Quothe Kevin Smith: it does seem kind of exploitative

This is coming from the same guy who made a ton from this guy being a space cadet stoner? Check out Jason Mewes doing commenary on some of the DVDs. If thats not high (and not from weed), then I don't know what is.

I liked the first part of his quote, Drdank:

If the idea of a camera following him around impedes his drug use, that's great.
While he's exploited his friend a goodly bit, he's also obviously concerned enough to say, "Hey, if it gets him off of that shait, do it!"

...updated lyrics to Jay's Clerks rap...

'noids 'noids 'noids doin' smokin weed, doin' coke, bootin' H, noddin' off...

I'm so out of touch...what exactly does "Snootchie bootchies" mean?
2003-04-08 02:24:49 PM  

Will it be a Documentary of him in REHAB???

I thought a judge just sent him to betty ford?

2003-04-08 02:34:41 PM  
Mewes usually plays a pot-smoking slacker in Smith's movies

Usually? Hmm, I wasn't aware of his other characters in Kevin's movies. And here I always thought his artistic range limited him to the "pot-smoking slacker" role.

It'll be about two hours of this...

Did you know that if you're pregnant you can have sex until the third trimester?
2003-04-08 06:35:36 PM  
Hmm.. and I thought I'd miss HBO after I cancelled the premium channels on my cable.

Can you really be considered an actor if you don't have to act any different to be in character?
2003-04-08 06:38:28 PM  
wasn't he missing like 5 months ago?

i remember reading the article, it said that no one had seen/talked to him for months before the article was written

What makes a "documentary" different from a "reality show"? Is it because we only get to see the subject's miserable life for an hour, rather than the repeated torment of a series (you want to look away, but you keep coming back each week).
2003-04-08 06:43:23 PM  
I watch TV, am proud of it and will watch this show. I watch all kinds of crap. Im on the Internet all day long (which is just as bad as TV, all you tele-haters) and I play video games like a madman. Someone follow my ass around.

"I don't watch TV" = Look how cool I am. My parents took my TV away, but they let me keep the computer!!! HAHAHAAAA Im SO COOL. I don't have a TV!!! IM SO COOL

2003-04-08 06:43:24 PM  
I'd make like a circus seal on it. Oh wait.....nevermind.

I thought he was missing...or dead...

or dead and missing...
2003-04-08 06:45:48 PM  
So, the found Mewes? Last I heard he was MIA for about a year.
2003-04-08 06:47:03 PM  
BigOrangeCat - Because if you call it a "documentary" you can claim it serves some socially-responsible purpose.

Look at all the "documentaries" about primative mating rituals.
2003-04-08 06:47:10 PM  

yeah, supposedly he was hiding out here in "ol' Rhody" until everything blew over with his p.o.
2003-04-08 06:47:22 PM  
Kevin Smith is giving it the following working title:

Jay and Silent Bob II: 1/2 Of My Empire Smokes Crack
2003-04-08 06:47:37 PM  
This is sick. Why would someone who made their fame and fortune by smoking the deadly drug of Marijuana get a show? Marijuana kills, peoples. Stop advocating its use.
2003-04-08 06:47:44 PM  

Hmmm... Courtney Love playing a manipulative twhat junkie who deserves to die.... And they call her an actress.
2003-04-08 06:48:24 PM  
Of course, they also call her a musician....
2003-04-08 06:48:35 PM  
What?! Pot dosen't kill people!

What planet did you grow up on MichaelJackson?!

All you motherfarkers are gonna pay, You are the ones who are the ball-lickers. We're gonna fark your mothers while you watch and cry like little biatches. Once we get to Hollywood and find those Miramax farks who are making that movie, we're gonna make 'em eat our shiat, then shiat out our shiat, then eat their shiat which is made up of our shiat that we made 'em eat. Then you're all farking next.

On Tuesday, he surrendered and pleaded guilty to probation violation charges. He admitted failing to report to his probation officer, take drug tests or undergo counseling. He also admitted leaving the state without permission and lying to his probation officer.


If I was Jason Mewes, I'd be MIA too. What a dumbass.
2003-04-08 06:51:11 PM  
Playa haters step off. Mewes is a comedic Genius. Seriously. He's got Boatloads more talent than ANYONE else in any Kevin Smith Movie (Kevin Smith excluded... Barely).

I really am being sincere but the above statement is pretty funny to me too. Why is that?

Snootchie Bootchies.

Holden: If the buzz is any indicator, that movie's gonna make some huge bank.

Jay: What buzz?

Holden: The Internet buzz.

Jay: What the fark is the Internet?!

You know it is messages like these that brighten my otherwise cloudy day. That is farking hilarious Damon_Ryde Well done sir...
2003-04-08 06:53:12 PM  
Oh great. MichaelJackson's back to troll.
2003-04-08 06:54:15 PM  

I don't dislike Mewes, don't get me wrong. I just don't think he should be considered an actor. He's very humorous, but in a sad, pathetic kind of way.

And most of what Smith wrote for the character of Jay was based on things that Mewes did in real life. I don't consider that acting.
2003-04-08 06:54:52 PM  
What you need is a fatty boom batty chronic blunt, and I guarantee you'll be seeing a sailboat, an ocean, and even some of those big-titted mermaids doing that lesbian shiat.
2003-04-08 06:55:32 PM  
I haven't seen Mall Rats or Chasing Amy. Would it be worth my time to download them?
2003-04-08 06:56:09 PM  
What makes a "documentary" different from a "reality show"?

Reality series aren't really about reality. They're just unknown improv actors thrown into contrived situations for the benefit of the camera. This is the reason I don't understand all the backlash against reality series as opposed to other forms of television. They're just shows with largely improvised dialogue. If they did it on Buffy for a night everyone would be spewing in their dungarees.

A documentary should be real and usually have some sort of theme or moral.

A reality show would pay him to live in a car in a super-mall parking lot while going through withdrawal. Entertainment at it's finest. A documentary will follow him around and try to use his life to illustrate some sort of point. BOOO!
2003-04-08 06:56:34 PM  
Who cares if he's acting or not if he's amusing? Jeez. There are lots of supposed "actors" who can't/don't act who I don't find half as amusing as Jay.

2003-04-08 06:56:42 PM  
TentaclePr0nRocks: Actually, Jason Mewes and the character Jay are entirely different. Jason's pretty introverted and quiet but he gets a kick out of playing Jay. The only thing they have in common is a drug habit.
2003-04-08 06:57:25 PM  
so we should expect to see people like jason lee, ben affleck, matt damon, brian o'halloran, joey adams, walt flanagan, steve dave, etc, and all of the rest of the people from the movies in this documentary?
and by the way, i always thougtht the rap was "noise, noise noise", not "noids, noids, noids". maybe that's just me.
2003-04-08 06:58:47 PM  
Chasing Amy, yes
Mallrats, only if you want to spend time watching it. (funny movie, though)
2003-04-08 06:59:07 PM  
Yes. Chasing Amy, in particular, is the best work Smith has done, imo.
