Trivia

This is one of the two times Kevin Smith has appeared as Silent Bob in a film that's not his. The other was in Scream 3. There have been many debates. Does Kevin Smith really play Silent Bob despite Jason Mewes referring to him as 'John'. Most people believe Smith does play Silent Bob since he is in the same costume as 'Mallrats' See more »

Good, but not Great.
31 March 2004 | by (Midlands, Englad) – See all my reviews

I finally tracked down a copy of Drawing Flies on DVD - O.K., I had to go on holiday to Canada, but I got it, and that's the main thing! To be honest, I wasn't expecting much, as pretty much all I knew about the film apart from the View Askew connection was that it was very low budget, and in black & white. However, it's got a very `Clerks` style of script (no bad thing), and some sharp and witty lines. Unfortunately, to me, the script seems just a little underdeveloped. Not bad, just, not quite fully rounded. But hey it's low budget, and fun ... perhaps I'm being overcritical. The cameos are fun to spot - mostly under assumed names, too - and the cast seem to be having a whale of a time. One thought - wonder if the makers of The Blair Witch Project ever saw this film? Black and white / Lost in the woods / mysterious monster lurking / injuries / fallings out ....... Hmmmmmmm
