I must preface this review with a disclaimer. I've never seen any of the "Jay & Silent Bob" movies before.
This movie does not stand on it's own. If you've never seen any of the previous movies, or are not a fan of Kevin Smith, pass on this one because so many of the gags are meant for the "insiders".
The plot of the film, if you can call it a plot, has the characters Jay (Jason Mewes) and Silent Bob (Kevin Smith) on a quest to stop a movie from being made about themselves. This journey takes them from New Jersey to Hollywood California. Along the way they meet up and have adventures with the gang from Scooby-Doo, Carrie Fisher, George Carlin, steal a monkey and more.
I'm sure that I would have enjoyed the movie more if I had seen the previous ones. Instead I sat there not laughing for the first 2/3rds of the film. Once they got to Hollywood things took a turn for the better because there were more gags that I knew and more references to movies that I had seen.
The movie contains a lot of strong language and many crude references to various parts of the human body. Definitely not one to take the kids to.

I must say this is a very enjoying experience. I am a big fan of Kevin Smith and his work though. If you have not seen : "Clerks" "Chasing Amy" "Mallrats" and "Dogma", you will not understand a substantial portion of the jokes. I recommend you rent these movies and then go see the movie. It is extremely funny. It is the best comedy of the year by far. A lot of you might not agree with me, but that is only my opinion.
There is about 5 swear words per min., so I recomend you don't take your extremely young kids to it. Or kids, don't bring your parents.
See it today

Ok...If you have at least heard of mallrats, clerks and dogma you will get the movie. Yes there is extensive language and sexual inuendos. But its a very funny movie. The only time i have even heard of jay and silent bob was from watching Dogma. And I loved this movie.
I give it a 4 out of 5 for humor. If you want to laugh even if you don't get it go see this movie.

Well written, enjoyable, adult comedy. Kevin Smith rocks.

Generation X's answer to Laurel and Hardy is Jay and Silent Bob and their new movie "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back," the pair traveled to Los Angeles when they learned they're not getting any money from the feature film version of "Bluntman and Chronic."
There are plenty of laughs as the two slackers keep running into weird people. Expect lots of celebrity camoes and plenty of laughs, as jay and Silent Bob takes on hollywood with a veageance.

If you are a Kevin Smith fan, this movie tops off a great career for Kevin Smith. Referencing something from every one of his last movies: Clerks, Mallrats, Dogma, and Chasing Amy, those in the know will find the reference hillarious. Those who have not seen those movies will scratch their heads in confusion.
