Jay And Silent Bob Essay

922 words - 4 pages

Do I Get My Check? By Luke Jorgensen The movie "Jay and Silent Bob Strike back," written and directed by Kevin Smith, is a huge disappointment. After viewing the previous four of his films, "Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, and Dogma, my expectations were set well above the output of this film.

Charlie's Angels was obviously used for the sole fact of filling seats with teenage boys. Smoking weed with Scooby-Doo and the gang is just added crap to the pile of bad parodies. The actors were constantly making fun of themselves and the movie, which grew old quick. The addition of Charlie's Angels and Scooby-Doo did nothing but attract stoners and boners to the theater. "This may be the greatest picture ever made for 14-year-old boys."(NY Times) People targeted for the viewing of this film probably have not even seen Smith's other work. This is ludicrous since the themes and jokes used in this film can only be understood and appreciated by viewing the other films.Smith sold his soul to the god of money and materialism.
