it is in different venues. During the 3 hour, yes, 3 hour DVD, Kevin addresses subjects such as where the character of Jay came from, how he succeeded when so many people said he would fail, his collaboration with Prince on a never seen documentary, and even on his first sexual experience with his then girlfriend, now wife, Jennifer. This DVD set is definitely worth the purchase to any follower of Kevin Smith, or to anyone who wants to get into the psyche of one of the most original, and often controversial, Writer/Director/Producer of the new millennium. This DVD definitely earned the FIVE STARS I gave it..... somewhere in the initial 10 minutes of viewing and carried it throughout. All I can say is "Thank you Kevin. Thank you for giving us all what others are too coward to approach."
