Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
I don’t have the best history with Jay & Silent Bob as characters. Yup Clerks, Mall Rats and the early ViewAskew movies they were great (as were the films) but I never loved Strike Back as much as most seem to. At the same time Smith the director hasn’t made a great film in a long, long time. So is Jay And Silent Bob Reboot a return to form? Well kinda, If by form you mean puerile cock and getting stoned jokes. Look I have huge affection for Smith – he seems like one of the good guys – but this low budget reboot is a one joke film with a few good sniggers along the way. Those who love Smith will forgive it (like me I guess) but there is zero here to make new fans and more jokes miss than land.
Best Bit: Batfleck jokes
