One of the most talked-about movies of the year is also one of the funniest! In this hilarious comic fantasy from writer/director Kevin Smith (Clerks, Chasing Amy) two banished angels (Ben Affleck and Matt Damon) find a loophole that would get them back into Heaven. The only snag? They'll be destroying existence in the process. In an effort to stop them, The overworked Voice of God (Alan Rickman)taps cynical mortal Bethany (Linda Fiorentino) to save the world by preventing the angels from reaching their unholy destination: New Jersey! Throw in two unlikely prophets named Jay and Silent Bob (Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith), the quick-witted yet little-known thirteenth apostle (Chris Rock) and a sexy, former muse with a case of writer's block (Selma Hayek) and you've got an hysterical and thrilling race against time packed with an all-star cast.

The Special Edition is great from the start. The cover art is amazing, but the new design for the disks, which also happen to match with the DVD menus are hilarious!
Of course, with any Special Edition created by View Askew and Kevin Smith, there are lots of goodies such as deleted scenes, and outtakes. You are also treated to some commentary by Kevin and other people involved in the film (again just as in any other Special Edition by Mr. Smith). Most of which is praising you for your wise choice in purchasing this special edition, and scorning those who did not.
All in all, this DVD is well worth the few extra bucks over the regular Dogma DVD.
This movie will most likely offend anyone sensitive about the topic of religion. And if you think movies today have too much violence and bad language... welllll... perhaps you should rent a Disney movie instead! But for anyone looking for sarcastic humor and religious satire, you're guaranteed good entertainment with "Dogma."
While seeing Ben Affleck and Matt Damon together again is a highlight of the movie, the best part about it are the smaller parts. Chris Rock as Rufus is hilarious - and I don't even like Chris Rock! Alan Rickman as the voice of God is perfect... there's nothing that improves a movie more than sarcastic British wit. Janeane Garofalo, in a bit part, is wonderful - as usual - and Alanis Morissette makes the perfect God (I'll worship her any day).
If you're looking for something to liven up your weekend, go out and rent "Dogma." And better yet, rent "Clerks," "Mallrats," "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back," and "Chasing Amy" with it and get your fill of Jay, Silent Bob, snootchie bootchies, the Jedi Mind Trick, and comic book fun.
The extra material, which I've been waiting ever so patiently for, is great as well. Look for the "Bethany Boo Hoo" scene - one which should've made the final cut. I did, however, find it somewhat of a relief that some scenes were deleted (the s**t demon / hospital scene was a perfect example).
I'm overly impressed with this special edition. I look forward to the summer release of "The Return of Jay & Silent Bob".
