BigMevy: you know, other than a Lesbo switching teams just cause she hadn't found the right guy yet.
Wadded Beef: Clerks was okay but Clerks 2 was superfail. I love his speaking engagements, though, as he's a terrific orator. Just hearing the story of his attempts to get Superman remade and the morons he dealt with is worth it alone.
Biledriver: It'd be better if he just brought the cartoon back.
nakedcritic: The only part I didn't care for was Goodman's recap of the events at the end - which I have heard some Smith non-fans say was their FAVORITE part. Go figure.
shoegaze99: Yeah, I like Kevin Smith the dude far more than I do his work.
Jizz Master Zero: BigMevy: you know, other than a Lesbo switching teams just cause she hadn't found the right guy yet.You missed the whole point if you thought that's what it was saying. She even flat-out states it in the movie: she's into whoever she's into, regardless of gender. Everyone tried to make it an absolute, you're either gay or straight, but she just loves who she loves and saying, "I'm only ever going to be with men," or, "I'm only ever going to be with women," is artificially cutting yourself off from the possibility of finding your true love. She never "switched sides" because she was never committed to one.
FuryOfFirestorm: I thought Kevin said his last movie was going to be a hockey-based comedy called "Hit Something"?
RevRaven: Also, as a random aside, I really Chasing Amy..but something never really sat well with me on that flick. The whole central conflict was "dude was bothered that his girlfriend used to be a whore". I've known plenty of whores and plenty of people (chicks and dudes) who've dated whores..and they all got over everything pretty quickly. I dunno, I know ya gotta have drama to have a story..it just seemed really forced and amazingly immature as a plot device.
LouDobbsAwaaaay: theurge14: Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back is unwatchableTHIS. I haven't watched anything he's done since that turd hit the theater. He should reimburse anyone who paid to see that thing.
Disgruntled Goat: He also said "Red State" was his last movie.
theflatline: Clerks 2 and Strikes back were Smith,Affleck, etc versions of Cannonball Run 1,2.Just some guys having a good time.And you cannot beat female logic as exposed in Clerks. 37
realmolo: Smith's movies only seem good when you are 18-25. More than ANY other director, he knows how to hit that demographic.The problem is, the day you turn 26, you can't watch his movies anymore.You've outgrown them.I have a nostalgiac love for Kevin Smith movies. But whenever I happen to catch one on TV, I think 'Man, this is pretty juvenile and stupid and unfunny."That said, the "Jay" and "Silent Bob" characters are pretty great inventions, and they're almost always funny.
Wadded Beef: I love his speaking engagements, though, as he's a terrific orator. Just hearing the story of his attempts to get Superman remade and the morons he dealt with is worth it alone.
Carth: What was the last good comedy Kevin Smith made? Dogma?
