Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back

We watched a recording of Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. We saw it originally in the theater and wanted to see it again. I will warn you, it is rated R for a reason. That reason is language. If the language in any movie has ever turned you off, then this one will turn you off also.

With that caveat, I loved this movie. It was funny. It fit in with the other movies in the View Askewniverse. It had inside jokes all over the place. It had great cameos including Ben Affleck as a character and as himself. It even had Mark Hamill. This is clearly his best work since Return of the Jedi, and probably since The Empire Strikes Back.

If you are unfamiliar with writer/director Kevin Smith's work, I recommend that you start by seeing his first movie Clerks. After that almost any of them make sense, though if you watch them in order you will get more inside jokes.

On my scale of 1-100, I rate this a 92.
