Hollywood to stop the movie,

Summary:

Director Kevin Smith stars in JAY AND SILENT BOB STRIKE BACK as the mostly mute half of a duo of drug dealers who get upset when they learn that their friend has sold a comic strip based on their lives to a real life studio in Hollywood. JAY AND SILENT BOB is a filthy-mouthed, extremely obscene comedy about a really stupid moron and his more intelligent, but taciturn, compadre.

Review:

Just when you thought the stoner drug comedy was dead, along comes Kevin Smith’s (DOGMA and CLERKS) new comedy JAY AND SILENT BOB STRIKE BACK. Very unhappily, the young audience at the screening seemed to completely embrace this filthy-mouthed, disgusting, contemptible work, proving once again that our culture is not just slouching toward Gomorrah, it’s hurtling toward that pit of perversion at hyperspeed. This metaphor from the STAR WARS movies is perfectly apt, because, who should show up at the end of this total piece of trash but actor Mark Hamill, Luke Skywalker himself, in a vulgar spoof of the mythic space opera made super-famous, and super-successful, by movie impresario George Lucas.

Director Kevin Smith plays Silent Bob, the mostly mute half of a duo of drug dealers who get upset when they learn that their friend has sold a comic strip based on their lives to real life Miramax Films. (Miramax is also partly owned by the Weinstein brothers, the owners of this movie’s distribution company, Dimension Films, a company the Weinsteins created to protect their Miramax partner, Disney.) The characters of Jay and Silent Bob have shown up in all of Smith’s previous movies. Jay and Silent Bob decide to go to Hollywood to stop the movie, because, first, their friend isn’t giving them any of the sale price and, second, because people are making fun of them and the movie on the Internet. Filled with constant use of the “f” word and a continual barrage of graphic sexual dialogue, JAY AND SILENT BOB STRIKE BACK follows this not-so-dynamic duo across country to the studio, where a lot of Hollywood in-jokes occur. Chris Rock, Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, George Carlin, Carrie Fisher, and Mark Hamill make appearances to laugh at themselves and make light of sexual promiscuity, including homosexual behavior.

Hopefully, JAY AND SILENT BOB STRIKE BACK will not play in Peoria, as the saying goes. One thing’s for sure, however, many parents, teachers, pastors, businesspeople, and taxpayers will have to deal with the terrible effects that this and other ill-conceived pagan garbage will have on the world’s children and their descendents. Perhaps Armageddon is indeed near.

Of course, the best way to combat the pagan hedonism of JAY AND SILENT BOB is by using the tools of media wisdom developed by MOVIEGUIDE® and the Christian Film & Television Commission. Your tax-deductible donations to the work of this ministry go a long way toward redeeming the values of the entertainment industry and creating a better, more civilized culture for future generations!
