First and most importantly, you have to be very well prepared to watch "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" if you want to have any hope of enjoying it to its full potential (assume, for the sake of argument, that this is both possible and desirable). Not only do you need to watch all of writer-director Kevin Smith's earlier films (to wit, "Clerks," "Mallrats," "Chasing Amy" and "Dogma"), but you also need to have seen "American Pie," watched enough "Dawson's Creek" to know why Dawson should drown Pacey in the creek, and at least recognize every film Ben Affleck and Matt Damon have made in the past decade (know the title and a one line synopsis of what the film is about).
You need to do this for two reasons. First, it is the only way you can get all of the in-jokes in this film, which is heavily self-referential vis-a-vis the Smith oeuvre. In fact, you are better off using one hand to tick off the names of all the people from Smith's earlier films who are NOT in this movie (Stan "the Man" Lee immediately springs to mind). Second, you will need all this knowledge to be able to explain to the person next to you why Ben Affleck sometimes is playing himself, sometimes is playing somebody else (Holden McNeill from "Chasing Amy"), and sometimes is playing himself playing somebody else (Chuckie from "Good Will Hunting II: Hunting Season").
"Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" is another one of those films where two guys go off to Hollywood to stop tinsel town from ruining their good reputations with a film. Jay (Jason Mewes) and Silent Bob (Kevin Smith) have always played small but pivotal roles in Smith's films (e.g., the "Chasing Amy" speech in "Chasing Amy"), but this time they not only get to be ABOVE the title of the film, they get to be IN the title of the film.

The fifth and final entry in Kevin Smith's New Jersey "trilogy", Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back finds the pot smoking duo (Jason Mewes and Smith respectively)on a cross country trip to Hollywood to stop a movie about their likenesses Bluntman & Chronic from being made. On their way they encounter a group of sexy jewel thieves (Shannon Elizabeth, Eliza Dushku, Ali Larter, and Smith's real life wife whose name I forget), while outrunning dimwitted wildlife conservationist Will Ferrell. The dialogue is far beyond vulgar, and its downright hilarious, and its a fitting send off of Smith's series. Disc 2 is loaded with special features, and they are great (especially the deleted scenes). Kevin Smith film regulars Ben Affleck and Jason Lee also star, as do Clerks stars Jeff Anderson and Brian 'O Halloran, and an ensemble cast of cameo appearences by Jason Biggs, James Van der Beek, Mark Hamil, Carrie Fisher, Matt Damon, Gus Van Sant, Wes Craven, Shannon Doherty, Chris Rock, Tracey Morgan, George Carlin, Seann William Scott, and Judd Nelson. Strongly recommended to anyone with a crude sense of humor.

Who'd have anticipated it? I grew up never needing to be told "just say no to drugs". I always focused on serious subjects when contemplating what movies I'd make given a chance. And now I find myself in a world where the most innocent cinematic diversion are often silly farces about potheads. The riotous hoot "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" is a prime example. I wasn't sure about it all the way through. Ali Larter was recently one of my favorite actresses. At least she doesn't take such a disastrous fall herein as Kirsten Dunst did in "The Virgin Suicides". Refreshingly, Ali's character Chrissie admits to being a "bad girl cliche". She gave me pause by repreating a frequent movie assertion (hopefully strictly an urban legend) about what girls don't do. But she gives a new twist, belying the claim at a point where she nearly dooms herself and co-consrirators thereby. Hence one could make a rhyme about her role: "Ali Larter plays the ......" All in all, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" is one of the most surprising bits of comic relief I've seen lately.

I had been looking forward to this "New Jersey Trilogy" finale for a long time and I am happy to say that it was well worth the wait. Not only was this movie the funniest of all 5 of Smith's films, it was one of the funniest I have seen in a very long time. I'll be the first one to admit that (especially compared to its predecessors) the plot and main storyline are pretty thin, but it doesn't take long to realize that that is kinda the point. Its pretty obvious that after the first 4 films in the "trilogy", Smith finally had the freedom to do whatever he wanted when making this movie, and takes full advantage of it. Jason Mewes is at his best as the "in your face" Jay and his comments are made that much funnier when you are looking at Silent Bob's facial expressions & body language whenever Jay goes on one of his rants. I was a bit disappointed that Dante & Randall had such small parts, but at the same time, I can't imagine this movie being any funnier. And any movie with even a brief appearance by George Carlin is worth watching. George is the king of comedy, and his short part is one of the most hilarious parts of this movie.
One thing needs to be understood by people interested in this film (and really all of Smith's films). Kevin Smith makes his movies for the movie fan, because that is what he is. If you aren't the type of person who can watch the same flick over and over again, recite your favorite quotes, remember actors & actresses; there is a lot in this film (and other Smith films) that will go right over your head. As one reviewer put it, Smith writes his dialogue in a way that lets us movie buffs feel like we are "in the know", and this is usually alienating for the viewer who could care less about any of that stuff. So if you are wondering why the customer reviews for this movie tend to be extreme (a lot of 5 & 1 star ratings), there is your answer.
